Show synopsis Louisa and Clem: two sisters who love each other more the further they move apart. Louisa Jardine is the elder one, the conscientious student, precise and careful, who yearns for a good marriage, a career in the arts, a family. Clem, the archetypal younger sibling, is the rebel: uncontainable, iconoclastic, committed to her work but not to the men who fall for her. Alternating between their voices, "I See You Everywhere" opens when the sisters are in their early twenties, still in the throes of mutual teenage wariness, and unfolds through their lives in a vivid, heart-rending story of what we can and cannot do for those we love.Louisa settles in New York while Clem, a wildlife biologist, moves restlessly about until she lands in the Rocky Mountains. Their complex bond, Louisa observes, is 'like a double helix, two souls coiling around a common axis, joined yet never touching'. Alive with the same sensual detail and riveting characterization that marks Julia Glass' previous novels, "I See You Everywhere" is a powerful and moving double portrait that reveals the very nature of sisterhood.
