Louisa Jardine is the older one, the conscientious sister who is a good student, and yearns for a good marriage, a career and a family. Clem Jardine is the younger sister -- the uncontainable rebel, daring and irresistible to men, and a constant source of frustration to her more reliable sister. Alternating between the sisters voices, I See You Everywhere unfolds across a 25-year span, from 1980 to 2005, beginning when Louisa and Clem are in their early twenties. It takes us into the dark hearts of jealousy and anger, then waltzes us into the sweetness of affection and devotion. In this vivid, heart-rending story of what we can -- and cannot -- do for those we love, the sisters grow emotionally closer as they move geographically farther apart. Louisa settles in New York, while Clem becomes a wildlife biologist and travels from one exotic place to another.
