dc.description.abstract Set against the backdrop of both San Francisco and Los Angeles, The View From Here is a community-based novel that alternates point of view between four characters: Jackie Saunders, an overnight desk clerk searching for a purpose in life; Kayden Liu, Jackie’s childhood best friend, who must face a violent secret of her past before she can fully build her future; Michelle Johnson, a married businesswoman, who must allow herself to see beyond the life she’s created in order to understand the life she wants; and Shannon Eiverson, a photographer with an upcoming show, who wants to “make it” as an artist. While the novel focuses much of its attention on cheating (both the reasons we cheat ourselves and the reasons we cheat on others), at its heart, The View from Here is a novel about friendship, created homes, and the way the lives we’ve led keep us from living the lives we desire. en_US
