Elevenyearold Brian Page spends every waking moment in the forest behind the house where he lives with his father. But forests are always deeper than anyone can know. Secrets are hidden in the eternal twilight of the trees. Those secrets emerge into light when Brian disappears in the forest, as his father did three decades before. His father, however, came home with no memory of the events in the depths of the forest. What has drawn Brian away? Will he emerge, shuddering and broken, as his father did, or will the forests close around him, as they have done so often before?

Editorial Reviews

Victoria local Robert J. Wiersema's soon-in-bookstores new novella The World More Full of Weeping, establishes an immediately-chilling mood before you've even opened it up. That mood is set by its well-crafted cover - an eerie glow peeking through dark, fogged woods. It makes for a perfect introduction to the story, which wastes no time to reveal what will be a haunting tone throughout. Eleven-year-old Brian Page is missing after wandering off into the woods behind his home. The story bounces back between the point of view of Brian's worried father and Brian himself. This is not your average story, nor your typical tale of a missing child. Once again (as he did with Before I Wake in 2006, which went on to be a national bestseller), Wiersema takes readers to a new and unnerving place, complete with spine-tingling chills. Weeping is an immediately engaging, fully supplementing quick read that brings you back to the days of spooky campfire stories that go on to make for a sleepless night wandering around your own imagination. This novella is a refreshing break amongst the monotony of boringly average, everyday reads. It coasts along naturally with Wiersema's vivid writing, keeping you glued to the page.If you have yet to have read his debut bestseller, be sure to check it out as well. Jillayna Adamson, The MartletRating: 5/5   Brian Page is an eleven year old boy who unlike most boy’s his age, spends most of his time in the woods behind his house. There he can explore not only the secrets of his surroundings but the feelings he’s having now that his parents are apart. One day Brian goes out and simply doesn’t come back, just like his father thirty years before.His father, unable to remember his own experience, wastes no time to call the authorities to launch a search a rescue. But what has really happened to Brian? Is he simply lost or has something more sinister wrapped itself around the family?Not a fan of novellas, their stories usually poorly developed and lacking depth for the length. But Wiersema has created a creepy little story here (literally got chills), that not only drew me in completely but made me wish that it had been a full length novel. The writing was not only rich but also powerful. It touched on a subject close to my heart and experience. Great read!Rachelle Gagné, The Novel Blog
