Very Well Done Debut! And another new author to keep on my radar.
Most of us have probably read stories, both fiction and non-fiction involving child abduction, but LITTLE LOVELY THINGS has one unsettling, gut-wrenching part, in particular, that will stay with me for a long time that occurs after a mother's violent illness and frightening decision.
What you'll find here is a compelling read about a struggling, loving family with two adorable children and great prospects for the future, a dog nicknamed G you will come to love, a mysterious, gifted man with a troubled past, an old, clever psychiatrist....and two brainless, desperate young adults you are guaranteed to abhor who make the worst decisions.
Don't miss LITTLE LOVELY THINGS, a painfully tragic, but hopeful story.

When Claire Rawlings thought of her family, it was more with the mind of a geologist than a physician—the sweeping drumlin of Andrea’s collarbone, the narrow plain of Lily’s sternum, the sculpted features of Glen’s face. Her dreams, too, were crowded with images of rocks and continents gliding, meeting at ragged seams, and then drifting apart.The drama immediately introduced the reader to Claire's foggy and frenetic, almost clairvoyant, dream, that would remain part of the living nightmare she would soon encounter.
