Description

Little Fires Everywhere 'To say I love this book is an understatement...It moved me to tears' Reese Witherspoon

'Just read it...Outstanding' Matt Haig

Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned - from the layout of the winding roads, to the colours of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren - an enigmatic artist and single mother- who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenage daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than just tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past, and a disregard for the rules that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.

When old family friends attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town - and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at an unexpected and devastating cost...

    Being an avid thriller reader mainly, I was not sure I would like this style of book but having read a glowing review in The Times magazine I thought I’d have a go at something different. I’m very glad I did as this is a brilliantly told story that pitches you into both sides of the various arguments and leaves you having to think very hard onto whose side you’re on. Down to the way the story unfolds and the people are depicted its impossible not to be drawn towards both sides in each of the conflicts, which I think is the authors point in that there’s no right way but instead various ways of doing things. Highly recommend and will seek out her debut novel also.
