Summary of Little Night Summary of Little Night Reviews for Little Night An Excerpt from Little Night
The New York Times–bestselling author’s heart-wrenching chronicle of a woman and her niece, who attempt to build the relationship they longed for all their lives
Luanne Rice knows women. The author of thirty-one novels, Rice is a master at creating vivid female characters and capturing their complex family dynamics, and Little Night is one of her most powerful novels yet.
Clare Burke’s life took a devastating turn when she defended her sister, Anne, from an abusive husband and ended up serving prison time for assault. Nearly twenty years later—long estranged from her sister—Clare is living a quiet life in Manhattan as an urban birder and nature blogger, when Anne’s daughter, Grit, shows up on her doorstep. When it appears that Anne has followed Grit, each woman wonders what their long-awaited reunion will bring. Little Night is a riveting story about women and the primal, tangled family ties that bind them together.
Praise for LITTLE NIGHT:
“Poetic and stirring . . . beautifully combines [Rice’s] love nature and the power of family.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Best-selling author Rice’s 30th book is an outstanding read that both chills and warms the soul . . . highly recommended.”
—Library Journal, starred review
“Never rushing her story or revelations, Rice reaches the satisfying conclusion that while wounds run deep, love runs deeper.”
“A classic Rice page-turner.”
“In Little Night, Rice plumbs the depths of the damage that physical and mental abuse cause the recipients and allows us into the heads of those who suffer these situations. In spite of the serious nature of the subject matter, the story is filled with happy moments and an undying hope for future happiness.”
