Publisher's Summary

A mother's chance decision leads to a twist of fate that is every parent's worst nightmare. 

Claire Rawlings, mother of two and medical resident, will not let the troubling signs of an allergic reaction prevent her from making it in for rounds. But when Claire's symptoms overpower her while she's driving into work, her two children in tow, she must pull over. 

Moments later, she wakes up on the floor of a gas station bathroom - her car and her precious girls have vanished. The police have no leads, and the weight of guilt presses down on Claire as each hour passes with no trace of her girls. All she has to hold on to are her strained marriage, a potentially unreliable witness who emerges days later, and the desperate but unquenchable belief that her daughters are out there somewhere. 

Little Lovely Things is the story of a family shattered by an unthinkable tragedy. Played out in multiple narrative voices, the novel explores how the lives of those affected fatefully intersect and highlights the potential catastrophe of the small decisions we make every day.

Absolutely stunning

I read this book in one day . The writing was masterful .
It was powerful portraying grief and tragedy and brought me to tears .
There’s mystery and suspense also that kept me from putting it down .
It’s worth 2 credits !
Nothing like a book that’s it is so good that you hate to see it end .
You won’t regret purchasing this book ......

Fabulous

Not just your topical Mom loses daughter but instead a wonderful story with great characters. My favorite, Coleen or aka Andrea made the book shine with her wonderful talents and wit. Superb narration and writing.

Narration

I’m only on chapter 6 & am liking it a lot so far. BUT, please tell me the bird meets an untimely demise. The squalk the narrator does for the bird is disturbing & entirely annoying! I’m not usually too picky with the narrators & she is doing a good job except for that. I would hate to discontinue a book I am enjoying!
