I can't say I loved this book BUT I loved parts of it. It's an engaging suspense/horror story. It's also an accurate domestic abuse polemic. But it is also a religious/philosophical exploration. I was entertained but also intellectually…

I may have missed a couple things due to listening to this one, but I really enjoyed it. The suspense has a calm and dry, yet constant feel that I found appealing in this thriller mystery about a woman, her mind and the man who infiltrates…

Millet's story collection, Love in Infant Monkeys, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. This book, Sweet Lamb of Heaven, is the first work of hers that I have read, but it will by no means be the last. Both a gripping thriller and a poem…

It took me a while to immerse myself in this book. And then, just a few chapters from the end, it turned into a metaphysical contemplation on the nature of god. It felt like magic realism, crossed with intrigue, with the feeling of a…

Just when you think you know where the narrative is going, Millet's novel reveals surprising depths. This novel about a woman taking her child and fleeing her abusive political husband to live with a similar group of outcasts at an…

Seriously creepy, but also thought provoking. This book deserves a second read.
