One minute John is the cornerstone of Eva's world, rock to his two teenage stepdaughters and his own son Theo, the next he is tossed through the air in a traffic accident, and snapped like a twig. His sudden death changes everything. Eva struggles with the terror and desolation of loneliness, and finds herself drawn back to her untrustworthy ex-husband; Emily, the eldest daughter, grapples with her new-found independence and responsibility. Little Theo can only begin to fathom the permanence of his father's death. But for Daisy, John's absence opens up a whole world of confusion just at the onset of adolescence and blossoming sexuality. And in steps a man only too willing to take advantage.show more

Review quote

'Sue Miller has been making it new now for a long time, and Lost in the Forest is a shining affirmation that her power only continues to grow' Washington Post 'Sue Miller's latest novel secures her place in the company of writers like Anne Tyler and Alison Lurie ... Lost in the Forest has a seemingly effortless grace; Miller quickly captures and never loses our attention' Daily Mail 'Sue Miller brings unusual skill in the exploration of women's hopes and regrets. The careful build-up of detail, and an acute understanding of all the facts and feelings which lie behind disguises, make this a sensitive examination of two private lives' Sunday Telegraph 'Wonderful - rich, intelligent and moving ... this is the fiction we need' Los Angeles Timesshow more
