REVIEW by Heather: Little Night by Luanne Rice

Clare Burke’s life took a devastating turn when she tried to protect her sister, Anne, from an abusive and controlling husband and ended up serving prison time for assault. The verdict largely hinged on Anne’s defense of her spouse—all lies—and the sisters have been estranged ever since. Nearly twenty years later, Clare is living a quiet life in Manhattan as an urban birder and nature blogger, when her niece, Grit, turns up on her doorstep.

The two long for a relationship with each other, but they’ll have to dig deep into their family’s difficult past in order to build one. Together they face the wounds inflicted by Anne and find in their new connection a place of healing. When Clare begins to suspect her sister might be in New York, she and her niece hold out hope for a long-awaited reunion with her.


Okay.  I’ll start with my typical disclaimer for this sort of situation:  I *hate* giving bad reviews to authors that I usually love.  That said, keep reading for my 2 cents.

Honestly, I can’t even give too much of a review, as I have absolutely no emotional ties to this book whatsoever.  I found the characters very depressing and unlikable, and I found the main theme {bird watching} extremely boring (to the point that I had to skip entire scenes).  That is the extent of my review:  depressing characters, boring plot.

 I give Little Night 1 Heel.
