With her 30th novel, "Little Night," bestselling author Luanne Rice takes a look at a subject near and dear to her heart - domestic violence and how it affects the entire family.
About The Book:
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.
In winter 2012 Luanne interviewed women whose lives have been touched by abuse. Three women told their stories, including Luanne, who was in an abusive marriage herself. Between now and June 5th, when LITTLE NIGHT is published, Luanne will be posting the videos to her website (www.luannerice.net).
