"Little Night" by Luanne Rice was a intriguing family drama read in that it was a little different from my normal reads that this read simply blow me away. It was not a easy read in that it will bring to light."violence, family abuse, narcissistic disorders, prison time, death and murder." "Little Night" plot will bring to you many twist and turns as this story will go back and forth from the past to present...Clare and Grit's point of view with Anne's journals and website. The story picks up with Annie trying to protect her sister from a very abusive husband (Fredrick) who was a abuser, and Clare hit him on the head with a poker and was sent to jail for several years due to the fact that her 'own sister...Anne lied on the stand for her husband...Now Anne was out of jail.. only to get a visit from Anne's daughter Grit for a visit to New York... and this will be the part where I will say you must pick up "Little Night" to see once again how Clare's life will change and especially whether Clare will be able to ever forgive her sister Anne and what about Clare's feelings for Paul?

The characters were all very well developed with such emotions that really made this a very realistic story and "Little Night" will give you a very sensitive heartbreaking read.

I think this author did a wonderful job as "she weaves, pain, death, sorrow, betrayal, abandonment, forgiveness and love all in a well written story" that has been well delivered to the reader and yes. I would definitely recommend "Little Night" as a excellent read.
