Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer, how Isabelle, the last daughter of the Richardson children, had finally gone round the bend and burned the house down. By the time the fire had been put out the house had not , despite Mrs Richardson’s fear, quite burned to the ground. The windows were all gone but the brick shell of the house remained, damp and blackened. Little Fires Everywhere is Little Brown’s lead fiction title for 2018 and everyone is talking about it. Exclusive information, Reese Witherspoon has announced that she’ll be making a mini-series around this novel. As I enjoyed this book so much I can’t wait to see Reese Witherspoon act in this psychological mystery story about parenthood, politics, community, race and devastating secrets.
