THE ARSONIST (07/2014)

Sue Miller is an American writer who has written many bestselling novels. As a single mother she had little time to write and her first novel was not published until 1986. Since then several novels have been made into feature films and some became award winners.

I have always been a loyal fan. When I discovered she purchased a condo in the same building as my son, I could barely contain myself.  Since my stalking skills are limited, I settled for an occasional glimpse.(Very occasional..actually not at all)
Her new book THE ARSONIST was recently released to glowing reviews.

Here's what one reviewer said....

Troubled by the feeling that she belongs nowhere after working in East Africa for fifteen years, Frankie Rowley has come home—home to the small New Hampshire village of Pomeroy and the farmhouse where her family has always summered. On her first night back, a house up the road burns to the ground. Then another house burns, and another, always the houses of the summer people. In a town where people have never bothered to lock their doors, social fault lines are opened.

Suspenseful, sophisticated, rich in psychological nuance and emotional insight, The Arsonist is vintage Sue Miller—a finely wrought novel about belonging and community, about how and where one ought to live, about what it means to lead a fulfilling life. One of our most elegant and engrossing novelists at her inimitable best.
