"In her riveting new novel, Miller once again demonstrates her singular gift for capturing the rhythms of daily family life with laserlike clarity while also summoning the turbulent emotions swirling just beneath the surface....Fluidly written, perfectly paced." (Booklist)
"Bestseller Miller examines love and betrayal in idyllic wine country in another minutely observed, finely paced exploration of domestic relationships....The backdrop of California vineyards is ideal for the growth and life-cycle themes that Miller so carefully cultivates." (Publishers Weekly)
"Engrossing characters and a plot that turns unexpected corners." (Kirkus Reviews)

Captivating & Entertaining
This is the first Sue Miller book I have listened too and I plan on listening to her others. "Lost in the Forest" was easy to listen too and really drew you into the lives of the characters. It was hard not to feel the pain of the loss of the childrens father/step-father and become involved in their worlds. I found myself hating Duncan for his role in Daisy's life and sincerely hoping for a reconciliation between Eva & Mark. I definitely recommend taking the time to listen to this book. It moves along quickly but not too quickly that you loose your way in the story. Millers writing style isn't overly wordy or descriptive so you don't get bored but you can visualize the tale she is telling.

Fast moving, true to life
This is a great book! I found it thoroughly engrossing. There is a great cast of characters: conflicted adults, teenagers, children, etc. The dialogue for each of these seemed very real to me. (In many ways, the writing reminded me of Anne Tyler, another author I very much enjoy.) This story is not told in a fully linear fashion. Each of the main characters has a subplot and separate point of view. The narration moves between these inter-related subplots. Sometimes, parts of the story are told in flashback. I knew it was all going to resolve in the end. However, I did not foresee the ending, which I found full of insight. Blair Brown does a fantastic job of narrating. She captures each character's voice with individuality. Highly recommended!
