Publisher's Summary

Lydia Millet's chilling new novel is the first-person account of a young mother, Anna, escaping her cold and unfaithful husband, a businessman who's just launched his first campaign for political office.
When Ned chases Anna and their six-year-old daughter from Alaska to Maine, the two go into hiding in a run-down motel on the coast. As his pursuit of Anna and their child moves from threatening to criminal, Ned begins to alter his wife's world in ways she never could have imagined.
This double-edged and satisfying story features a strong female protagonist, a thrilling plot, and a creeping sense of the apocalyptic. Sweet Lamb of Heaven builds to a shattering ending with profound implications for its characters.

Disappointing narration and hard to follow

This book was hard to follow, as I wasn't expecting the sci-fi element. Also due to the narrator's voice - so dull, not suited for an audiobook. I really think the lack of inflection made it harder to follow as well as simply boring at times. One part involved singing and it was cringe worthy. Overall, this book is not worth listening to.
