A murder… A
tragic accident… Or just parents behaving badly? What is indisputable is that
someone is dead.
Big Little Lies
will take you on a roller coaster ride with the secrets of the three women.
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She is funny,
biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste
is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying
a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mum Jane is so
young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious
past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different
crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and
second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the little lies
that can turn lethal.
Over the last few weeks I have been lucky enough to escape
to the fictional town of Woody Creek, a small timber town set in rural
Australia; and what a wonderful time I have had!
Joy Dettman is an Australian author and the very talented writer of the Woody Creek series, which I discovered one day while browsing my local bookstore. Working in a library, I was aware of the books and had wanted to read them for a long time but had never managed to get around to it. On this day, however the bookstore had a display of all the books in the series and they looked so pretty I could not leave them sitting there. I picked up the first two and four weeks later have now finished the whole seven books in the series.
