Sweet Lamb of HeavenBook - 2016
A mother tries to reconcile the voices in her head and an extortionist estranged husband in a peculiar, stirring thriller. Anna, the narrator of Millet's 10th novel, began hearing an inexplicable "stream of chatter" after her daughter, Lena, was born. The voices diminished after a year, and a split from her husband, Ned, prompted her to move from her native Alaska to a coastal Maine motel with a decidedly eerie cast; in time she'll learn it's an unwitting magnet for others with similar conditions. But Anna has more pressing problems: Ned is running for the Alaska state Senate and wants Anna and Lena to head back to Anchorage to serve as photo-op props. When Anna demurs, Ned turns threatening; when she tries to hasten a divorce, Lena is kidnapped.
