photoIn her latest novel "Lost in the Forest," author Sue Miller tells the story of a very familiar, complex, contemporary American family that finds itself deep in the woods of life.

Just hours before the book opens, Eva is widowed when her second husband John dies in a freak accident. Ex-husband, Mark, is called in for emergency duty — then wants to rekindle the old flame or thinks he does. Meanwhile, teenage daughter, Daisy, spins into an affair with a much older man.

Since her big breakthrough novel "The Good Mother" more than 20 years ago, Sue Miller has been exploring family dynamics right down to the emotional core. What she exposes is rarely pretty, always real, and often sexually charged. For Sue Miller's devoted readers, the emotional bond with her very human characters goes on long after the last pages are turned.
