And When She Was Good

Survivor. In a break from her Tess Monaghan series, novelist Laura Lippman creates a complex protagonist for her novel, And When She Was Good. Heloise has bounced from one abusive relationship to another, and throughout it all, she has survived. Lippman excels at fleshing out the characters in this novel with great skill so that readers can understand their behavior, both good and bad. Deceptions abound in this novel, and Lippman keeps readers interested and engaged in every twist and turn. The subject matter of prostitution can be dicey for any writer to tackle, and Lippman succeeds in presenting this kind of life with perception and insight. Readers who enjoy character driven fiction, especially when the subject matter involves women’s issues, are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
