Sweet Lamb of Heaven

Control. Readers who enjoy finely written psychological fiction with thrilling and complex plots are those most likely to appreciate everything that Lydia Millet achieves in her novel titled, Sweet Lamb of Heaven. Anna is both protagonist and narrator and Millet draws readers inside Anna’s mind to lead us on a thrilling journey of confusion, voices, hallucinations and control by others. Anna’s marriage is troubled, so she takes her six-year-old daughter, Lena, leaves husband, Ned, in Alaska, and heads to Maine. What Anna finds among residents at a Maine motel, and what Ned does provide much of the plot of the novel. Millet writes with great skill, and I enjoyed all the cleverness, confusion and creativity from the beginning to the end of this finely written novel.
