Little Bird of Heaven by Joyce Carol Oates
Little Bird of Heaven is set again in Sparta, NY. Zoe Kruller, a country singer who has left her husband, Delray, and had an affair with Eddy Diehl, is found murdered. Her loose morals and behavior didn't endear her to the other denizens of Sparta. When the local police can't solve the murder, townspeople feel free to voice their own suspicions. Krista, Eddy's daughter, longs for Aaron, Delray's son, and both believe the other's father is responsible for the murder. Joyce Carol Oates' novel has received positive reviews with BookPage saying, "Little Bird of Heaven is classic Oates. Its depiction of violence, families falling from grace and social class disparities, as well as its location, recall her 1996 bestseller, We Were the Mulvaneys. Fans of Oates will delight in this offering and newcomers to her work will receive a first-class introduction."
