"Susan Fletcher's first novel . . . is one of those lyrical books about childhood in which the physical details--the sights, the smells--take on a vividness that's entrancing."--Polly Shulman, New York Times Book Review "Readers who like to plumb the depths of loss and its counterpart--the joy of living--would do well to pick up [Eve Green]."--Jessica Treadway, Chicago Tribune

After her young mother's sudden death eight-year-old Eve is sent to live with her grandparents in rural Wales. In this unfamiliar world, she is told stories about her relatives but is forbidden to ask about her father, an Irish thief who abandoned her mother. When an older girl in town disappears, Eve is drawn into the longstanding secrets and suspicions of her town. A rare page turner, Eve Green is a dramatic story about a grievous error of judgment.
