A rippling story for fans of suspenseful domestic dramas
'This page-turner delivers a thoughtful exploration of prejudice, preconceived notions, and what it means to be innocent'
An unforgettable, heart-breaking story
'Therese Anne Fowler has taken the ingredients of racism, justice, and conservative religion and has concocted a feast of a read: compelling, heart-breaking, and inevitable. I finished A Good Neighbourhood in a single sitting. Yes, it's that good.'
A Good Neighbourhood is my favourite kind of novel - compelling, complicated, timely, and smart. With great humanity, Therese Anne Fowler imparts a full-hearted, unflinching indictment of a broken system and in so doing tells a story hard to put down and hard to forget.
'Compelling and captivating, A Good Neighbourhood left me speechless yet wanting to discuss. This is a story that will stick with you for a long time.'
A gripping modern morality tale... Familiar elements - two families, two young lovers, a legal dispute - frame a story that feels both classic and inevitable. But Fowler makes the book her own with smart dialogue, compelling characters and a communal "we" narrator that implicates us all in the wrenching conclusion.
Traversing topics of love, race, and class, this emotionally complex novel speaks to-and may reverberate beyond-our troubled times
A thought provoking and gripping novel - the kind that will have you savouring every page
