When the glamorous cocktail waitress Zoe Kruller is found brutally murdered in her bed, her estanged husband, Delray Kruller, and her lover, Eddy Deihl, become prime suspects in the case.

Little Bird of Heaven is the told by two very different characters, Krista Deihl and Arron Kruller, each of them believing the other's father is guilty of Zoe's murder.

Set in the city of Sparta New York, Oates weaves a beautifully sad story of love, loss, yearning and archaic desire in a world of poverty and pain.

Throughout the novel, the reader is left cheering for both Krista and Aaron, hoping that somehow they'll come to terms with Zoe's death, forgive and fall in love. Definitely worth a read.

This book is adult and I do not recommend it for teen readers.
