Review From User :
All the Little Children is a pulse-pounding free fall of a novel. The story of an unnatural disaster and one mother's fierce battle to protect her children rings both hauntingly true and terrifyingly possible. As Furniss wrestles with questions of love and sacrifice, readers are embroiled in their own moral dilemma: What would you do to save the ones you love All the Little Children is gorgeously written, utterly riveting, and bound to be the book everyone is talking about this fall.
When a family camping trip takes a dark turn, how far will one mother go to keep her family safe?
Struggling with working-mother guilt, Marlene Greene hopes a camping trip in the forest will provide quality time with her three young children – until they see fires in the distance, columns of smoke distorting the sweeping view. Overnight, all communication with the outside world is lost.
Knowing something terrible has happened, Marlene suspects that the isolation of the remote campsite is all that’s protecting her family. But the arrival of a lost boy reveals they are not alone in the woods, and as the unfolding disaster ravages the land, more youngsters seek refuge under her wing. The lives of her own children aren’t the only ones at stake.
When their sanctuary is threatened, Marlene faces the mother of all dilemmas: Should she save her own kids or try to save them all?
