Three Little Truths is an entertaining story about women living in the same neighborhood. Martha moved is new to the neighborhood and trying not to tell anyone why they moved. Robin is back living in the house she grew up in with her son. Edie is trying so hard to fit in with the neighbors and finally feels like she belongs with Martha and Robin. All the women have secrets. Secrets start to be revealed once Martha mentions why their family moved and Edie starts looking into.

I really enjoyed Three Little Truths. There was so much drama in this book that kept me interested. Eithne Shortall did a great job introducing all the characters’ stories in a way that was easy to keep up with. All of the characters were very unique and I enjoyed their interactions. There were Whats App conversations at the end of some chapters that were entertaining and unique. Three Little Truths was my first book by Eithne Shortall but won’t be my last.

I recommend Three Little Truths for fans of Big Little Lies.

Thank you Edelweiss and G.P. Putnam’s Son/Penguin Publishing group for Three Little Truths.

About the author

Eithne Shortall is an author, journalist and occasional broadcaster. Her debut novel, Love in Row 27, has been published in 13 languages. Grace After Henry (2018) was an international bestseller, won Best Page Turner at the UK’s Big Book Awards and was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards. Her third novel, Three Little Truths, was selected for BBC Radio Two’s prestigious book club and named the best popular fiction title of the year by the Daily Mail. It has just been published in North America.

Eithne is the chief arts writer with the Irish edition of the Sunday Times newspaper.

Eithne was born and grew up in Dublin, Ireland. She studied journalism at Dublin City University and spent four months living in West Virginia. She lived in Paris for a year in her early twenties and vaguely thought about writing. She went to London to write her first novel, Love in Row 27, which is set there. Her follow-up, Grace after Henry, is set in – and is partly a love letter to – Dublin, where she now lives. Three Little Truths is inspired by the Dublin cul-de-sac on which Eithne grew up – though her mother wishes she’d stop telling people this.

Eithne has been a regular contributor to RTE Radio for several years. She has worked as a TV presenter with RTE, BBC Northern Ireland and she fronted a music series, entitled Ceol ar an Imeall, for TG4.

Eithne is an avid cyclist, voracious reader, eater of sweets and lover of radio. Her Mastermind topic would be the life of Lucia Joyce, twentieth century Irish visual art, 1980s teen movies or Dawson’s Creek. It depends on the day.

She lives in Dublin with her partner and son.
