An #1 Editor's Pick, Addictive Page-turners
A 2015 San Francisco Chronicle Book Club Pick

"Delicious, lazy-day reading...just don't underestimate the writing." (Editor's Pick)

“Lovely writing guides us through, driven by a quiet generosity.”
—San Francisco Chronicle (2015 Book Club Pick)

“Ellison is a tantalizing storyteller…moving her story forward with cinematic verve.”
—USA Today

“An impressive fiction debut…Both a psychological mystery and a study of the divide between desire and duty.”
—San Jose Mercury News

“Ellison’s debut novel is both juicy and beautifully-written.”

“Ellison writes gracefully, with moments of startling insight.”
—The Rumpus

At nineteen, Annie Black abandons California for a London winter of drinking to abandon and looking for love in the wrong places. Twenty years later, she is a happily married mother of three living in San Francisco. Then one morning, a photograph arrives in her mailbox, and an old obsession is awakened.

After a return trip to London, Annie’s marriage falters, her store floods, and her son, Robbie, takes a night-time ride that nearly costs him his life. Now Annie must fight to save her family by untangling the mysteries of that reckless winter in Europe that drew an invisible map of her future.

With the brilliant pacing and emotional precision that won Jan Ellison an O. Henry Prize for her first published story, A Small Indiscretion announces a major new voice in suspense fiction as it unfolds a story of denial, obsession, love, forgiveness—and one woman’s reckoning with her own fateful mistakes.
