And Then She Fell by Alicia Elliott

Alice looks like she has the perfect life with her husband and newborn daughter. Below the surface, however, she struggles with imposter syndrome, motherhood and the isolation of being the only Indigenous resident of her upscale Toronto neighborhood. As strange things occur and her neighbors’ behavior takes a sinister turn, Alice grows convinced that her goal of writing a modern retelling of the Haudenosaunee creation story holds the key to her and her daughter’s survival.

And Then She Fell is a thrilling debut. Alice Elliot’s intricately woven novel takes on racism, genocide, postpartum depression, addiction and more while skillfully blending genres.

I loved C Pam Zhang’s fantastical western How Much of These Hills Is Gold. I only read it recently, so I’m excited to see what else she has in store. Land of Milk and Honey is, at the same time, an exploration of desire and deception and a love letter to food that’s a true feast for the senses.
