Overview

If you could take just one thing back… Every Little Thing explores how lives are shaped by the butterfly effect of decisions that go desperately wrong. After a shocking family tragedy, Cohen Davies feels isolated, guilty, and numb to everything except the allure of his new neighbor, Allie Crosbie. She’s a free spirit, and he sees in her the perfect place to bury his troubles. But when Allie’s father asks an unfathomable favour, Cohen’s decision to help him sets off a chain reaction of irrevocable events that leave one man dead, one man assaulted, and Cohen incarcerated. In the aftermath, Allie will reveal a shocking secret of her own. With his award-winning debut, Away From Everywhere, Chad Pelley showed us his verve as a novelist; Every Little Thing shows us the flipside of love, and Pelley cuts no corners in exposing how a secret kept to protect love can just as easily destroy a life.
