									Sue MillerSue Miller
Sue Miller is an expert in limning the pain of endings, but if this were the extent of her talents, she probably would not be as successful as she is. In Miller's books, one broken relationship often leads to the development of another. Her stories may not offer pat answers and perfect love stories, but readers find something more rewarding in the end.

Lost in the Forest
by Sue Miller

While I Was Gone
by Sue Miller
An Oprah pick in 2000, While I Was Gone is a story of love, betrayal, and forgiveness (of course) that asks what it means to be a good wife. It works as a kind of talisman for domesticated baby boomers who fondly remember -- and want to revisit -- the secrets of their wild youths. More importantly, it's also a story about people who think they know themselves and the world.
