In the Little Moments is a novel that follows Justine and her father, Richard, through the course of nineteen years. What is included here is the first thirty percent of the novel. The novel focuses on the effects of small moments throughout our lives that ultimately shape us. There are two simultaneous narratives at play in this story: Richard’s and Justine’s. Richard’s narrative arc moves in a forward direction while Justine’s moves in a reverse timeline. Ultimately their narratives meet at a small moment that changed their relationship forever. The novel focuses heavily on child parent relationships and the effects of loss on those relationships. Richard’s issues imprint on to Justine, dooming her the same as him. Each scene has a loose connection to the others, which ultimately form a full picture of life. Little moments and big events together form humans, and that is what this novel aims to highlight.
