Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller, 386 pages

I came across this on the new shelf and there wasn't a description on the front, but from the cover and the blurbs on it, I thought it would be a slightly darker Little House on the Prairie. Boy, was I wrong. It turned out to be set in late 1970s London, with an 8-year-old girl whose father is a survivalist. He ends up basically running away with his daughter to the woods, and the book explores the story. Very dark, creepy, and pretty depressing. Not bad, but a shock to the system when you're expecting Little House.
