Right where she was curled up, on the mattress filling most of her slanty-walled attic room. Tian believed that every adult should have a space in the house. A room of their own, even if the room had. That meant the generous bedrooms of the Pioneer Street house had to be partitioned into smaller ones. As the last person to join, Pippa was given the tiny back room on the third floor. Even when Meg and Enoch and their kids moved out, Tian wouldn’t let Pippa take one of their large second-floor bedrooms

A literary late bloomer, Ellen Meeropol began writing fiction in her fifties when she was working as a nurse practitioner in a pediatric hospital. She is a founding member of the Rosenberg Fund for Children and author of the script for their dramatic program Celebrate which has been produced in four cities, most recently in 2007 starring Eve Ensler, David Strathairn and Angela Davis.

Ellen Meeropol is the author of three novels, KINSHIP OF CLOVER (2017), ON HURRICANE ISLAND (2015) and HOUSE ARREST (2011).

Home-care nurse Emily Klein can’t get out of her new assignment – weekly prenatal visits to Pippa Glenning, a young Isis cult member under house arrest for the death of her daughter during a Solstice ceremony. But she takes her work seriously and plays by the rules, so Emily is determined to take good care of her high-profile and unconventional patient.

With two other cult members in prison, Pippa Glenning struggles to keep the household intact. If she follows the rules of her house arrest, she may be allowed to keep her baby; but as the pregnant woman in the family it’s her duty to dance for Isis at the upcoming winter Solstice ceremony. To escape the house arrest without being caught, Pippa needs Emily’s help.

Despite their differences, Emily and Pippa’s friendship grows. Returning to Maine for her grandfather’s funeral, Emily begins to grapple with her parents’ activism a generation earlier and her father’s death in prison. Back home, as the Solstice and the trial approach, anti-cult and racist sentiment in the city escalates. Emily and Pippa must each make decisions about their conflicting responsibilities to their families and to each other – decisions that put their lives, and Pippa’s unborn baby – in jeopardy.

HOUSE ARREST engaged me with complicated well drawn characters and page-turning plot, and impressed and hooked me with the compassion and depth of understanding the author showed towards extremely complicated circumstances. She amazed me with her ability to present a 'cult' with fairness, shaded in ways that avoid all the usual stereotypes.

I avoid reviews which give away plot points, so suffice it to say that this book will hold you, make you think, and take away any ability you have to think of people as flat types. Meeropol takes the reader way behind the headlines.

Highly recommend.

This small book is a fast and compelling read. Very quickly the characters are under your skin. People from supposedly different walks of life have more in common than you or they'd suspect due to trauma and choices. It is the story of loneliness and need, of abandonment and finding family and self. The background is the politically charged days of the near past and the effect those days and the actions of the young parents had on their children and their families.
Choices are made all along by many characters that have rippling affects on all of the families...
The small novel explores different styles of families and of connecting and the way we find succor and safety and danger within those families. There were many moments when you were afraid for the characters and the pages almost turned themselves. An affecting good read

I read this one after Ellen’s 3rd book “Kinship of Clover” and it answered so many questions. The characters are so interesting and fleshed out and the questions it raises are incredibly thought provoking. I can’t wait for her next book to get to know some of these characters even more.

On the surface, House Arrest tells a simple story. A visiting nurse is assigned to provide prenatal care for a woman who's accused of a crime and facing pretrial incarceration, but because she's pregnant, instead of jail, she's allowed house arrest. But under the surface, the characters inhabit a world swirling with secrets and complications. The narrator's father was imprisoned for burning a draft board during the Vietnam War. The women under arrest fled home because of a very different crime. Stir in a religious "cult," a vindictive boss, and a child with spina bifida, and this novel is as intense as a three-alarm fire. The characters are beautifully three-dimensional. The action reminded me of Ordinary People, mundane yet a mile deep. And it stays with you long after you've turned the final page. A marvelous novel, and very "arresting" debut!

House Arrest touches on questions of ethics, relationships, and especially family in a way I've rarely encountered in novels. The characterizations are particularly strong, the plot compelling, and Meeropol writes with enormous sympathy and heart.
  • Swift Summer
House Arrest kept me reading late into the night as I was compelled to see how the story resolved. This book examines complex issues of loss, responsibility to those we love, and forgiveness with complex characters that have lived on in my mind long after I finished. It's that perfect combination in fiction -- a book that makes us think, characters who come alive and a story that keeps the pages turning.

I just finished House Arrest and must say that I really loved it. The complexity of the characters and their interaction with each other, as well as Meeropol's compassionate approach to lives that are not always above reproach moved me more than I can say. The author whose mastery belies the fact that this is her first novel pulls off the rare feat of making the reader identify in turn with various characters. Thus I constantly found myself questioning and then understanding motivations and actions. Bravo for a profoundly original and well-told story.
This first novel is a good story well told. While Meeropol's prose are straightforward, she allows the ambiguity of moral dilemmas to unfold subtley and naturally. This creates a depth that enriches the experience of reading. I look forward to what this author does next!
