This book had me from the very beginning when Sunny is awoken by her mother who sends her and her three children away before they "drink the rainbow" which sends them away to everlasting peace through the gates but as we know it, a mass suicide at a time decided by the leader.

Thought provoking life story. All Fall Down is not your typical Megan Hart book. At least not so much what I'm used to reading from her, although I know she started out writing this type of fiction. However, it's one of those books that you want to stop reading but you can't put it down.
Extremely well written, it tells us the story of Sunshine. She's 19 years old and has three kids, Happy, Bliss and Peace. Sunny was raised in what you would normally call ...more

All Fall Down started out strong but eventually fell flat. The first couple chapters were the most compelling, and I ...more
I was disappointed the author made no attempt to address the issues surrounding paternity of Sunny's children and how they came to be conceived. Nor did the author address issues of ...more
This was a surprise book for me. I was expecting a hot and lusty book and it's not. I am a Megan Hart fan and this book did not disappoint. It's a great story with colorful characters and a really, really good story. The end could have lasted a couple lines longer, but perhaps leaving as is is what made the book so good.
This story is if being human, love and working through the rough stuff. It has a unique background and it played out really well in the book. I ...more
Most of you know how much I love Megan Hart's stories. Most of the titles of Hart's that I previously chose, were in the romance genre. But imagine my surprise when I saw this adult fiction title. Excitement didn't even begin to describe how I felt.
Megan Hart's All Fall Down is an emotionally powerful tale of family, faith, and self-love. I warn you now, this book talks about some heavy subjects. I think I lost a lot of tears reading this book. Hart does not pull any punche ...more
I absolutely adore the cover of this book. It's so simplistic yet ominous. It's the perfect cover to signal that something not quite right is going to happen in the novel. The storm clouds are gorgeous. Gah, I just love the cover. Kudos to the designer. So I remember reading the synopsis when I requested this novel but until I started reading it, I completely forgot what it was about.
What I really liked about this novel was the characterizatio ...more
My emotions were all over the place with this story. I think because I know it happens all the time, or at least most of the story.

The story is about Sunny, who is raised in one of those crazy religious cults that twist things. When we meet Sunny she is 19 years old and has 3 children under the age of 4. Let that sink in for a minute or so and you realize just what has been happening. At this time Su ...more
