3 ½ stars

Falling is about grief, from first to last page

..A lot of water, from the tiniest trickle to the roar of the Niagara Falls

....Lovely literature about life and loss and love

......Life after Lisa’s drowning; its aftermath for other characters

........I wanted to know more about Lisa

..........Nearly two-thirds through, a crafty countdown; no punctuation

.......... Given the ending, the reader can perhaps see a glimmer of hope

Stephen Very creative review, Bonnie!

Bonnie Thanks, Stephen! I actually tried quite a number of formats but unfortunately, none of them worked. It took me almost as long trying as it took to read the book - just kidding!:)
