Life is full of decisions.
Take the path on the left and turn into a beautiful princess. Veer right and wind up homeless. Choices, we make them every day.

I was on a path. I was going to become an improved version of Jade Hart, immersing myself in the world of art, but that didn’t happen. Instead, I’m on a new road, failing miserably, wondering how I ended up in this place.

This was my first read by H.M.Sholander and was purely an amazing but emotional book to read. I devoured every beautiful word written on that page. I must say going into this blind and not knowing what to expect was what motivated me to read, besides the beautiful cover and synopsis that pushed me into reading. But I love reading a book by an author I never read from before, it's like taking a exciting journey to a new land.

I'm so glad I took this journey because it was one I would never forget

The Truth About Falling is a contemporary romance that shows the impact on our lives (and the lives of others) of decisions we make all the time and that sometimes the decisions that we make can catch us out. The book tells the story of Jade and Hudson.

The Truth About Falling by H.M. Sholander 5 Stars!!!

This book is full of feels and had me lost in the world of Jade and Hudson from page one. This is one of those stories that the characters will stay with me long after the book is over. This is my first book by H.M. Sholander, but won't be my last! The way she writes had me wrapped up in the story and lost to reality. Once I picked up this book, I couldn't put it down. Jade is a pessimist, but the further you get into the book, you realize her

The Truth About Falling by H. M. Sholander is a fantastic book! It’s honestly the perfect rainy day read; it’s a sad yet beautiful story that I got completely swept up in. It was definitely an emotional read for me, I experienced so much sadness, pity, and anger and I shed quite a few tears.

Rated 5 stars

This was a great story! It was at times very emotional on the happy and sad side. I loved the cover of the book and the story on the inside only made it better. Hudson (I love his name) was amazing in all ways. I could totally picture him via the lovely description. He is that quiet intense guy. I liked how he lit up when he was speaking of his son. I could almost picture it. His voice and his actions (swoon) speak of the wonderful guy he is.

Reading The Truth About Falling was devastating. Reaching the end was magical. The ending so perfect, I could not imagine any other.

From the very first sentence I was connected to the soul of Jade.
Jade: “Life is a balancing act of learning how to manage responsibilities, free time, and relationships. I’m failing at all three.” Jade is such a selfless person. Giving so much and yet not allowing anything or any time for herself, she has forgotten how to since she has left her dreams behind to take care of her mother and father. She is the type of soul I understand, one that wants to heal and fix all the broken ones out there.

The Trust About Falling by H.M. Sholander is a book I'm so glad I picked up to read. Jade has the weight of the world on her shoulders caring for her family. After giving up her dream she is just trying to make it through the day at not one but two jobs. I can relate to her having to care of her family because I did the same thing when I was sixteen and my Mom was laid off from her job. It has caused Jade to grow up way too fast and has given her a jaded (no pun intended) view of life.

The truth about falling by H.M. Sholander was an amazing read for me. The story was so beautifully heartbreaking that it both hurt and healed reading it. Sholander found ways to bring in every type of reader, and keeps you hooked to every word on the page. Falling is about a young daughter and her mother, and how easily you can be going down one path and then be pushed onto another one altogether. The story of Jade and Hudson is one filled with many detours and threats to their budding relations ...more

“The Truth About Falling” by H. M. Sholander is a heartfelt, emotional journey that kept me glued to the story and reaching for tissues. I absolutely LOVE this book. The feelings expressed by Jade struck a chord with me for personal reasons. (Sorry to be vague but I don’t want to spoil Jade’s story.)

The Truth about Falling by H.M. Sholander is a beautifully written book about the paths we take in life and where we end up at the end.

I loved that she wasn’t one to sit back and let the hard blows from life to keep her down when it mattered. I equally loved Hudson, for his unending support and love for those that he care ...more
