About the Author
"[A] solid debut . . . Farrell's thoughtful novel calls to mind the heights of Rafael Yglesias's Fearless."
--Booklist "The Falling Woman is a thoughtful, intelligent, and meticulously crafted novel about expectations and choices, tragedies and miracles, limitations and freedom. I enjoyed every page; it is a gem."
--T. Greenwood, author of Keeping Lucy "A stunning debut, The Falling Woman kept me riveted to the very last page. Without sacrificing an ounce of suspense, Farrell manages to ask the big questions about life and love. This is a novel that is perfect for book clubs."
--Thomas Greene, author of The Perfect Liar and The Housemaster's Wife "The Falling Woman is the kind of novel I like best: a page-turning glimpse into a world I have always been curious about (an investigation of a commercial airline accident) combined with great writing, great plotting and a thoughtful plumbing of what makes us human--with a twist at the end. Highly recommended."
--B.A. Shapiro, author of The Collector's Apprentice "What would you do if you were confronted with a miracle? That is the essential question posed in The Falling Woman, a surprisingly spiritual novel about a plane crash. Two people entwined in the investigation, both in desperate need of hope--and a true home--grapple with an answer, which may prove as perilous as the catastrophe. Part mystery and part prayer, this page turner about mortality is iridescent. I loved it."
--Robin Oliveira, author of Winter Sisters
