Reviews

"What a clever, brilliant tale. Every time I thought I had the mystery of the Bridges puzzled out, Shawntelle Madison surprised me with another twist of this family's tangled roots. I've seldom read such a unique novel--or one so eloquent and thoughtful, with so much to say about the complexities of generational trauma and the importance of understanding one's own ancestors. The Fallen Fruit will stay with me for a very long time." -- Olivia Hawker, bestselling author of One for the Blackbird, One for the Crow

"What an amazing debut novel! The Fallen Fruit follows members of the Bridge family as they cope with a curse that hits every generation. I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down! I am in awe of the amount of research Shawntelle Madison put into The Fallen Fruit. She covers several historical periods in this one story. I felt like I was immersed in each distinct setting as I read. All I can say is: More please!"
-- Kaia Alderson, author of Sisters in Arms

"A mesmerizing tale of a family bound by an extraordinary curse--an uncontrollable ability to fall backwards in time. Spanning generations, their saga weaves a rich tapestry of American history, from the Revolutionary War to the brink of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. I loved this book. I wish I could go back in time to read it again for the first time."
-- Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of The Many Daughters of Afong Moy

"A captivating historical fantasy, Madison's novel The Fallen Fruit, is an epic multi-generational tale you don't want to miss! When Cecily Bridge-Davis discovers a family curse sends one Bridge from every generation back in time, it's a race to find the cause before Fate claims her too. In this meticulously researched and beautifully written novel, Madison sweeps us on an adventure through time and history with characters you'll love and secrets you can't wait to uncover."
-- Eliza Knight, USA Today and international bestselling author of Can't We Be Friends

"A brilliantly written, spellbinding, and timeless tale spanning decades and centuries."
-- Rochelle Alers, national bestselling author of Hideaway

"In The Fallen Fruit, Shawntelle Madison delivers an Octavia Butler-esque page-turning saga about a family bound by blood and the chains of history. This brilliantly imaginative and wildly unpredictable novel is riveting and revelatory."

-- Stephanie Dray, NYT Bestselling Author of Becoming Madam Secretary
