  • The Falling Woman, Richard Farrell
    Algonquin Books, 9781616208578, May 19, 2020 (Fiction)

    “Imagine finding out that you have terminal cancer and are faced with the decision of whether or not to seek treatment. The next thing you know you are the only survivor of a plane crash and no one knows who you are or how you survived. The Falling Woman is an unbelievable story about a woman who decides to take control of the rest of her life for the benefit of herself and her family in an unconventional way.  Well written and plausible even though falling out of a plane without injuries seems impossible.”

    Lauren Zimmerman, The Writer’s Block Bookstore (Winter Park, FL)

    “When a modern jetliner explodes over Kansas for no apparent reason, Charles Radford is part of the investigative team sent from the NTSB to determine what happened. The team finds the usual broken airplane, broken bodies — and a story of a survivor who fell from the sky. Radford’s job shifts from identifying the victims to finding this survivor, whoever they are – and even if they exist at all.  Erin Geraghty is flying to San Francisco to a cancer-survivors retreat – even though her cancer is still trying to kill her. After falling 30,000 feet and landing in a farmer’s barn, she walks out of the hospital, determined to disappear once again.”

    Cary Shapiro, Plot Twist Bookstore (Ankeny, IA)
