Publisher's Summary

In the quiet of a New Zealand winter's night, a rescue helicopter is sent to airlift a five-year-old boy with severe internal injuries. He's fallen from the upstairs veranda of an isolated farmhouse. At first, Finn's fall looks like a horrible accident; but his frantic mother, Martha McNamara, knows how it really happened. And she isn't telling. Not yet. Maybe not ever.

After the fall

Would you consider the audio edition of After the Fall to be better than the print version?

Yes. Nicolette McKenzie did a wonderful job narrating this book. With the exceptions of her accents, which were passable (not great), her tone was pitch-perfect and emotion handled like a paint brush. Her ability to immitate children's voices was well-done without being really annoying, a feat indeed!


Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book and was hooked from the very beginning. One thing I couldn't understand, and probably may not, is Martha's ability to keep secrets to the detriment of her family. Perhaps I will reread this book to get an understanding of the complex loyalties that are beneath the surface, but at a first read I just couldn't get it (the only reason I gave this book 4 stars).

I will read more by both this author and narrator - assuming that whoever published Freeing Grace will allow it to be available in my country (which, as of this review, has not happened).

Great work by a talented author and narrator.

Fascinating insight into complex family issues

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Issues around redundancy, blended family, immigration and addiction are all covered with sensitivity and depth of insight. Characters are well developed and believable.I will be looking for more from this author.
