Penetrating and Powerful

What did you love best about Fall on Your Knees?

The story was a well-woven tapestry of the human psyche. The inner secrets that manifest our destinies presented in ways that make it hard to simply judge another by their actions.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Francis is a character that fills the book with her desperate attempts to eradicate the devastation of a repressed memory. She is real and vibrant and loving and sad.

Have you listened to any of Cassandra Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The tragedy of repression

Any additional comments?

Ann-Marie MacDonald is a brilliant writer who clearly understands the human psyche. She is a true story-teller keeping the reader bound to her characters, longing for their redemption. She delivers.

one wretched event after another.

A friend recommended this author so I had high hopes. After the first few heartbreaking events I kept thinking something positive has got to happen; this has to get better. But it doesn't. The story gets more interesting once Mercedes and Frances are born and their characters are more fully drawn than most every other character, but it is not enough. Not sure why I slogged through this whole thing, but I did. Kathleen 's diary near the end was the most interesting part. I am relieved to be finished with it.
