Throwback Thursday meme was hosted by Renee@It’s Book Talk and is a way to share some of your old favorites as well as sharing books that you’re FINALLY getting around to reading that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on your TBR list while you continue to pile more titles on top of them ! These older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board.
This week I’m picking a book I read a few years ago and loved!
Oh how I loved ANGEL FALLS! For a debut, this story was intense! I can’t believe I waited so long to read it as it was published in 2000 and I have been a fan of Kristin Hannah for many many years! Another heart tugging, tearful book by one of my favorite authors and I loved every minute of it! I loved the characters and at times even felt sorry for Julian. Liam was my best character – he was greater than life itself – when the life of his wife Mikaela was at stake. This is not a gushy romance story, rather it is a moving tale of a family struggling to get through the most challenging time of their lives.
ANGEL FALLS is the story of Mikaela Campbell. She’s a wife and mother and ends up in a coma after an accident. While she’s in the coma, her family does everything to try to wake her up, but nothing works until her husband Liam discovers the identity of her first husband, a famous Hollywood actor, Julian True. It’s his name that Mikaela responds too and as a result, Liam contacts Julian in the hopes that he can bring her out of the coma. And he does, but with heartbreaking consequences. I was completely invested in certain characters – I just had to know what happened. Let me tell you, my heart hurt for them.
ANGEL FALLS by Kristin Hannah pulled me right in as all of Kristin’s books do. The mystery through out had me flipping the pages like a mad woman at some points. Once I started reading ANGEL FALLS it was very hard to stop. The twists and turns kept me reading late into the night. I love when an author can do that to me! Kristin Hannah does a super job of making you feel the emotions the characters are experiencing, at familiarizing you to the settings and the motivations of the story and just simply making you FEEL. Whether it be sadness, anger, love or disgust you get to crawl into some of the characters lives and see the story through their perspective.
When Mikaela Campbell, beloved wife and mother, falls into a coma, it is up to her husband, Liam, to hold the family together and care for their grieving, frightened children. Doctors tell him not to expect a recovery, but he believes that love can accomplish what medical science cannot. Daily he sits at her bedside, telling her stories of the precious life they have built together, hoping against hope that she will wake up. But then he discovers evidence of his wife’s secret past: a hidden first marriage to movie star Julian True.
Desperate to bring Mikaela back at any cost, Liam knows he must turn to Julian for help. But will that choice cost Liam his wife, his family, and everything he holds dear? One of Kristin Hannah’s most moving novels, Angel Falls is a poignant and unforgettable portrait of marriage and commitment, of an ordinary man who dares to risk everything in the name of love.
