Angel Falls: A Novel Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
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 Liam not to expect a recovery, but he believes that love can accomplish what medical science cannot. Daily he sits at Mikaela’s 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 that 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.
“A jewel . . . Hannah has executed her premise perfectly and plumbed its implications for every ounce of feeling.”—San Jose Mercury News
“Hannah writes of love with compassion and conviction.”—Luanne Rice
Kristin Hannah's talent for writing poignant tales of duty, passion, identity and family bonds made last year's On Mystic Lake a bestseller, and will certainly rake in the fans this time. (Imagine Danielle Steel without the Gucci bags or aging corporate CEOs.) While the majority of the novel has our heroine knocked out on a hospital gurney, Hannah makes valiant efforts to bring Mike's character to life, and Liam's enduring love should keep you rooting for him and reaching for the hanky. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien--This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
In the last several books she constantly describes things as velvet (velvet lake,voice, moon, skin, sky, day, blah, blah,
I find her overuse of this one word beyond annoying and a cop-out.
In the first chapter, she already used the same description twice. Therefore, I requested a refund and Angels Falls was deleted. I felt velvety. : )
I've pre-ordered her next book due out in February. The first time I encounter her overuse of the same
word, I'm going to request a refund.
Her proofreader should be fired. Perhaps, I should be hired.
I promise to have a more extensive vocabulary.
Sorry, Ms. Hannah. Someone had to tell you.
Otherwise, your stories are amazing.
While I've always loved Kristin Hannah's writing style I can't remember one of her books that touched me where I live and love.
Thank you for reminding me that I DO live the dream - the dream of growing old and watching our children raise children. Thank you for helping me remember that our white-hot first love isn't what got us through 50 years of marriage. The love that lasted that long is the bedrock of life and reading this book reminded me of how very blessed I am. Thank you.
"Angel Falls" lays open a family's struggle to trust and recognize the strength of their bonds when unexpected tragedy abruptly interrupts a seemingly ordinary day. Thus begins a marathon of what it means to love and be loved in a battle where the overwhelming power of obsession and past love come face to face with reality and secrets long held.
There are no real "bad guys" here, but as the characters pick their fragile (yet unbreakable) way through this touching and insightful story, you'll feel sympathy for those who realize too late the cost of failing to embrace love when it's offered purely and selflessly. The pain, regrets tenderness and triumphs felt honest, even if a little smoother than real life might dish out, and the good guy wins in the end-- and a family comes together. Make sure you have a little reading time set aside when you begin this book-- you won't want to put it down. I'm not a big romance reader, but I read this one straight through.
Good read, as always, from Kristin Hannah.
