From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Four Winds, Angel Falls is “a tearjerker . . . about the triumphs of family” (Detroit Free Press).

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 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.

    Haunting and unforgettable. I was caught up in history and the amazing love story between Anya and Sasha. Could not put it down. Loved The Nightingale. Loved this one just as much.

    This book grabs you from the beginning & holds on all the way through. Even after the last pages, it’s hard to let go of this family.
  • Unreadable

    I am a big fan of the author having read three of her books. I could not make it more than 1/4 way through this one. The husband’s coma vigil quickly wears thin with little else to move the story along. Eventually I stopped reading because I didn’t care if his wife woke up. When the story evokes that kind of reaction in me it’s time to stop reading. And who names their kid Bretster? I choked every time I read the name. Sorry. Not for me.

    Hannah is one of my favorite authors, and I was surprised to find a book I had not read. Most of the characters were believable and the plot was engaging with a valuable lesson to contemplate. It especially spoke to me as I had had a similar experience with a first love. The book got 4 stars rather than the usual 5 because of the Rosa character. Addressing her son-in-law as " Dr. Liam" is ludicrous, plus there is no way they would have allowed her to live in apparent poverty, working two jobs, no matter how insistent she was to be independent. So, that was a distraction, but I loved the book anyway.
