Since We Fell: A Novel
Rachel Childs has lived a sheltered existence. Her mother, Elizabeth, is a well-known author who maintains a domineering hold over her only child. Rachel’s father was a brief shining presence until he left one day. Rachel’s queries into her father’s identity are met with silence, derision, and more questions by her mother. Once Elizabeth is gone, Rachel seeks the truth, but it only leads to confusion and panic attacks for Rachel. She meets the man who she thought of as her father but discovers, once again, that what she thought she knew is questionable. What do we ever really know, even when it may be right in front of us? This pattern continues as she falls in love with a man who she met in the initial quest to find her father. His name is Brian, and he appears in scattered moments, but he leaves an impression. Rachel and Brian marry, but Rachel’s panic deepens. Is Brian the source of comfort or concern? Can Rachel overcome the unknown to be happy?
