Waiting On [163]: Falling by Jane Green

Waiting on Wednesday [Wow] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Falling by Jane Green
Expected Publication: July 19, 2016
Publisher: Berkley

When Emma Montague left the strict confines of upper-crust British life for New York, she felt sure it would make her happy. Away from her parents and expectations, she felt liberated, throwing herself into Manhattan life replete with a high-paying job, a gorgeous apartment, and a string of successful boyfriends. But the cutthroat world of finance and relentless pursuit of more began to take its toll. This wasn’t the life she wanted either.

On the move again, Emma settles in the picturesque waterfront town of Westport, Connecticut, a world apart from both England and Manhattan. It is here that she begins to confront what it is she really wants from her life. With no job, and knowing only one person in town, she channels her passion for creating beautiful spaces into remaking the dilapidated cottage she rents from Dominic, a local handyman who lives next door with his six-year-old son.

Unlike any man Emma has ever known, Dominic is confident, grounded, and committed to being present for his son whose mother fled shortly after he was born. They become friends, and slowly much more, as Emma finds herself feeling at home in a way she never has before.

But just as they start to imagine a life together as a family, fate intervenes in the most shocking of ways. For the first time, Emma has to stay and fight for what she loves, for the truth she has discovered about herself or risk losing it all.

In a novel of changing seasons, shifting lives, and selfless love, a story unfolds—of one woman’s far-reaching journey to discover who she is truly meant to be.

Why I Can’t Wait
First off I love Jane Green and secondly I find these books on starting over so amazing. To be able to rediscover yourself and maybe even find love again is so great that it gives us hope that we can all be able to do that.

  6. LOLOL! I first read this as "John Green" and was reading the synopsis thinking "OMG I had no idea John Green was coming out with another book! WOW, what an interesting departure from his normal work. Huh.. he's really making a U-turn here..." Then I re-read the cover and saw that I'd made such a silly mistake. Heh.
