Review of Falling in Love
Falling in Love by
5 of 5 stars
Review of Falling in Love by Stephen Bradlee
5 Stars is not sufficient to rate a book which rips at the
heartstrings, breaks the reader’s heart over and over, and
yet-despite witnessing the protagonist hit bottom so many
times-leaves us with hope that yes, there can be good come
out of wrong, that there may be joy in the morning, that
just maybe there is hope in each of our lives if we will but
persevere to find it.
This book will make you weep till you think you can weep no
more, but it will also make you marvel at the strength of
the protagonist. I’m speaking not of physical strength,
oftentimes not even of Will, but of the innate character
deep inside-perhaps the soul-which knows life can be better
and wants to reach that new life, despite the constant
tearing away at her resolve, both external and internal.
“Falling in Love” is the story of Sherry’s struggle to
overcome: her past, her present; her addictions; her early
abuse, her acting out; her push-away, pull-toward
relationships; her inability to get past the first day or so
in a relationship. Some readers might denigrate Sherry
because of her acts-I applaud the internal strength that
keeps her motivated to change.
I rate this 18+ for both language and situations, but I
highly recommend it and hope it finds a wide readership. I
was so strongly affected by reading it that I had to sleep
on it before I could write my review.
I based my review on an e-book copy provided by the author,
Stephen Bradlee, to me via his request, on August 28, 2012,
in exchange for my fair and impartial review.
