Fall on Your Knees

I’m glad I’ve finished up this one by Ann-Marie MacDonald….while her writing is eloquent and she has such a gift for detail, this ‘read’ was a sad one.  A story of a family in Cape Breton…their struggles with boundaries/connection and culture.  I’d recommend this one for its literary genius, but if you’re looking for a ‘light read’, this wouldn’t be it!
The Piper family is steeped in secrets, lies, and unspoken truths. At the eye of the storm is one secret that threatens to shake their lives — even destroy them.

Set on stormy Cape Breton Island off Nova Scotia, Fall on Your Knees is an internationally acclaimed multigenerational saga that chronicles the lives of four unforgettable sisters. Theirs is a world filled with driving ambition, inescapable family bonds, and forbidden love.

Compellingly written, by turns menacingly dark and hilariously funny, this is an epic tale of five generations of sin, guilt, and redemption ."
