In the midst of a chaotic midnight assembly, Sunshine is forced out into the darkness. Holding a scrap of paper scrawled with a stranger’s name and address, Sunny grasps the hands of her three small children and begins her escape.
Liesel Albright has dreamed of starting a family. She never bargained on inheriting one already in progress…or one so deeply damaged. When nineteen-year-old Sunshine appears on the Albright’s doorstep claiming Liesel’s husband Chris is her father, all they can think to offer is temporary shelter. The next day, they’re stunned by the news that the Family of Superior Bliss, led by a charismatic zealot, has committed mass suicide. Sunny and her children haven’t just left the compound–they’ve been left behind. Now, instead of a baby of her own, Liesel must play mother to the four survivors while Chris retreats into guilt and denial. For Sunny, however, a lifetime of teachings is not easily unlearned. No matter how hard she tries to forget, an ominous catechism echoes in her mind, urging her to finish what the Family started.
How incredibly gorgeous is that cover?
It is no secret that I love Megan Hart's writing. That Dirty is one of my most favourite books. She writes mostly romance/erotic fiction, however, it is tastefully done, and it doesn't feel raunchy. I love her style of writing and her character and plot build up. Her books make me happy.
This year Hart ventured into what she termed "mainstream contemporary fiction" with her novel Precious and Fragile Things. I received the opportunity to read PAFT before release day and I loved it. Everything that I appreciate in Megan's writing could be found in PAFT. The plot, the characters, the dialogue. It was great. To read my thoughts go here.
So I am very excited to see that Megan is again coming out with another contemporary novel-All Fall Down- and this one sounds even more intriguing then PAFT. All Fall Down is set to be released in early 2010 (exact date has yet to be determined). I know I'll be first in line to buy it.
Happy Reading Everyone!
