Selected by Indie Booksellers for the August 2009 Indie Next List
“While I'm Falling is a gripping story of what happens to good people blind-sided by unforeseen circumstances of divorce and financial insecurity. Like the best writers of suspense, Laura Moriarty keeps the reader engaged with her vulnerable and heroic characters as she exquisitely mines the murky terrain of families and people in crisis and recovery.”
-- Sarah Bagby, Watermark Books, Wichita, KS


Description
Darkly humorous, compelling, and filled with crystalline observations, "While I'm Falling" takes a deep look at the relationship between a mother and a daughter as one is trying to grow up and the other is trying to stay afloat.
