Ready to Fall is a laugh-out-loud look at marriage and mid-life, written in e-mail format. Weary of devoting herself entirely to her self-absorbed family, with no one focusing on her, Beth Riordan takes to her computer and pursues forbidden love via cyberspace. Best-selling author Elizabeth Berg (Until the Real Thing Comes Along, What We Keep) praises its popular appeal -- "intelligence, humor, poignancy, true originality" -- and judges it "ready to soar". Women everywhere will empathize, or at least chuckle in recognition. It reminds us of Bridge Works' discovery of Patty Jane's House of Curl, Lorna Landvik's runaway-success first novel.
