Description

When Mikaela Campbell, beloved wife and mother, falls into a coma, it is up to her husband, Liam, to hold the family together and care for their grieving, frightened children. Doctors tell Liam not to expect a recovery, but he believes that love can accomplish what medical science cannot. Daily he sits at Mikaela’s bedside, telling her stories of the precious life they have built together, hoping against hope that she will wake up. But then he discovers evidence of his wife’s secret past: a hidden first marriage to movie star Julian True.
 
Desperate to bring Mikaela back at any cost, Liam knows that he must turn to Julian for help. But will that choice cost Liam his wife, his family, and everything he holds dear? One of Kristin Hannah’s most moving novels, Angel Falls is a poignant and unforgettable portrait of marriage and commitment, of an ordinary man who dares to risk everything in the name of love.

    Hannah is one of my favorite authors, and I was surprised to find a book I had not read. Most of the characters were believable and the plot was engaging with a valuable lesson to contemplate. It especially spoke to me as I had had a similar experience with a first love. The book got 4 stars rather than the usual 5 because of the Rosa character. Addressing her son-in-law as " Dr. Liam" is ludicrous, plus there is no way they would have allowed her to live in apparent poverty, working two jobs, no matter how insistent she was to be independent. So, that was a distraction, but I loved the book anyway.
  • Good book!

    I love the book and how the story is written however the Spanish was awful! If an author is gonna write in another language, can't he/she make sure that is translated or written the right way? It is not the first time I see this and it just kills me!!!!!!
  • Wonderful Read
