Angel falls: A Novel
Angel Falls is a dramatic, richly nuanced story of an ordinary man who makes an extraordinary decision and gambles with a thorny, painful question.
Michaela, beloved wife and mother of two, lies in a coma. It is now up to her husband, Liam, to hold the family together, to care for their grieving, frightened children. Doctors have told Liam not to expect a recovery, but he maintains hope that love can accomplish what medicine cannot. Day after day, he sits by her bedside, holding her hand, sharing the stories of their life together. Then he discovers the evidence of his wife's secret past--a long-hidden first marriage to international movie star Julian True. When he sees photos of her glowing happiness with Julian, he knows the actor was more than simply Michaela's first husband. He was the love of her life. Liam senses that Julian is the one person who can bring her back to life, but at what cost? And does Liam love his wife enough to risk losing her to a man no woman could resist?
His decision strikes deep into the heart of his family, transforming each of them in unexpected ways.

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?
