An uplifting, contemporary tale of tragedy, love, and second chances, by Sara Downing.
On a summer night in London, art teacher Eve Chapman finds herself in a hospital emergency room. She watches surgeons desperately operate on a young woman with a terrible head injury. But when the bandages are removed, Eve is horrified to find her own body on the operating table.
Trapped in a coma, Eve struggles to cope with the fact that no matter how hard she tries, her family and friends cannot see or hear her. But then she meets Luca Diaz, a handsome and comatose lawyer who can see her. He takes Eve under his wing and teaches her how to use her new abilities to help the living.
As the weeks pass, Eve struggles to find a way back to her body and to Nathan, the man she loves. But the more time she spends with Luca, the more she wonders if her old life is worth going back to at all.
I haven’t read such an emotional and inspiring novel in a long time.
Readers are invited to suspend disbelief and experience amazing accounts of coma patients’ experiences in and beyond a hospital ward. The actions, thoughts and behaviours of an array of varied and well-drawn characters, and a tightly spun plot, raise thought-provoking questions on the meaning of life and death, the mind, body, and soul connection, as well as the power of goodness, and our search for love.
Reading I Let You Fall is an uplifting experience. It was like taking an emotional holiday and visiting a magical place where the boundaries between space and time, and life and death are blurred, good things happen to good people, and love will always find a way.
Whatever you believe, think you believe, or would like to believe about these existential themes, I Let You Fall will surprise and inspire you.
I almost forgot to mention that it’s set in London, and I really enjoyed revisiting the sights of the city where I was born and used to live.
