Since We Fell

Finished Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane. I received a copy for review. 

After an on-air breakdown, Rachel withdraws from life. In fairly short order, she loses her job and her husband. And then she meets (or, rather, re-meets) Brian. And he is smart and charming and incredibly sweet. They fall in love and marry and their life together is perfect…until she starts to suspect that he’s not who he says he is. 

Dennis Lehane’s books are amazing, and so it’s no suprise that this one will keep you guessing. If you can figure out every single place this book is going, you’re smarter than I am. 

It starts as a straight bio of Rachel; it’s very hard not to feel for her. Her childhood is not great and then she falls from grace so hard that it’s beyond heartbreaking. Her demons follow her everywhere and then Brian shows up and believes in her and helps her heal. The realization that he can’t necessarily be trusted is wrenching. And yet it gives her her own strength back, now that she can’t borrow his. 

I don’t want to say more but trust me—you need this. Highly recommended.
