Rebecca Coleman's Heaven Should Fall

My friend and fellow writer, Rebecca Coleman, is celebrating the publication of her newest novel for Mira today.

Coleman's (The Kingdom of Childhood, etc.) fourth novel is a multi-character study, and if there is but one description phrase to be offered as a summation, the Olmsteads are a family spinning down through the Tolstoyan aphorism, obliviously intent on becoming truly unhappy in their own way. 

As the family's despair, frustration, and anger are reflected off the patient and open-hearted Jill, the thoughtful reader begins to delve into the mystery that is Cade, the most fascinating, most puzzling, most memorable of the Olmsteads.

Watch for a longer review published October 19th, 2012 at The Internet Review of Books.
