The Art of Falling
The Art of Falling | Danielle McLaughlin
5 posts | 3 read | 5 to read
At the former home of the sculptor Robert Locke, Nessa, a gallery employee, is struggling to manage Eleanor and Loretta Locke, the sculptor's widow and middle-aged daughter. Meanwhile, her marriage is floundering in the aftermath of her husband's affair, and she's becoming increasingly alienated from her teenage daughter. At this worst possible time, her past resurfaces in the form of Caroline Ferriter, a woman she once shared a flat with in London. Caroline is in contact with the son of their long-dead flatmate, Amy, who killed herself at the age of 24. Luke, Amy's son, is coming to Ireland in an attempt to understand something of the person his mother was. At the last minute, Paul, Luke's father, whom Nessa was once briefly involved with, invites himself along too. Things become only more complicated once the two men arrive in Ireland and when an American woman, Melanie, comes forward to claim that she, and not Eleanor, was Locke's muse for his best known piece, the Chalk Sculpture, things really start to spiral out of control.

Such a gorgeous cover! Im not sure what I expected from this book but it turned into a little gem. Set in Cork, Nessa and Philip are holding their marriage together when her professional life begins to intersect with her past. Loved the back story of the Chalk Sculpture and all it was intended to be. The narration, by Tara Flynn, also really helped draw me into the story.

Mehso-so

This debut provides a propelling plot. But, the characters were universally unlikeable and I found myself untethered, not really rooting for any of them. #ARC #netgalley

Cathythoughts Oh dear ! Sounds so good ... what‘s the writing like , literary ? 2y
Well-ReadNeck @Cathythoughts not as dialogue driven as mystery/women‘s lit implies, but I wouldn‘t say literary. Contemporary fiction, maybe 2y
