What can I say about “The Falling of Love” that hasn’t already been said? I’ve read both the original version and the revised version and I can say that even though the original was great, it only got better with the revisions and added scenes. There’s something so sweet and innocent about Grace and watching her grow throughout the book made me feel very close to the character, as if I knew her in real life. When she falls for the new kid in school, Ian Taylor, it reminded me so much of being in her position, falling for the bad boy musician. Most girls know this story and the author stays true to make it realistic.
The plot, however, takes a very sharp turn and the conflict almost slaps you across the face, yanking you out of your dream of the love between Grace and Ian. You wonder if they’re going to survive all the adversity, and sometimes you wonder if you even want them to survive it. Then the ending… can you say cliffhanger?! I knew it was a series going into it, but there is no way I can stop at book one, not with an ending like that! If you’re looking for a sweet romance that’s wrought with adversity and conflict, this is the story for you!
