This is Falling (Falling #1) by Ginger Scott is a story of hope.
First, I had to remember how to breathe. Then, I had to learn how to survive. Two years, three months and sixteen days had passed since I was the Rowe Stanton from before, since tragedy stole my youth and my heart went along with it.
When I left for college, I put a thousand miles between my future and my past. I’d made a choice—I was going to cross back to the other side, to live with the living. I just didn’t know how.
And then I met Nate Preeter.
An All-American baseball player, Nate wasn’t supposed to notice a ghost-of-a-girl like me. But he did. He shouldn’t want to know my name. But he did. And when he learned my secret and saw the scars it left behind, he was supposed to run. But he didn’t.
My heart was dead, and I was never supposed to belong to anyone. But Nate Preeter had me feeling, and he made me want to be his. He showed me everything I was missing.
And then he showed me how to fall.
*This is a standalone in a three-part series that will focus on different characters. Each book can be read on its own.
This is Falling is an incredibly heart-warming love story about two young people who just seemed to fit. Now, it wasn't so easy -the heroine had a lot to work through- but you just knew they were right for one another. It was refreshing that they weren't overly emotional while still the author kept it real.
Ginger Scott's direct writing style appeals to me (I've read everything she'd written), particularly her deep character development that gives readers the feeling of really knowing her characters. I felt every pain, every joy and each uncertainty Rowe experienced while I laughed at the interactions of Nate and Rowe and also his brother, Ty. Each of the four primary characters captured my heart.
The story was one of hope, and while I enjoyed it immensely, I see This Is Falling as a wonderful read for a young woman just stepping out on her own. The message of strength and healing is powerful.
