Beautifully written I Know Where I am When I’m Falling is a novel about growing up, family ties, friendships, mysterious art theft. But most of all it’s a story of unconditional, forgiving and all-consuming love. Young and idealistic Ruby falls in love with Angus, intelligent and charismatic but an ultimate rebel and a bad boy. And even though Angus loves Ruby with every fiber of his being he can’t fight his nature, despite all of Ruby’s attempts to help him live up to his potential. Do we and when do we give up on the ones we love; when do we say enough? This is a story of young woman's struggle with those questions and her ultimate realization that it’s time to let go. “So, feelings weren’t bottomless, after all. You could actually use them up, in spite of their intensity. I had finally flat lined.”

This is a read in one sitting book you wont be able to put down. Its 2017.

Kathy is 40, about to get married, obsessed with the daily news and worried about everything going on in the world. She is a loner who learns how to love.

Shocking and unsettling, My Absolute Darling is at times difficult to read, the novel follows fourteen-year-old Turtle Alveston, who feels more at home in nature than she does with her survivalist and damaged father, as she searches for freedom and fights for her soul. Roaming the woods one night, wondering if her father would be able to find her, she meets two lost teenage boys and guides them safely out. And that is the moment she starts questioning her home life. The way Tallent brings you steadily into Turtle’s mind makes you almost feel her pain. He manages to capture her deepest thoughts, her internal struggle, her will to survive. She is the kind of girl, brave and determined, with whom readers are almost duty-bound to fall in love.
