    1 thought on “The Art Of Falling

    1. I can't understand why other readers have given this such bad ratings. It's a really lovely book about a daughter's search for her father in Italy, and what the war had to do with his disappearance. The writing is beautiful and the storylines are very cleverly interwoven. Highly recommended.

    2. I like fun romantic books. I also like a little taste of history with a dash of travel. This book has all of that. Pick it up!

    3. A pleasantly distracting, airplane-read type of book -- a historical romantic fiction that was well-written enough that I wanted to keep reading, but was basically forgotten once I closed the cover.

    4. Loved reading this book, although you could see the twist you didn't know if it would be revealed to the people within the story which is unique, so read to find out that and if there is a happiness to unfinished business

    5. I was glad of the synopsis on the back cover of this novel, which helped to get the varying time-lines of the plot into some order in my head. It is very easy to get lost, or to forget how old people are at any given time in this story of past and present, in which a daughter follows the trail of her long lost father through Italy. The writing is confident, full of detail about the history and geography of Italy, and I got a real sense of the Mediterranean within its pages. The story is told rat [...]

    6. Great summer read! As always, Deborah Lawrenson delivers in spades with her gorgeous place descriptions this book reminded me very much of a trip my mother and I took to Italy - the tiny towns, the village folks, the closeness of families which sometimes leads to strained relationships And, as always, when I finished the book, I wished it was longer. Ms. Lawrenson has the distinct talent of writing stories like sunsets or sunrises you get so caught up in the soft beauty of the story you don't ev [...]

    7. This was a book that had potential of being fantastic. I loved the imagery and descriptions of the different places in Italy. I had to pretty much force myself to finish it, however. I didn't care much for reading the parts about Tom's daughter she annoyed me. The ending of the book felt thrown together. Finding out what happened to Tom felt very anti-climatic. Overall the book was just okay for me. There's really nothing about it that makes me want to re-read it, or even really remember much of [...]

    8. For the first time, I am giving five stars for story content alone else. From the waning years of WWII and the aftermath of its effects on Italy, the story spoke to meybe it was the fact that my father was an American soldier in 1944-1945 and in that area of the worldybe it was Italians 'shoulding up' during a time of war and devastationybe it was the budding romance between a young Tommy and his girlor his daughter's later search for her fatherI no longer know. The story was full, complete and [...]

    9. I enjoyed this story of separation and misunderstanding. The author painted an excellent word-portrait of Italy but I felt she was guilty of over-writing. A simpler style would have improved it, I think.

    10. This is my favourite of Deborah Lawrenson's books. Again and again, it draws me and I have read it three or four times.The time, the setting and the love of two people who lose touch make it both poignant and romantic.

    11. I really enjoyed this book. It's a compelling story that made me want to sit up and read jsut one more chapter. It has all the atmosphere of Italy and a moving story.

    12. Although I enjoyed this book, I felt as though I had read it before, perhaps I have read too many of this genre. If you enjoy interwoven stories from different era's, then I recommend this.
