Don’t Miss This Beautifully Written Love Story!
Falling is a beautifully written poignant love story. Can two people really fall and stay in love, if they are from two completely different worlds?
Emma left England to take a fast-paced, high-paying job in America. After five years though of living and working in NYC, Emma was ready to slow down. She decided to move to Westport Connecticut. Although the cottage Emma rented was drastically outdated and needed renovating, she wasn’t worried. Emma loved interior decorating and couldn’t wait to get started beautifying her new home.
Emma and her landlord, Dominic, were from completely different worlds and at first she wasn’t attracted to him. Sure, he was handsome and charming, but blue-collar workers were not her type. And Emma definitely didn’t need the complication of him being her landlord. Emma was used to being wined and dined by wealthy men, not bartenders, and carpenters. But, Dominic’s integrity and kindness won Emma over. She also fell in love with Jesse, his son.
Struggles arose though when Emma’s upper-crust British parents met Dominic. And then again when Emma met Dominic’s loud and abusive parents. But, when Jesse’s mom showed up on the scene after deserting Jesse as an infant, Emma’s insecurities rose to a whole new level.
Emma hated choosing between her parents, and the man whom they felt was beneath her. Her father liked Dominic but didn’t feel as if he would ever measure up to the family’s standards, and Emma’s mother treated Dominic as the help.
Emma had some hard decisions to make, but in the end, she discovered what was truly important to her. Life was filled with hurts and hardships, and Emma learned that acceptance and choosing happiness every day were the best possible avenues that she could take.
This a superbly written, emotionally charged love story. I loved it.
