A Rugged western, a ranch hand and a traumatized boy connected by an unexpected bond, a grieving assistant principal and her daughter and the violence that connects them all
Fall Back Down When I Die by Joe Wilkins is a western like story that captures the rugged and beautiful setting in Bull Mountains in eastern Montana and the conflicts that tie the people of the town together.
The story starts off slow as we get to know our main characters here through their different POV. Each with their own conflicts that connect them together and to the land around them. I was quickly drawn into the bond between the characters that won my heart right from the start. The story slowly unfolds until chaos erupts and violence threatens to tear them apart. The pace picks up and felt a bit rushed for me and I would of like to have seen more time spend on this part of the story. Despite this, in the end, it all came together well for me allowing me to feel those emotions I love to feel from an emotionally layered story. I highly recommend!
Thank you to Little, Brown and Company and Hachette Canada for my copy to read and review.
