Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a woman on the brink, who worries that her marriage is not what it seems.
After a scarring reporting assignment and a painful public breakdown, Rachel Childs retreated from the world, only leaving the house to drink alone at neighborhood dive bars. When she meets Brian, a raffish businessman who sees past her intense neuroses and pushes her back to her former self, she finds happiness. But that is threatened when Rachel sees something she shouldn’t?or thinks she does. She’s quickly pulled into a plot that will test the limits of her damaged psyche and force her to find strength she never knew she had.
Since We Fell is about how the madness of the world at large can impact our most intimate relationships. It’s a race into a conspiracy thick with deception and violence. It’s about finding strength within oneself to conquer unimaginable fears. It’s a heartbreaking, suspenseful, romantic, sophisticated novel of profound psychological insight. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.
