You MUST read Falling Under by Danielle Younge-Ullman

After growing up as the only child of bitterly divorced parents, Mara Foster has finally gained independence and is embarking on a promising career as an artist. But despite her success, she is fragile. Burdened by a host of fears and anxieties, Mara finds it difficult even to leave her house on most days. When Mara meets Hugo, the walls she has built around herself begin to crumble, and as she struggles to find a breakthrough both in her art and in life, she must come to terms with her own dark secrets in order to get a second chance at happiness.

I read Falling Under in one sitting. I stayed up all night, pruning in my bathtub, completely and utterly mesmerized by this amazing book.

I laughed, I cried, I rooted for Mara. I marveled at Danielle’s beautiful, disturbing, heartbreaking, deep and ultimately uplifting prose and how a first-time author could create such a complex character.

I met Danielle in person for the first time at the RWA conference in San Francisco, and like Jenny, I attended her very first signing. I have never heard such an amazing reading in all my life, I was moved to tears.

Read this wonderful book, and don’t miss an opportunity to hear Danielle read if she’s in your city. On both counts, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Also, in case you were wondering, Danielle is an excellent dancer.

  1. Everyone has their own reading habits and my taste is to savor a good book like a fine wine. Had I gulped down FALLING UNDER in one sitting, so much would have been missed. Whatever type of reader you are, though, pick up Danielle’s sensational debut and enjoy!

  2. Thanks Larramie!

    Hate to say it, I’m a fast reader. The good news is that I read a lot of books. The bad news is that I have a hard time making a great book last a little longer. 🙁

    I loved Danielle’s book, found myself bawling in the bathtub I was so moved by it.


  3. If Danielle was not anxiously awaiting a rapidly cooling bottle of Moet in our hotel room at the Marriott here in New York, and then scooting off to a writer’s conference event at the Algonquin, I’m sure she would chime in “Thanks for the great post!” However, unlike me, she would be much more witty and erudite.

  4. I am so glad I was there to witness Danielle’s Debut first signing, and the bookstore was so great. I’ve got the book and I think I’m going to crack it like a new box of chocolates and not stop till they are all gone. Suz

  5. Cheryl,

    Enjoy!! Thanks for the comment!


    Dear Oppressor,

    You’re quite the wit yourself. One thing I love about Danielle is that she’s always packing champagne. My kind of girl.




    Amazing reading, wasn’t it? I was blown away. Hope you love the book. Thanks for the great comment.
