EBOOK Û The Falling Woman ä Richard Farrell

EBOOK Û The Falling Woman ä Richard Farrell Ht to keep secret the story of her survival even from her own family and possibly at risk to his own career The Falling Woman is a novel that asks compelling and controversial uestions about the value of life and what should be sacrificed in the name of lo Hiding is a way of holding ourselves until we are ready to come into the lightOn a stormy night in May a plane took off from Dulles bound for California The Boeing 737 carrying 123 passengers and crew inexplicably exploded and everything rained down on the Kansas prairie outside of Wichita The NTSB mobilized its investigators who headed to the site in an attempt to figure out what happened and why Investigating a crash is one part archeology one part guesswork and one part origami But this wasn't a story about the methods of that agency The most startling aspect of this terrible disaster was that there was rumor of a survivor This wasn't really a story about her either after all The narrative shifts between the viewpoints of Erin Geraghty wife mother lawyer cancer patient and Charlie Radford a member of the NTSB GO Team The information about the procedures of the Pointer 795 crash investigation is very interesting The plausibility and believability of a person defying the laws of physics to survive such an event even so But at the heart of this tale is the uestion what rights do people have to privacy and the choice about self determination This book begs to be chosen for book club discussion and I've enjoyed reading all the other reviews Although I likely would not have made the same choices as either of the main characters I respect their ability to do so The reality is that we often don't have the ability to control our own narratives especially if the public is clamoring for explanations reasons or answers I could not put this down until I finished it in a single sitting Very thought provoking and I think I'll remember this one for a long timeThank you to NetGalley and Algonuin Books for this e book ARC to read review and recommend
