Set on stormy Cape Breton Island off Nova Scotia, Fall on Your Knees is an internationally acclaimed muligenerational saga that chronicles the lives of four unforgettable sisters. Theirs is a world filled with driving ambition, inescapable family bonds, and forbidden love.
Compellingly written, by turns menacingly dark and hilariously funny, this is a tale of five generations of sin, guilt, and redemption.
"MacDonald is a talented storyteller with a crisp yet lilting prose style." ( Booklist)
"Ms. MacDonald skillfully shifts the story backward and forward in time, giving it a mythic quality that allows dark, half-buried secrets to be gracefully and chillingly revealed." ( The New York Times Book Review)
"Beautiful....this big, bold, epic shocker of a novel reads as if John Irving met Joyce Carol Oates in her Gothic period....It's a wild ride." ( Chicago Tribune)
