It has been fifteen months since Eva and Angela lost their thrill-seeking husbands in a scuba diving accident. Both women are trying to navigate their way through the grief, but neither one is making much progress. Angela is barely making ends meet, angry at her husband for leaving her to raise three children on her own. Meanwhile, Eva is stuck, unable to move forward after losing the love of her life and her source of inspiration.
But then Eva gets a life-changing phone call. Before Brent and Wes died, they had signed up for a race of a lifetime—an ultra-marathon in beautiful New Zealand. Eva begs Angela to run the race with her in their husbands’ place, and Angela finally agrees, hoping to finally understand her husband’s choices.
Training is exhausting, and the race is even more demanding. Their journey grows more complicated by the presence of two men—Marc is Brent’s best friend who is running the race with Eva and Angela, and Simon King is a writer who is covering their inspiring story. With every step, Eva and Angela must ask themselves questions that they haven’t had the courage to ask before. As the women literally put one foot in front of the other, they wonder: Is it possible to find their way forward in hope?

I adored Lindsay Harrel’s newest release, The Joy of Falling. It is by far my favorite I have read by her to date. It is so very good. The characters, Eva and Angela, are realistic that made me feel as though I was part of the story. It was great watching how they grew throughout the book. They went through so much and they deserved to learn so much about themselves and the life lessons we should all learn out. I loved the story of overcoming grief, having faith and continuing hope.
I am giving The Joy of Falling a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy a clean and inspiring read. It is most definitely not one to miss. I can not wait to find out what the next release by Lindsay Harrel will be about in the future. I look forward to it.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
