Dilys Frank is adrift in her grief. A tough and capable young woman, recent circumstance has spilled the wind from her sails, and she now finds herself gambling away her nights and wasting her days behind the counter of an unlicensed pharmacy on Church Street one of many shady ventures run by her father.
When she is summoned to the house on Rose Park Avenue, she is drawn into something she had once considered a flight of fancy—a wild tale born of her father’s love of gin. Through a quaint architectural folly, the tower of the house on Rose Park holds the key to doors unimagined, and drawn through them, Dilys unwittingly finds herself on the streets of pre-Civil War Buffalo, where her wits and determination will help her redefine her purpose, affording her an opportunity for love and possibly even redemption.
Look for the fourth and final book in the Tower Room series: There is Something I Forgot to Tell You, coming soon.
In Falling, book two of The Tower Room Series, Leo Becker has only recently moved into the Rose Park mansion at the invitation of his cousin Dilys. He knows nothing, however, of the strange working of the Tower Room, but that is about to change.
A worthy follow-up to her 2015 debut, Falling whisks us back to the summer of 1813 and the brief American occupation of Queenston where it explores the events leading up to Laura Secord’s historic walk of June 21.
Continuing the adventure that Foreword Clarion Review said was a "genre-crossing historical adventure story with a time-travel twist," Falling takes readers back in time again but as the prequel to The Tree of Life.
