"Romance. Recklessness. And Stolen Masterpieces. Novelist Amanda Holmes gives

us a Jamesian heroine transported to 1970s Boston. Ruby Lambert is spirited and

artistic, a determined dreamer convinced of her ability to heal Angus, her charming

and utterly unreliable first love. Capturing an historic moment tinged with optimism

and rendered in prose that is crisp, insightful and unsentimental,

I Know Where I Am When I'm Falling is a wonderful, compelling story. A must read."

Elizabeth Geoghegan author of Eightball


"When do we give up on the ones we love; when do we say enough?

This is a story of a young woman's struggle with those questions, and her

ultimate realization that it's time to let go."
