Amazon.com Review

Nestled into the hills of the Northern Cascade Mountains in Washington state, Liam and Mike (Michaela) Campbell have a picture-perfect marriage and family. While Liam enjoys the comforts of being a small-town doctor with an old family name, Mike cares for their two children and her beloved horses. But when a horrible accident leaves Mike in a coma, Liam frantically searches for a way to ignite her memories and awaken her. What he discovers makes him question the foundations of their love, as Mike has a secret past as "Kayla" and a previous marriage to her first love, Julian True. Though still in a coma, Mike responds to these stories. Liam knows he must contact Julian, and gamble his future on the past memories of a woman whose true identity and feelings are unknown to him.

Kristin Hannah's talent for writing poignant tales of duty, passion, identity and family bonds made last year's On Mystic Lake a bestseller, and will certainly rake in the fans this time. (Imagine Danielle Steel without the Gucci bags or aging corporate CEOs.) While the majority of the novel has our heroine knocked out on a hospital gurney, Hannah makes valiant efforts to bring Mike's character to life, and Liam's enduring love should keep you rooting for him and reaching for the hanky. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Set amid the splendor of Washington State's North Cascade mountain range, Hannah's latest (after On Mystic Lake) borrows elements from soap opera, the silver screen and fairy tales to make a simple statement about the complications of love. Dr. Liam Campbell is devastated when his beloved wife, Mikaela, mother of two, suffers a horse-jumping injury that leaves her in a coma. His confusion escalates when he learns the identity of Mikaela's first husband: world-famous movie star Julian True. The biggest shock: True's is the only name she responds to. Liam senses that his Sleeping Beauty needs love to wake her up, but whose? Given the depth of his feelings for her, will he be brave enough to summon True for help, and so risk losing Mikaela forever in order to save her life? Scenes reminiscent of Kramer vs. Kramer occur where Liam tries to be mom to their nine-year-old son; the suds world takes over when Mikaela finally wakes, but with retrograde amnesia, thinking she's still married to True and with no memory of Liam; and It's a Wonderful Life brings the curtain down. In keeping with the popular convention of giving voice to spirituality, the novel employs religious overtones, which will please some readers while leaving others feeling molested by an angel. Mikaela and Liam are sweet characters, even relentlessly good ones, so many will find them likable even as they float smoothly toward an easy conclusion. 125,000 first printing. (Apr.)

Format: Hardcover
In the Cascade Mountain range of northwest Washington state near Angel Lake, Mikaela and Liam Campbell raise their two children. While her nine-year-old son watches her, Mikaela falls while jumping with her horse, landing in a coma. Her loving spouse Liam and their two children (Bret and his older sister Jacey) worry that she will die. Desperate for something to do to help his wife, Liam continues to talk with Mikaela. To his chagrin and elation, Mikaela blinks at the name of her first spouse, movie legend Julian True.

Though he may lose her if she recovers, Liam asks Julian to come to their small town of Last Bend to try to heal Mikaela. When she awakens, she has no idea who her current spouse is or the identity of her youngest child. She cannot understand why she looks olds since sixteen years have disappeared from her life because she suffers from amnesia. When she regains her lost memory, will she love her current husband or her former spouse?

ANGEL FALLS is a fascinating relationship drama that centers on personal sacrifice. Readers will love Liam as he willingly risks losing the love of his life to someone else if it could restore her back to health. The children and Julian add to the drama through their relationships with the lead characters. Fans already consider Kristin Hannah to be on a par with the superstars like Delinsky and Roberts, but those few readers who had doubts will no longer have any after reading this novel.

Format: Hardcover
Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite romance novelists. She writes stories that can absolutlely tear at your soul. It seems that with her last two novels, though (Angel Falls and On Mystic Lake) she is trying to appeal to a more high brow audience. There is nothing wrong with aspirations, but it isn't where her talent lies. Suddenly she isn't writing great romance novels, and she isn't writing great contemporary fiction. These books are an "alright" example of both, but excel as neither. I guess the thing that this book missed the most was any real view of the relationship between Mike and Liam. She simply came to a realization about him (that she had seemed to accept years ago) thaty he was the better husband for her. It wasn't an unbelievable story (even with amnesia and movie stars) but it wasn't really striking and believable either. My suggestion would be to either read her earlier novels if looking for romance, or choose another author if looking for contemporary women's fiction. If you are a fan of the author, like I am, get this book from your local library.

Format: Hardcover
Some books are such light fare to be perfect for pool-side readers. "Angel Falls" by Kristin Hannah qualifies are an ideal summer read; not to deep or dark, it is optimistic, romantic and unabashedly sentimental. Its view of life, marriage and family is as idealistic (and naive) as a teenager's first summer love.
Liam and Mike (Michaela) Campbell, and their children Jacey and Brett, are blissfully enjoying their idyllic life in a Norman Rockwell town when Mike is injured in a riding accident and lapses into a coma. Left to fend for themselves, her husband and children learn to get through days without her, while at the same time discovering that they hardly knew her, when secrets of her past (a first marriage and Hollywood lifestyle) begin to surface. As the darkness of her sleep begins to lift, she remains shrouded in the shadows of her past, but her deceptions have wounded and confused her family, particularly when the subject of her betrayal suddenly appears to assist in her convalescence. Can Mike awaken her own heart and help her family move beyond the specter of her past?
If this description sounds similar to a storyline in a soap opera, then it is being interpreted correctly. "Angel Falls" is that predictable and syrupy. But reading it is not an unpleasant way to wile away some summer hours, as it is a mellow story with warmth and fuzzy feelings. While not quite a "romance novel", its idealization of love (a.k.a. "true love") and marriage have all the requisite dramatic elements for the genre.
I expect that fans of Nicholas Sparks ("The Notebook" and "A Walk to Remember") will migrate to this book, particularly those who liked Sparks' drab "Message in a Bottle".

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Marguerite P. Nico on October 14, 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In a mythical small town in Washington State, Dr. Liam Campbell and Mikaela (Mike) have a life together with their two children and their horses.
Their life appears to be a classic fairy tale until tragedy strikes. While exercising a horse, Mikaela is thrown and hits her head, putting her into a coma. The lengths Liam goes to in order to help her recover are incredible.
As he attempts to maintain some semblance of normalcy, and while looking for a dress for his teenaged daughter to wear to her Prom, Liam finds evidence of Mikaela's former life. Although he knew she had been married before, he was not prepared to find that she had been married to one of the most famous movie stars in the world: Julian True.
Just the mention of Julian's name elicits a response from Mikaela while she is in the coma, so Liam makes a decision to call him and see if he can come up to Washington to help revive her. What follows next is a testimony to the depths of a man's love for a woman. Angel Falls is written from a man's point of view and delves into how someone copes with life threatening injury to a loved one.
This book is well written. Each of the characters is believable, including the main characters, Mikaela and Liam. You truly feel that you are in their lives, watching all that goes on. You feel Liam's pain as he discovers that his wife of 10 years was in love with another man. You are hoping, as the book progresses, that Liam and Mikaela will remain together and "live happily every after."
I rate this at 4 stars.
