I don't know anything about the Mormon religion or polygamy, but I found the background of the characters and the setting interesting. I liked all the characters, and realized that this is how the women were raised and they didn't really know any different. That turning a blind eye, believing what the men them, is their way of life and the belief they hold dear. I enjoyed this book so much. It is one of my favorites of the year to far. The ending leaves the reader wondering what Clara decides to do and perfectly segues into the next installment. Thank you NetGalley, Bookouture and Kathryn Casey!
Some of my favorite quotes:
“For the first time in a very long time, I wasn’t an outsider, but someone remembered: I was their teacher, their sister.”
“What this trip has taught me is that you can leave home, but you can’t ever truly leave it behind. No matter where you end up, where you started haunts you. And the people you love? You carry them with you, whether you realize it or not.”
“Perhaps it was more a testament to my journey, and that the pain and disappointments of my past had made me stronger.”
“Despite all we had been through together, despite all I’d done, the distance between me and my mothers persisted, a canyon that separated me from those who were mine.”
“I gave her a last hard look and considered the beauty of a woman content in her world, someone who understood where she belonged. That would never be me. For the rest of my life, I would be an outsider.”
It’s no secret I’m a huge Kathryn Casey fan but that’s because every single one of her books knocks it out of the park. “Fallen Girls” is her latest home run.
This book got me hooked on page one! I couldn't put it down! It is a great read, fast moving, and exciting. It even throws in a look at a world most of us know very little about.
I am glad this appears to be a series as I am anxious to learn more about what happens to Clara Jefferies. She could be taken in many different directions and I am certain Kathryn Casey will continue to lead us down more twisting, thought provoking, captivating paths. I cannot wait!

Clara is shunned by the local community she grew up in, a polygamous community because she turned her back.
Many secrets and lies, and the tale is woven well and told with just the right amount of revealing.
This is the first book I have read written by this author, but it definitely will not be the last. It was fabulous!
I rarely give 5 stars, but this book deserves every one of them.
Would make a great 2 part TV thriller!
