Ricki Wilsonabout this book: In a time when the country seems to be licking its wounds and chanting "poor me," Maggie McClellan reminds us that getting our hands dirty and scratching out a place for ourselves is far more empowering than falling in line.
Maggie McClellan is living the good life in the best of two worlds, her corporate profession as a PR director for a world renowned boot maker, and her frequent escapes to the serenity of the West Texas ranch where she was raised – until her parents are killed in a car wreck. Selling the ranch seems the obvious choice, but when Maggie learns that she is pregnant, she can't imagine raising her child anywhere but on the M- (M Bar) Ranch.
In the ten years since leaving El Paso and moving home, Maggie has pulled the ranch out of debt, devised a scheme to keep it afloat, and made a home for herself, Martha and Jonah, the housekeeper and ranch foreman who stayed with her, and T.J., her beautiful son, her reason to keep up the struggle. Everything seems to be falling into place, but Maggie has overlooked one small detail, a major portion of the ranch is leased, and the lease has run out. Maggie can run the surveyors off her land with the aid of her mother's old rifle, but she can't stop the anonymous buyer from taking her land out from under her.
Overwhelmed by the crushing realization that she stands to lose everything she's worked for, everything her parents worked for, Maggie flouts her own rules and takes a young horse out for a solitary ride. A nearly fatal accident leaves her trapped and alone. Before Maggie can resurface from the darkness that swallows her up, she will have to realize what is really worth fighting for.
Maggie's Fall is a character driven story of perseverance and hope. A well-rounded supporting cast provide their fair share of love, despair, humor, and frailty, but the story, like the fight, is Maggie's.
