Reviews of ‘The Year of Falling’

Nice review in the Herald today from David Hill: “The crisp, crackly prose kicks things along.”  You can click here if you’d like to read it.

And another good one from Siobhan Harvey in the Dominion Post: “Richly peopled and companioned by an absorbing plot, Janis Freegard’s The Year of Falling is a superb first foray into novel writing.”

Must be my lucky day!





Here’s a link to the first review of The Year of Falling, from publishing student Emma Bryson. Emma says: “Quirky, funny and inspiringly touching, Freegard has a knack for writing scenes which are painfully human. I watched as Selina’s life start to drift away from her, and screamed in frustration as she ‘reasoned’ her way into further trouble. And I became a silent observer (albeit slightly tearful) as the stoic Smith dealt with the heart-breaking complexities of losing a friend, raising a child, and caring for a sister.”
