Book Review: “When Trees Fall,” by Dale Mahfood

By Maxwanette A Poetess aka Maxine A. Moncrieffe

I was able to read this novel before it went to print. I found it intriguingly interesting from the beginning, that I actually purchased my own copy, to have in my collection.

I didn’t read this novel expecting it to be factual, it is fiction. What I did seek, was not only a good read, but a great story. When Trees Fall, is it.

The detailed descriptions of time, things, places, & people, were so relatable, that I felt I was sitting right in the middle of it. When Trees Fall, not only grabs your attention, it has you taking sides and emotionally invested in the characters. The author’s ability to create such vivid and realistic characters is truly commendable.

The plot of When Trees Fall is unique and captivating. It follows the journey of a young woman named Emma, who finds herself caught in a web of secrets and lies. As the story unfolds, we are taken on a rollercoaster ride of suspense and mystery. The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat, eagerly turning the pages to uncover the truth.

What sets this novel apart is the underlying theme of resilience and the power of human connection. Emma’s character development is beautifully portrayed, as she navigates through difficult situations and learns to trust herself and others. The relationships she forms along the way are heartwarming and add depth to the story.

The writing style of the author is impeccable. The prose flows effortlessly, making it easy to get lost in the story. The pacing is just right, with a perfect balance of action and introspection. The author’s attention to detail is evident in every sentence, painting a vivid picture of the settings and enhancing the overall reading experience.

When Trees Fall is a thought-provoking and emotionally charged novel that will stay with you long after you’ve finished reading. It explores themes of love, loss, and the resilience of the human spirit. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a gripping and well-crafted story.
