Falling by Jane Green begins as the a fairly typical love story between a man and a woman of very different backgrounds, but winds up ending in an unexpected way. Much of Falling is about Emma's path to finding happiness after leaving her job at a Manhattan bank and moving to Westport, CT, which is fairly boring until she begins connecting with her handsome landlord and his young son. Once Emma sees that she could have something with Dominic, Falling picks up and begins rushing toward what seems like an inevitable happily ever after until obstacles in the form of people start popping up. As Falling reaches its heartbreaking conclusion, one realizes that there are different types of happily ever afters.
