What if early on your life changed drastically several times? What if you were betrayed more than once? Would you have the courage to fall in love again? How do you choose if you love two men at the same time? Will you be able to leave the past behind? These are the questions Annika asks herself in the novel HIghfall. Annika falls down many times but never gives up and always gets back on her feet. Her life is one long roller-coaster with the unexpected at every turn. As a result she turns from unassuming teenager into a strong woman. The book includes different facets of life, such as love, drugs, loss, despair and hope.
Although it reads more like fiction than biography, it is in fact based on a true story
This is truly a remarkable love story. Love the ending... the reader must decide what happens next for Annika and Stefan. Tough decision no matter what.
As a first book for this author, it shows she is a storyteller. I think by the time this author wrote the last half of the book, she had matured more as a writer or felt more intimately involved with the story. Those are the best chapters of the entire book. From that point on, I was totally engaged in the reading and could not put the book down. Stefan's love for Annika is so real the reader cannot help but feel for him. Annika's reactions are very real. This author describes Annika's feelings in such a way that the reader feels it and mourns for the love that could have been.
