Publisher's Summary

For Clementine Haas, finding herself is more than a nice idea. Ever since she woke up in an Irish hospital with complete amnesia, self-discovery has become her mission.

They tell her she's the lone survivor of a plane crash. They tell her she's lucky to be alive. But she doesn't feel lucky. She feels...lost.

With the relentless Irish press bearing down on her, and a father she may not even recognize on his way from America to take her home, Clementine assumes a new identity and enlists a blue-eyed Irish stranger, Kieran O'Connell, to help her escape her forgotten life...and start a new one.

Hiding out in the sleepy town of Waterville, Ireland, Clementine discovers there's an upside to a life that's fallen apart. But as her lies grow, so does her affection for Kieran, and the truth about her identity becomes harder and harder to reveal, forcing Clementine to decide: Can she leave her past behind for a new love she'll never forget?

Narration?

I should have listened to a sample first. The narrator reads in an up and down cadence and I can't hear the story for that unending roll. When she is being the characters it's actually good. But the narration doesn't work. I'll pass on the audio and read it!

Sweet baby Jesus, please send avoid at all costs

I was really looking forward to listening to this book. This is my first time with this author and narrator. The story is interesting but after 2 chapters I'm not sure I'll purchase the Kindle version to finish it. The overall writing isn't done in a concise manner. The catalyst of this story is the woman is a sole survivor from a plane crash. Her male nurse is working to help her recover her memory. It seems so forced that you're not really feeling a connection. Although the female is in a dark spot of being a survivor with no memory, it just doesn't translate well. It's truly hard to pinpoint the main issue but it falls apart pretty quickly. It is a Kindle Unlimited book, so I might give it a try to finish it.

The narrator was so bad and annoying, I tapped out after 2 chapters. It was so frustrating to listen to and became unbearably annoying.

Clementine’s actions

The story overall was good, but I couldn’t get over how Clementine/Jane treated her father. Especially after she found out about here mother. She was sooo selfish to do that to him....he didn’t do anything to deserve that. That’s why I gave it less than 5 stars for Overall & the Story.

A Charming Tale of Rediscovery

A look into starting out with a blank slate. A world of possibilities does exist.

Couldn’t stick with it

I found this to be boring - the story and the narrator. I tried to stick with it but I finally quit listening. Not finishing a book is not something I do so I was particularly disappointed with this story.

Predictable but mildly Enjoyable

Some characters Were quirky and interesting but otherwise pretty formulaic plot, My biggest problem was the narrator ’s voice was SO repetitive, I felt like I was listening to a news caster
Her accent is beautiful, but the repetition Of the exact same rise and fall over and over again was maddening

Sole survivor of an airplane crash

Clementine is the sole survivor of an airplane crash over Ireland. Frustrated by her totally amnesia Clementine decides to let go of her forgotten life and begin her life a new. A few plot twists keep the story interesting as Clementine struggles to decide if she can or should keep the truth hidden forever. The Upside io Falling Down explores Loss, independence, family, personal fortitude and, yes, love. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ 🎧 #audiobook #emptynestreader

Flight of Fancy <br />

Suspend your rationality and it becomes a fun, fantasy. Interesting premise, sweet middle, too pat ending make it a real mix of unbelievability but still mildly enjoyable.
