War changes people. Because of it, Everett was a
stay-at-home dad before it was a choice. Only his wife
Sue Ellen had a clue why he seemed to find it hard to
cope. His four children, while respectful, wished he
could do more than create gardens and fix breakfast.
Sue Ellen's illness meant he needed to be able to fend
more for himself. It also brought his World War II
secret to light. And from the sadness grew
understanding and stronger bonds. An important story
told with humor and grace.
Elaine Orr is a
magnificent writer and it
shows in Falling Into
Place. It's a very gentle
story about some of life's
most difficult moments,
and the gentleness
somehow makes it all
OK. This is one of the
best stories I have read in
a very long time. I
thoroughly enjoyed it.
And my guess is that you
will too. Elisabeth on

Nature has the power to heal, if only given the chance. Everett
was one of the lucky ones.
