All Fall DownBook - 2014
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
This book is about a working wife and mother with an ill father who is just trying to manage it all, and finds herself taking more and more prescription painkillers to get through the day. I found it incredibly sad, though it was well-written and definitely kept my interest.

I guess you could say it all started when my brother married me off to Khal Drogo, a vicious Dothraki warlord, when I was just thirteen. I started drinking after my husband killed my brother by pouring molten gold on his head. For a while, it was social. I'd have a drink before dinner with my bloodriders, maybe two if we'd had a rough day, but after Mirri Maz Duur murdered my husband, it turned into an all-day-long thing...' "-excerpt All Fall Down
