March 18, 1925. The day begins as any other rainy, spring day in the small settlement of Marah, Illinois. But the town lies directly in the path of the worst tornado in US history, which will descend without warning midday and leave the community in ruins. By nightfall, hundreds will be homeless and hundreds more will lie in the streets, dead or grievously injured. Only one man, Paul Graves, will still have everything he started the day with—his family, his home, and his business, all miraculously intact. Kate Southwood's entrancing novel follows Paul Graves and his young family in the year after the storm as they struggle to comprehend their own fate and that of their devastated town. They watch helplessly as Marah tries to resurrect itself from the ruins and as their friends and neighbors begin to wonder, then resent, how one family, and only one, could be exempt from terrible misfortune. As the town begins to recover, the family miscalculates the growing hostility around them with tragic results. Beginning with its electrifying opening pages, Falling to Earth is a revealing portrayal of survivor's guilt and the frenzy of bereavement following a disaster. It is a heartfelt meditation on family and a striking depiction of Midwestern life in the 1920s. The writing is masterful. The story is unforgettable.

What was and what is are pulled together by the strong gravity of home. After growing up in southern Georgia, Tom moved away to Colorado to teach high school. After many years and retiring, he returns to Prosperity reuniting with childhood friends and a legacy born witness by the oaks. Childhood discovery and games gives way to the first black student at the elementary school and becomes director of the art center it has become. Comforts of home become uncomfortable searching for answers of a missing friend. The irresistible pull from memories of who we were blends with the reality of how the moments shape who we are. The mighty oaks grow their strong twisted branches from tiny acorns shaped by nature and the weight of their branches. Those ancient oaks watch over us as we grow shaped by moments of our lives.
