Hanna Who Fell from the Sky by Christopher Meades

Into the Wild

Read Hanna Who Fell from the Sky Online Free - From highly acclaimed, award-winning author Christopher Meades comes a magical, provocative tale of forbidden love and one girl's struggle for liberation

Hanna has never been outside her secluded community of Clearhaven. She has never questioned why her father has four wives or why she has fourteen brothers and sisters. And in only one week, on her eighteenth birthday, Hanna will follow tradition and become the fifth wife of a man more than twice her age.

But just days before the wedding, Hanna meets Daniel, an enigmatic stranger who challenges her to question her fate and to follow her own will. Then her mother tells her a secret--one that could grant Hanna the freedom she's known only in her dreams. As her world unravels around her, Hanna must decide whether she was really meant for something greater than the claustrophobic world of Clearhaven. But can she abandon her beloved younger sister and the only home she's ever known? Or is there another option--one too fantastical to believe?

With lush, evocative prose, Christopher Meades takes readers on an emotional journey into a fascinating, unknown world--and, along the way, brilliantly illuminates complexities of faith, identity and how our origins shape who we are.

A polygamous community, a cult, somewhere bordering the woods, in a secluded place called Clearhaven is where we meet 17 year old Hanna. She is about to be married off to a man who is three times her age, a man who already has several wives. An eerie read in many respects, a quick read and one t...

Hanna is turning eighteen in a week and has never left the town of Clearhaven. Her hometown is a polygamist community where residents blindly follow a cult-like individual named “Brother Paul”. Her father has four wives and has sired fourteen children. When her birthday arrives she is destined to...

Interesting premise but not particularly well executed. One character is clearly selected to say wise things, but not realistic teen boy things, and that really jumped out at me. The protagonist is about to be pushed into a polygamous marriage at age 18 but seems to "be surprised" that she will b...

Favorite Quotes: Paul the Third, was chubby and balding, like an off-kilter teapot always in danger of tipping over. Paul the Third wore a mustache that Charliss described as “four parts pubic hair and three parts bacon grease” and he perspired constantly. Hanna had felt like a rubber band stretche...

What sold me on this book: a young girl who has been raised in the secluded polygamist town of Clearhaven is soon to be married off to a man nearly three times her age. What kept me reading: Hanna was relatable. She was a teen girl who had been told one thing all of her life, and after meeting a...

Hanna Who Fell From The Sky by Christopher Meades was a bit hit and miss for me.   The part of the story which first caught my attention when I read the blurb - about a young girl living in a polygamist community - was excellent and I experienced the strength of emotions I had anticipted.   What...

This had such a promising start and premise. Meades created a vivid cast of characters and setting and the stakes are immediately clear. Hanna will either the toe the line and become the fifth wife of a much older man or she'll leave the community and start over. Sprinkle in the story Hanna's mot...

When you expect a book to have purpose, like tell a morale, be inspiring, etc., it's a bit odd when it doesn't seem to play out that way. I think Christopher Meades (based on the afterword he wrote) intended for this to be an inspirational story. For me it was a story of being caged and powerless...

Thank you so much TLC Book Tours and Park Row Books for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. From page one I was immersed into the lyrical prose of Christopher Meades. Following the heartbreaking story of Hanna who lives in a religious cult community, this story is all...
