In THE BEAUTY OF THE FALL, Dan Underlight, a divorced workaholic, recently fired and suffering from lingering grief over the death of his ten-year-old son, Zack, charts a high-risk, unconventional path with his new start up company, while negotiating a new, potentially transformative relationship with Willow, a poet and domestic violence survivor. Threatened on multiple fronts, Will Dan survive the ensuing corporate battles and realize the potential of his company? Or will he be defeated by his enemies and consumed by his grief?
RICH MARCELLO is a poet, an accomplished songwriter and musician, a creative writing teacher at Seven Bridges’ Writer Collaborative, and the author of three novels, The Color of Home, The Big Wide Calm, and the recently released, The Beauty of the Fall. He lives in Massachusetts on a lake with his family and two Newfoundlands, Ani and Shaman. He is currently working on his fourth novel, The Latecomers.
FILL THE SKY captures the challenges of mid-life, the hope we seek when we explore alternative paths, and the profound nature of women’s friendships. It’s a beautifully told and moving story about lifelong friends, the power of the spirit, and the age-old quest to not simply fight death but to shape an authentic life.
