READ AND REVIEW
LESSONS IN GRAVITY BY MEGAN WESTFIELD
Release Date: October 24, 2016
All eyes are on Josh Knox…
Fearless. Guarded. Cut-to-perfection. Daredevil rock climber. The best in the world.
This time he’s poised to scale Yosemite’s notoriously treacherous Sorcerer Spire, with Walkabout Media & Productions filming every move.
April Stephens’s dream to be a documentary filmmaker rests on her acing her internship with Walkabout, and that means getting the abrasive Josh to give her more than one-word answers in his interviews.
The problem is, with every step forward professionally, she and Josh are also taking a step forward personally, and after watching her stunt pilot father die in a fiery crash, a guy who risks his life for a living is the last person she should be falling for. Especially because in one month her internship will have them dangling three thousand feet in the air from the side of the Sorcerer. She’ll be filming. He’ll be climbing without a rope.
REVIEW: LESSONS IN GRAVITY BY MEGAN WESTFIELD
Lessons in Gravity by Megan Westfield
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Megan Westfield's use of rocky mountains, dangerous cliffs and turbulent emotions were essential to the plot line of Lessons in Gravity. Josh and April use their careers as shields. Both are running away from hard to face issues. The problem is no matter how fast they run and how far they escape, troubles still persist. For April facing her fears is a big step but she has yet to come to terms with the painful memories that dog her every waking moment. Lessons in Gravity puts the emotion front and center. April and Josh's journey is like pulling of a scab. It burns, it lingers but eventually it heals.
