"Falling Away" is the story of Terrance Carver; Poet, coward and lost child of the Universe. Terrance is on a quest, a quest to right wrongs? A quest to alter the past? Or is it merely a quest of self-preservation?
The night of the bungled armed robbery all those years ago still hangs over him. The night that saw his youngest brother arrested and, the night Terrance Carver was disowned by his eldest brother and most importantly, this was the last night he ever saw Lucinda. Now finally after years of hiding in a dank city refuge, The Liar's Den, he summons the courage to return home to the scene of his (almost) crime.
Terrence Carver will have to confront his siblings; one imprisoned, the other in marital turmoil, street corner gangsters, a wise cracking priest, runaway children and car thieves waiting to get caught, before he can beg for the forgiveness of Lucinda.
"Falling Away" is not only an acknowledgment of the shades of grey that define us all, but it poses the question what does it mean to be good? And why are some people better at it than others?
