Synopsis

From Jennifer Weiner, one of America's most celebrated and beloved writers, comes a new novel that takes on the controversial topic of women and addiction and proves to be her most absorbing and timely story yet.

Gillian Weiss has a great job…a gorgeous husband…an adorable daughter…and a secret.

On the outside, Gillian is a normal suburban mother—until a website she develops takes off, giving her more money than she ever dreamed of, and her life starts falling apart. Suddenly, her husband's becoming distant, her daughter's acting spoiled, her father is dealing with early Alzheimer's, and her mother's barely dealing at all. As she struggles to be a good daughter, a good mother, and a good wife, to run her business and serve as Class Mother in her daughter's snooty private school (and maybe get to the gym every once in a while), Gillian finds that the prescription painkillers she took for a back injury help her deal with more than a just physical pain—they give her energy, help her feel calm, and let her get through her increasingly hectic days.

When her use gets to the point that she can no longer control it—or hide t—Gillian ends up in a world she never thought she'd experience outside of a movie theater: rehab. Amid the teenage heroin addicts, the alcoholic grandmothers, the barely trained "recovery coaches" and the overwhelmed counselors, Gillian struggles to get sober and ultimately rebuild a life where she can be a mother, a daughter, a friend, a professional success...and a woman in recovery.

With a sparkling comedic touch and tender, true-to-life characterizations, All Fall Down is another classic Jennifer Weiner tale of empowerment and redemption that will leave listeners laughing and crying to the end.
