Hanna Who Fell From The Sky

Arrives in stores September 26, 2017!

Released by HarperCollins / Park Row Books

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?

Advanced Praise

“Meades excels at creating a world both familiar and strange, in which the stories people are told, and the ones they choose to believe, wield great power…Characters are dynamic, full of complex needs and desires, and the story moves quickly with ever increasing urgency as Hanna’s day of reckoning approaches with exigent dangers from both inside and outside her home. An engrossing, richly layered novel.” – Kirkus Reviews
