Falling Dark chronicles a cross-section of 1960s idealists and fallen dreamers. Still reeling from the violent death of her husband, Donna Bless is often too drunk to maintain the barest semblance of her former life, leaving her two boys to fend for themselves. She then takes up with Roy Dale, a boastful shell of a man who seems chivalrous but isn’t. Tim Tharp’s tale opens darkly, yet points to the possibility of redemption.
