Armed with all the intensity of Jessica Knoll’s Luckiest Girl Alive and Noah Hawley’s Before The Fall, Freefall is the story of a young woman determined to survive and a mother determined to find her. Ready to jump in? Let’s get down to the nitty gritty!
Allison Carpenter isn’t the woman she appears to be. You see, she’s hiding a secret. The kind of secret that powerful men will kill to keep buried… So, was the fact that her fiancé’s private plane just crashed in the Colorado Rockies a coincidence, or is there more to the story than meets the eye? Either way, Allison knows one thing: If these powerful men find out that she’s still alive, they will come for her.
Unfortunately, Allison’s mom doesn’t know the whole truth about Allison. Living in the sleepy community of Owl Creek, Maine, Maggie Carpenter only knows two things: (1) that she hasn’t spoken to her daughter in over two years, since a shocking family tragedy drove Allison away from their home; and (2) that her only daughter is now presumed dead after a plane crash. How can it get any worse than that? Well, Maggie also didn’t know that Allison was engaged to the Ben Gardner, the wealthy pharmaceutical CEO, or why she would’ve been on a private plane in the first place. That’s just… not Allison.
Occurring at the same time from many miles apart, Allison struggles across the treacherous mountain wilderness while Maggie scrambles to uncover the secrets of Allison’s second-life, where she discovers a sleek socialite hiding dark secrets. What was Allison running from, and can Maggie uncover the truth in time to save her?
