Winner of the Silver Medal for Western Canadian Fiction at the 2011 Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards Sometimes it's the little things in life that make all the difference, like chromosomes, sperm, bugs or an endangered seabird that nests in old-growth forests. But, what's big or what's little depends entirely on your perspective. Faye Pearson is a three-and-a-half-foot tall female scientist doing entomological research in the tallest trees on Vancouver Island, who is pit with a ragtag group of protesters against the might of a multinational logging corporation. The story of Faye and her struggle to function in a world not made for people her size is poignant and heart-warming. Whether she is lusting after her climbing partner, standing up to a conflicted logging boss, dressing down an insulting interviewee, nurturing a wayward child in the midst of an environmental standoff, or being carted off under the arm of a Mountie, you'll be unable to resist this amazing woman. There is a fall in Eriksson's novel, but also incredible moments of grace. Falling from Grace is a novel of no small achievement.
