Fall on Your Knees

To complete the 10 Essential Books list, Monique Polak brings us Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald. 

"Fall On Your Knees is a rare kind of book -- that's because it manages to be both literary and a potboiler. It's no coincidence that  
its author is also a playwright. This dramatic story moves from a coal mining community in Cape Breton to Jazz-era Harlem. At times  
mordantly funny, this book is also tragic, sometimes even painful to read. But once begun, it's impossible to put down."
