When the Stars Begin to Fall

Audiobook

Everyone in Timber Falls knows that his family is trash, and sometimes Harry White thinks he'll always be trash. But he can't help getting angry—what had he and his sister, Helen, every done to anybody? When he discovers the local carpet factory is polluting the river, he comes up with a bold expose to make people sit up and show him respect—if his plan works. He wants to do it alone even though he knows he's asking for trouble. As trash, Harry's got nothing to lose. Or does he? Gripping, disturbing, and exhilarating, When the Stars Begin to Fall reveals the hidden forces that conspire against well-meaning innocents. Harry's desire to change himself and society is so powerful, his voice so direct and real, that listeners of this story won't forget his struggle for dignity. In this striking departure from the historical novels he is so well known for, James Lincoln Collier has written a powerful—even shocking—novel that challenges and defies the rhetoric of contemporary America.
