'A subtle, moving and perceptive story of love, loss and hope.' - Sydney Morning Herald
'A fascinating dissection of infidelity told from the point of view of two couples. Voyeuristic in its storytelling, After the Fall is a gripping insight into the anatomy of an affair, in the tradition of Anita Shreve, Josephine Hart and Anne Tyler.' - Maitland Mercury
'Ladd illustrates just what makes human interactions so difficult.' - Oz Baby Boomers
'An engrossing dissection of an illicit affair. The heady passion, the stolen moments, all the cliches are there but in Ladd's hands they are anything but trite as the reader is swept along by the intensity of the characters' emotions.' - Townsville Bulletin
'A dissection of deceit and the heady days of new love.' - Bayside Bulletin
