Just before 11 o'clock on an ordinary summer night in Washington, D.C., Tucker Jones hears a devastating allegation about his daughter, a party, and some boys. From that heart-stopping moment, Breaking Her Fall moves with irresistible force to its wrenching and redemptive conclusion.

In a desperate rage, Tucker races to the party to find his daughter already departed, but his full-boil interrogation of the insolent boys ends with one of them crashing into a glass tabletop. In a second, Tucker's rage turns to remorse, but the gears of the legal machine are quickly set into motion, and they threaten to grind Tucker exceedingly fine.

He can easily lose his home, his business, and his freedom, but Tucker is most concerned with losing his daughter. Stephen Goodwin charts their uncommonly difficult passage from bleak despair to reconciliation and then to hope with extraordinary grace and insight.
