ThingsAre_Finalby Rangeley Wallace

“Rangeley Wallace has beautifully rendered the texture of Southern life in this gripping tale of love, betrayal, and the strength of family,” wrote Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump. “Things Are Going to Slide is a remarkable achievement.”

A law professor at a university in south Alabama, heroine Marilee’s life quickly begins to disintegrate when her husband leaves her – pregnant- for a man. A cheating former lover steals the prestigious law chair from under her nose. And, to make matters worse, at the law clinic she runs, an indigent high school girl who she’s known since childhood is accused of murdering her newborn.

One reviewer described Things Are Going to Slide as “smart chick lit, mom-lit, and law-lit.” Midwest Book Review called Things Are Going to Slide “a powerful novel of chaos and recovery that will attract any interested in strong stories of professional women.” A romantic, smart page-turner, steeped in the tradition of southern literature, Things Are Going to Slide is “the kind of book that makes you keep reading long after you meant to turn out the light.”

If you loved Jonathan Tropper’s This Is Where I Leave You, you’ll love Things Are Going to Slide.

Praise for No Defense:

Wallace avoids any Grisham-come-lately clichés in this interesting novel of southern justice… This page-turner of a novel is refreshing in it’s uncommon perspective, as opposed to the usual legal novel that focuses on lawyers.”

Booklist

“A riveting courtroom drama…Another fine story in the Southern literary tradition”

Library Journal

Rangeley Wallace has written a taut, compelling Southern drama that is cut from the same cloth as Harper Lee and the early William Faulkner.”

Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump
