Yet, Hoenig could not get the attention of the publishing world. Or rather, once her novel had been parked with one agent, no other agent would touch it. And once it had made the rounds of publishing houses, well, it was as unvirginal as a hooker trying to get married in Iran.... Never mind that the acquisition editors who had passed on contracting the book were no longer at the publishing houses and that the new editors replacing them have never seen the book (since the agent was not doing her work.) "Without Grace" was dead, while lesser novels were seeing the light of the day.
Carol Hoenig had the book self-published under iUniverse. I have many reservations about the way self-publishing outfits take advantage of desperate authors. But this was not the case, as iUniverse placed the novel in their "star" program and gave it the push a main publishing house should have.
And I am lucky to have stumbled upon Hoenig's book, which gave me hours of pleasurable reading I rarely get these days from a lot of the mediocre work out there that make the best-seller lists....
There are those of us who wait for Oprah to find for them hidden treasures of good writing. And then there are those who like to do the treasure-hunting themselves. I belong to the latter group. Check this one out.

I believe there is a part of all of us in this book. This book was very real to me and left me wanting for more from this wonderful author.
It was a great read, and soon as I finish present book I'm reading, will order her other book. Carol, I sure hope you're working on another!!!
I started this book while on a business trip, and finished it before I came back, because I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. I highly recommend it to men and women alike as a diversion that will unexpectedly make you think.
