Now, having said that I will be completely honest and say I am not blowing smoke when I say that this is an amazing book. It will blow your damn mind.
I am a huge fan of smart writing and I have said it before, I will say it again. Jenni's writing style is amazingly smart. So smart that you will be analyzing for days after you finish the book and suddenly something will flash and you will say "Oh my GOD! How did I miss that???"
Subtlety, nuances and hidden clues will come rushing out at you after you are done with this book. You will need to investigate. You will go back through the book with fresh eyes and see what you missed that was right in front of you the whole time.
Sound amazing? Yes. It is.
The characters are deep and complex, the story line is soul crushing, heart breaking and redeeming. It's everything I love in a book.
This is not a book that you close with a happy sigh when it's over. It's a book that you sit stunned and go through a myriad of emotions when you are done. The emotions you experience will depend on the eyes through which you read the book. But, no matter what you feel, I guarantee that you will really feel. A lot.
If you want a book to grip you, stay with you and make you feel...go read this book now and prepare to be blown away.
Grace is living the American dream in Texas, married with two children and she volunteers at the local church soup kitchen. A horrific tragedy leaves her widowed and she finds a friend in the local parish priest, Father Paul.
Father Paul is a very popular priest, attendance at church has never been higher amongst females. To cut to the chase, he is young and gorgeous. He and Grace form a lovely friendship and he helps her come to terms with how her life has changed overnight.
“Each of us is a complete person all on our own. You are a complete on your own Grace.” - Paul
Grace’s sister Kate also has her eye on Father Paul and the more time she spends in his company, the more she thinks of him in ways that are less saintly and more sinful.
This is a beautiful story about learning to live again, even when you feel like you life has fallen apart and your reason for living doesn’t exist anymore.
Can I just say that I was confused about the ending of this book. It looks like there are two endings, the main story seems to end and then an alternative ending, I think.
My favourite quote from this story was “I didn’t want you to sit in the dirt” – when you get to that part you will know why :)
Kate was always there to support her get through it all. even tho they weren't blood sisters they were close and shared in their pain and loss.
so I reading about Grace finding her will to live because of Paul the priest and I was actually rooting for them to be together. Paul realized that his heart wasn't fully in the church so he was leaving everything seem to flow and a happy ending that I was expecting was happening then BAM......the story twisted the flipped then rotated and then I was upside down. I was lost. I didn't known if some pages were missing or what but confusion set in. don't get me wrong I love twists but this one literally altered my entire thinking process and the story I thought I was being told. I'm sure how I feel about that because my nerves were raw and exposed and vulnerable at that point and I didn't see that coming.
