A Little Bit of Grace

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  Grace McAdams is familiar with loss—she runs a law firm that prepares clients for the end of their days. But when her father skips town with a younger woman, her mother passes away, and her picture-perfect husband, Brian, divorces her for a woman who is pregnant with his unborn child, Grace is completely unprepared to lose the comfortable life she’s built for herself. She moves back into her childhood home and falls into the throes of grief.

When a letter from a long lost relative arrives in the mail, and Grace has the chance to connect with a virtual stranger, she decides she has nothing else to lose.

For the first time in her life, Grace is impulsive—she books the first flight out of small-town Missouri to warm and sunny Florida to meet her great aunt, Millie. Grace is flabbergasted when she is greeted by an exuberant, if not eccentric, octogenarian who seems to be full of life and sunshine. Even more surprising is the fact that this gregarious woman was cast aside by Grace’s family. It’s only here in her new tropical paradise, alongside Aunt Millie, that Grace begins to rediscover herself, find her passions, fall in love all over again—and uncover the secret her family kept buried for more than 50 years. 

A story that teaches us to live our lives to the fullest and to embrace the best parts of ourselves, A LITTLE BIT OF GRACE is a warm and insightful look at love, acceptance, and the definition of family.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  A Little Bit of Grace is a very pleasant read.  It explores all sorts of different relationships and self-discovery.  While I  found Grace to a tad weak at the beginning of the book, I was happy to witness her develop into a very strong woman.  An easy quick read with family dynamics.
