Read from March 26 to April 10, 2012

I read T. Greenwood's first novel over a decade ago, and since then I have always been anxiously awaiting her next. Her characters are always captivating and her story lines complex and heartwrenching. When I learned the premise of GRACE and later read a sample of the book, it heightened my anticipation of devouring the entire story. I had to know why the characters had come to the place I found them in the opening scene.

Each of the interweaving story lines in GRACE is so very relevant, and the way in which it clashes and comes together with the others is brilliant. Kurt and Elsbeth, Trevor, Gracy, and Crystal are bound by circumstances and parallels that are familiar and yet remarkable. Through a point of view that alternates among the characters, the reader often sees what is not easily perceived by others in the story, but he cannot reach out to stop it. I wanted to. I longed to pull the characters back from their crash course, but the fact that I could not intercede kept me reading at an increasingly dizzying pace, right through the inevitable collision to the end.

And now, to impatiently wait for the next T. Greenwood novel.
