    8. I entered to win this books in a Giveaway contest because I was looking for something new to read and the little blurb description about it sounded interesting However, when I started actually reading the book, I became skeptical that I would like it I felt a little out of place as a 21 year old reading this book about a 30 40 year old woman But, I was pleasantly surprised about how much I love this book The Stages of Grace is a book that tells the story of cartoonist, Gracie, and how her life f [...]

    9. I bought this book after reading Water from Stone, which I thoroughly enjoyed This story was really good with several interesting characters The way the story is told drove me crazy because the author switches back and forth in time It is not clear where she is at in the story until after you ve read for awhile Gracie is an interesting woman who has lots of problems She has a really hard time dealing with the truth about her philandering husband She refuses to accept what he is doing even after [...]
