On Grace by Susie Orman Schnall
About The Book:
Grace May is truly excited about turning 40 in a few months. And now that her boys are both in school and she has a stimulating new writing job, the next chapter in her life can finally begin. She can’t wait to rediscover the intelligent and interesting woman deeply buried under the layers of mother and wife. But when Grace loses her job and gets unexpected news from her husband and her best friend, life suddenly gets complicated. Grace stands to lose everything: her marriage, her best friend, and her sense of self. But by her 40th birthday party, Grace will realize who and what matter most. With laughter. With tears. With grace.
This is an excellent debut novel! I can not wait to read more from this author! This book was amazing! I think it resonates with me since I am close to the age of Grace. Okay, well not that close.... The story is a bit predictable, but it is told in such a great way that you keep turning the pages for more!
