In the lilting narrative voice of Grace Barnum, we follow her journey to love.
We meet her first when she is an editor for a textbook company: boring, predictable, responsible. Living with her equally predictable boyfriend Steven. Her life is pretty much all figured out.
And then she meets handsome, charming, responsibility-challenged Tyler Wilkie when he is walking the neighbor’s dogs. And something subtly begins to change for Grace.
But she fights it. How can she possibly feel what she’s feeling for this musician? This man who shortly begins to develop a following, with groupies.
Throughout Grace Grows, we come to root for Grace and Ty, even when they don’t believe in themselves. Then Ty does believe in the two of them, but Grace doubts it.
What will it take for Grace to grow? She must make choices, givie up old ideas, and let go so she can love. Will she finally find what has eluded her for her whole life?
Very enjoyable and charming tale set in New York, with funny and quirky characters that made me care about them. A little predictable. But a fun four star read.
