The Fall of Grace ARC Review
The Fall of Grace by Amy Fellner Dominy
I want to preface this by thanking Amy for giving this to me personally at the Tucson Festival of Books after I told her how much I've been dying to read it. She's such a kind human and listening to her speak was wonderful. Now onto the book. The Fall of Grace is about Grace and her life after her mom gets accused of pretty major investment fraud. The book bounces back and forth between right when she finds out and months after which is something I loved.
Grace's life as she knows it is falling apart and we get to see how she handles it. The choices she makes as she searches for the truth. I kind of see her as a girl who has lost her way. One who put all of her trust in her mother which is something I do. A mother is supposed to look out for you, teach you. One thing that really grabbed me, other than the mystery aspect, was the fact that she looks to the wilderness to help her. Y'all know I love to escape to the mountains. Up high with the trees is where I find my peace.
I'm trying to be vague because I don't want to give anything away. I can say one thing and it could be just enough for the right person. So what I will say is this, Amy did a wonderful job writing this book. I enjoy her characters and the journey. I knocked it down half of a star because I was a little unsatisfied with the ending, but not so unsatisfied that I didn't still love it. Books can't always end the way everyone wants them to. It's definitely worth a read.
