LoveReading View on Grace After Henry

Henry dies on page 11 in a dreadful cycling accident. Grace is waiting for him to join her viewing another house. Their life together stretching out in front of them is cut dead. Grace is forced to cope and it is that coping and healing that this highly accomplished author leaves us through. There has to be a buried secret, it is that sort of book, but the secret, when revealed, is totally unexpected by all parties except Henry’s parents. They have long buried it and are loathe to face it. Now, of course, the twist unwinds and Grace has a dilemma. Then another complication arises. As the story progresses and you run with it, you are forced to turn the pages faster and faster to an unexpected conclusion with a neat little twist on the penultimate page. Nice one.

Grace After Henry Synopsis

Grace sees her boyfriend Henry everywhere. In the supermarket, on the street, at the graveyard. Only Henry is dead. He died two months earlier, leaving a huge hole in Grace's life and in her heart. But then Henry turns up to fix the boiler one evening, and Grace can't decide if she's hallucinating or has suddenly developed psychic powers. Grace isn't going mad - the man in front of her is not Henry at all, but someone else who looks uncannily like him. The hole in Grace's heart grows ever larger. Grace becomes captivated by this stranger, Andy - to her, he is Henry, and yet he is not. Reminded of everything she once had, can Grace recreate that lost love with Andy, resurrecting Henry in the process, or does loving Andy mean letting go of Henry?
