LoveReading Expert Review of Restoring Grace

This is Katie’s tenth novel, I think she is wonderful. Good, old-fashioned storytelling, warm-hearted, addictive and very satisfying. She started writing when that awful phrase ‘aga saga’ became prevalent and in many ways got tainted by being lumped with a lot of uninspiring novels that tackled bored middleclass women trying to find some purpose in their lives. Joanna Trollope was swept into the same bracket for a time although Katie is slightly lighter than Joanna, they both tackle serious contemporary issues. I recommend her wholeheartedly. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Restoring Grace Synopsis

Grace Soudley's life is coming apart at the seams. Recently divorced, she is still living in the beautiful yet crumbling old house her godmother left her, but unless she can find a fortune, the house will disintegrate around her. Artist Ellie Summers' life is unraveling too. She's pregnant, but her boyfriend is less than enthusiastic about parenthood, and her parents are not exactly inviting her to move back home. She has to come up with a new plan. Fast. Ellie needs a place to stay; Grace needs a lodger. Each of them needs a friend, and together they begin the work of fixing up the house. But then an unexpected and disconcertingly handsome man arrives on the scene, apparently determined to help. And when Grace discovers some beautiful and potentially valuable paintings hidden behind the tattered dining-room curtains, the whole business of restoration starts to get serious.... This fresh, funny romance from bestselling novelist Katie Fforde offers charm, wit, and restorative new beginnings for all.
