LoveReading View on 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

'A heart-warming tale of female friendship, fizzing with Fforde's distinctive brand of humour' Sunday ExpressEllie Summers' life is unravelling. Finding herself pregnant - and her sexy but idle boyfriend Rick less than enthusiastic about parenthood - she needs a plan. Fast. Grace Soudley's life is also coming apart at the seams - her only security is the beautiful yet crumbling old house she was left by her godmother. But unless she can find a fortune, Luckenham House will disintegrate around her. When Ellie and Grace meet, the two very different women find they can help each other out. Ellie needs a place to stay; Grace needs a lodger. Both of them need a friend. But then the disconcertingly engaging Flynn Cormack arrives on the scene, apparently determined to help. And when Grace discovers some beautiful painted panels hidden behind the tattered dining-room curtains, the whole business of restoration starts to get serious -
