At the heart of this story are two women in two very different circumstances – and one baby Grace in the middle of it all. There’s teenager Michelle, who’s only known a life of squalor and strife, who believes her baby is best off with another family. Enter Amelia, whose position is almost the opposite – having struggled with fertility she and her husband Piers are perfectly placed to give the child a stable home. But Michelle’s desire to have her daughter back throws Grace’s future into jeopardy. What I particularly liked about Grace, Victoria Scott’s second novel, is her choice to give voice to both women; neither of whom are made out to be villains. Instead, we are provided with a more nuanced discussion around motherhood and the complex situation some women can find themselves in. Who should we pity, who is more worthy? It’s a sensitive subject that Scott handles well, without stereotyping. There’s a judgement case in the end – and expect some emotional twists along the way.
