A marriage on the rocks.
Their little daughter caught in between.
And a woman who will stop at nothing.
Sylvia and Tommy Garland and their five-year-old daughter Grace have moved from the bright lights of New York City to the peaceful wilderness of the Wyoming countryside. But with the recession on their heels, Tommy leaves for LA for a job interview, and Ruth, an old friend of Sylvia's comes to stay.
In an unexpected turn of events, a family tragedy forces Sylvia to leave Ruth in charge of little Grace for just one day.
A decision that will tear their lives apart.
Stolen Grace is a roller coaster of emotions with twists and turns, a tale of lies and deception, of redemption and forgiveness.
And ultimately, a love story.
I received this ARC as part of a blog tour to give an honest review.
Just by reading the title cover and the blurb I knew this had to be a good book that would suck me in from the beginning but I didn't know how bad it would suck me in. I was so involved with the story that I found myself wanting to slap Ruth for what she did.
You can feel the love that Sylvia has for Grace a mother's love. With this story it broke my heart being as I am a mother and to have my child taken oh lawd is all I can say to what Sylvia and Tommy had to go through.
You get three different point of views and it all goes together nicely it doesn't leave you confused or anything. You get Sylvia's point of view then her husband Tommy then you get Grace. And how this author was able to write from a 5 year old's point of view and what she was going through was remarkable. Most authors can not do that and this one did. With this story you get a sense of love, hope, forgiveness, heartache there are just so many feelings you feel it is hard to list them all. You follow the journey from what Sylvia and Tommy are going through to Grace being kidnapped, to an ending that I will not even give up saying anything about. You just have to read to find out what happens to Grace. There was one part in the story that my heart just broken and I was like WTF!!! But I can say Karma came back and was a b to this person. That is all I can say.
If you are looking for a book that will keep you wanting to stay up and read is far from anything you have ever read. Then I say get yourself this book because it is one you will want to own. I believe I have found myself a new author and I am excited to read her previous works and more in the future. Great job!
