Synopsis

'Glorious on so many levels' A J Pearce, author of Dear Mrs Bird

'I am rooting for Grace; because Grace teaches us that love - in all its forms - is friendship set to music... Its musical allusions and triumph over heartache filled both our reviewers with joy' Stylist

'Full of hope and charm' Libby Page, author of The Lido

'A hymn to friendship, to getting back up and finding happiness where none seemed possible' Katie Fforde

'An indulgently emotional and beautifully written story about new starts' Daily Mail



The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton is the story of a woman who has her heart broken, but then puts it back together again in the most uplifting and exquisite way.

Between the simple melody of running her violin shop and the full-blown orchestra of her romantic interludes in Paris with David, her devoted partner of eight years, Grace Atherton has always set her life to music.

Her world revolves entirely around David, for Grace's own secrets have kept everyone else at bay. Until, suddenly and shockingly, one act tips Grace's life upside down, and the music seems to stop.

It takes a vivacious old man and a straight-talking teenager to kickstart a new chapter for Grace. In the process, she learns that she is not as alone in the world as she had once thought, that no mistake is insurmountable, and that the quiet moments in life can be something to shout about ...

'An absolutely beautiful read' Heidi Swain
