Praise for I, Gracie
This story is exceptionally well told. Heart-wrenching. Honest. Filled with grace, filled with truth, filled with an unflinching look at dealing with a parent with dementia.
It also has all the hallmarks of an exceptional love story. Gracie and John…John. There is no better hero than John for Gracie.
Delia is a constant throughout the book, so we get to see her before the disease took hold, and Gracie is much like her mother.
Strong. Indomitable. Filled with grace, yes, but also with a rage of a thousand fiery suns. And her siblings, pastor, the town all deserve that rage.
Sala wraps up the siblings story, as well, with – there is no other word for it – grace.
Now that I’ve written this review, I’m going to curl up and re-read it, even though I just finished it this afternoon. This book has its hooks in me. No wonder Sharon Sala is such a beloved author.
