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.
This story is very different than a book that I would typically review. This is exactly why I wanted to review Stolen Grace. To say I was in a state of burn-out would be an understatement….feeling like I was reading the same story over and over on repeat again. Would I want to read stories like this every day? No….not because it wasn’t amazing, it was good, but it was also gut-wrenching. Arianne made me feel so many emotions, and I found myself aching and sobbing for this wounded couple and sharing their grief. 4 stars.
I’m not going to go into the story too much. You know from the description Grace, their child gets taken. Unfortunately, at the time all this happens Sylvia and Tommy are having issues in their marriage. Even with all the betrayal, hurt, and misunderstanding swirling around the relationship, Tommy and Sylvia have to put all this aside and work together as a team to fight to get their child back and ultimately find love again.
Arianne has created a story like nothing I’ve read. A story about grief, love, redemption….about how a parent will do anything for the love of their child. If your looking for something different than the typical romance reads out there today, something that will keep you on the edge of you seat and make you feel, give this one a try!
