A young mother struggles to survive and provide for her small daughter in the aftermath of a devastating hurricane in the haunting women's fiction novel, Grace by Drew Davis. Over her lifetime, Grace has endured an alcoholic father, the suicide of her mother, and abandonment by her baby's father. Working hard to provide for her young daughter Sadie, Grace works as a hotel housekeeper and goes to school to get a better job. When a hurricane threatens her Biloxi home, Grace flees north with Sadie to get away from the storm. Depending on the kindness of strangers, they stay up north until the roads have been cleared, and Sadie's school has reopened. When Grace and Sadie return to Biloxi, they are stunned to find the devastation of the storm left Grace without a job or a home for Sadie. Depending on the arrival of the insurance check for rebuilding their home, Grace is living one day at a time. What will happen to them if the insurance doesn't come soon? Is Grace strong enough to face any more adversities?

Grace by Drew Davis is a stirring women's fiction story depicting the emotional ups and downs of a single mother. It is a dramatic and impactful story with a poignant storyline that touches the heart. Dogged by tragedy, the main character contemplating suicide was heartrendingly realistic; I could feel her pain and sympathize. In contrast, I enjoyed the calm and laid back demeanor of the hero, as it was the perfect antithesis to the drama and turmoil in Grace's life. It is a touching novel that will captivate the hearts of everyone who admires women who overcome hardship with hope and love.
