Grace in Winter

Deirdre Purcell

Write Review

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

From a cherished Irish author comes a moving seasonal tale of a mother, a daughter and affairs of the heart

Love at first sight, on an ice floe, on a dream cruise. The sound of wedding bells soon after. Impossibly romantic, or so it seems...

For mother-of-the-bride Grace, it is anything but. Years of caring for her beautiful, erratic and unpredictable daughter Leonie have left her wise and worn. As she watches what began as a hopeful break away for mum and daughter become a tale of newfound passion between Irish beauty and besotted American male, she braces herself for drama to follow.

And follow it does, in ways that she could not have predicted.

As Grace picks up the pieces of her life after unseen events leave her reeling, she soon faces her own tough decisions. A WEDDING IN WINTER is a compelling story of the bonds of motherhood and of affairs of the heart, which explores a feeling that never ages in a woman who has seen life from all sides. But will Grace manage to let love in?
