Review by Marlene Engel
On the outside, it would appear that Grace and Ted have the perfect life. Ted is a bestselling author and Grace is his beautiful bride of twenty years. They have a fabulous home, beautiful daughter, and seem to be the epitome of the perfect power couple. But, what the outside world doesn’t see is that Ted is the opposite of the persona he puts out to the public. Behind closed doors he turns into a person full of anger and rage.
It’s when Ted’s trusted assistant Elaine quits her job, because of personal issues and is replaced with Beth, that what originally seems like the best replacement for the job, turns into Grace’s worst nightmare. And Grace is left fighting to keep not only her marriage intact, but also her sanity.
Powerful, emotional and intense, Saving Grace will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions as a family who seems to be on the top of the world quickly plummets to the bottom and fights to make their way back to the top.

About the Author:
Jane Green’s sixteenth novel, Saving Grace, was just released in the UK and will be released in the US in late December. She is the author of fifteen previous New York Times Bestselling novels, including most recently Tempting Fate which came out in paperback in November.
A former feature writer for the Daily Express in the UK, Green took a leap in faith when she left, in 1996, to freelance and work on a novel. Seven months later, there was a bidding war for her first book, Straight Talking, the saga of a single career girl looking for the right man. The novel was an immediate top-ten bestseller in England, and Green was an overnight success.
Initially known for writing about single thirty-somethings with her trademark wisdom, wit and warmth, but Green has graduated to more complex, character-driven novels that explore the concerns and conflicts of real women’s lives, from marriage (The Other Woman) to motherhood (Another Piece of My Heart) to divorce, stepchildren, affairs, and most recently, midlife crises (Family Pictures and Tempting Fate).
Together with writing books and blogs, she contributes to various publications, both online and print, including Huffington Post, The Sunday Times, Cosmopolitan and Self, has taught at writers conferences, and does regular keynote speaking.
Most weekends see her cooking for a minimum of twenty people in her home in Westport, Connecticut, where she lives with her husband and their blended family. When she is not writing, cooking, gardening, filling her house with friends and herding chickens, she is usually thanking the Lord for caffeine-filled energy drinks.
