So I was watching Fabulous Book Fiend’s YouTube channel the other day and Catriona mentioned this book. The Truth and Triumphs of Grace Atherton by Anstey Harris. Now I had seen the book all over social media. But it was not a blog tour I had been part of and I didn’t know much about it.
Here’s Fabulous Book Fiend’s video:
I highly recommend giving Catriona’s channel a follow. I love watching her stories both on YouTube and Instagram. It is nice to have the same book tastes and she is just awesome. So be sure to hit that subscribe button and you too can have great content straight to your feed.
Now all about the book, it currently only £4.99 for the hardcover on Amazon UK, I will pop the link below for you. I ordered my copy the other day and it arrived yesterday. If you have watched the video above you will see how gorgeous the naked book is and special end pages. All little details that just add that touch of class to the aesthetics of the book.
It would be perfect as a gift for birthday’s, Mother’s Day etc or just for YOU.
Back of the Book
The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton is the story of a woman who has her heart-broken, but then puts it back together again in the most uplifting and exquisite way.
Between the simple melody of running her violin shop and the full-blown orchestra of her romantic interludes in Paris with David, her devoted partner of eight years, Grace Atherton has always set her life to music.
Her world revolves entirely around David, for Grace’s own secrets have kept everyone else at bay. Until, suddenly and shockingly, one act tips Grace’s life upside down, and the music seems to stop.
It takes a vivacious old man and a straight-talking teenager to kickstart a new chapter for Grace. In the process, she learns that she is not as alone in the world as she had once thought, that no mistake is insurmountable and that the quiet moments in life can be something to shout about …
