What does a marriage really look like behind closed doors? What secrets lie beneath the surface? How far will each spouse go to keep love alive? Saving Grace is a riveting, true-to-life novel about one woman’s journey to save her family—and herself—from New York Times bestselling author Jane Green
Grace and Ted Chapman are widely regarded as the perfect couple. Ted is a successful novelist and Grace, his wife of twenty years, is beautiful, carefree, and a wonderful homemaker. But what no one sees are Ted’s rages, his mood swings, and the precarious house of cards that their lifestyle is built upon. When Ted’s longtime assistant and mainstay leaves, his world begins to crumble, and Grace, with dark secrets in her past, is most vulnerable. She finds herself in need of help but with no one to turn to…until Ted’s new assistant, Beth, comes to the rescue. Young and competent, Beth possesses the calm efficiency to weather the storms that threaten to engulf the Chapman household. Soon, though, it’s clear to Grace that Beth might be too good to be true. This new interloper might be the biggest threat of all—one that could cost Grace her marriage, her reputation, her sanity…and her own life.
“Green spins a dark romance, recalling All About Eve, where intimacy masks betrayal.”
Green (Tempting Fate) woos readers with her latest offering, a memorable novel probing the flimsy fa ade of one woman's seemingly perfect life. Grace and Ted Chapman have an idyllic life: he is a well-known author, and she is his adoring wife. When their assistant, Ellen, leaves her job, Grace is desperate to find someone who can take Ellen's place and can adjust to Ted's ever-changing moods. Grace hires Beth, who proves to be an excellent employee, anticipating Ted's needs and assisting Grace as well. But there are oddities in Beth's behavior that Grace can't explain. And when Grace begins to see a psychiatrist who prescribes a host of potent medications, she hardly recognizes herself anymore, either emotionally or physically. As Grace's life threatens to completely spiral out of control, she must take stock of what is most important to her and discover how to find true happiness. Green has imbued her story with realistic, imperfect characters. The lure of the novel lies in Green's ability to create a consistenly evolving story that entices from the very first page.
