A young woman must find her way in the world again after years of nursing her ailing mother in this novel by the bestselling author of Once in a Blue Moon
I, Gracie, survived . . .
When Mama announced to our family that she had dementia, my brother and sisters insisted they couldn’t help. They had their own lives elsewhere, after all. So, I gave up my dreams and spent the next nine years caring for Mama alone, losing her bit by bit, and nearly losing myself in the process.
I, Gracie, started over . . .
After Mama finally let go of this world, I let go of that world, too. I left the nightmare of my life with Mama, my family, and West Texas to start over in a new place, far away. It took some doing, but I have a new job, a safe place to live, and even new friends and a man who loves me, broken as I am. But . . .
I, Gracie, am scarred . . .
Until my past is buried like Mama, I keep my man waiting—struggling with what was and not trusting what is or could be.
I, Gracie . . .
Am on hold . . .still trying to let go.

This book shows sadness, weakness and strength. I thank god for being able to read such a great book by such a great author. It shows how to survive most of all from the horrific times in our lives.
Drew me in and wouldn’t let go
I couldn’t put it down. Gracie’s story resonated with me and my experience with dementia in the family. Her struggles rang true. I enjoyed her passage from broken to whole with John and her news family of friends.
