I just finished reading this book, and I must say that I loved it. When I started reading Wherever Grace is Needed, I didn't know what I was going to find in those pages. It was the first book by Elizabeth Bass I read and I didn't know if I was going to like the book or not, or If I was going to enjoy her writing style or not. But I'm glad to say that I really enjoyed it.
Elizabeth Bass tells the story of two different families, two broken families, two dysfunctional families, and how they need to work together to overcome their problems and find solutions, and keep living.
At the beginning the reader can think that this is like any other dramatic book, but I think that it is more than that. We will see real life problems, and how those problems affect the life of a family. We will see how their relationships deteriorate, and we will see sadness and depression. Topics like death, dementia, forgiveness, love, new opportunities and guiltiness are discussed in this story.
There are a lot of feelings in this novel, and I'm sure a lot of readers will feel some kind of connection with the main characters, maybe because they had the same problems, they were in the same situation, or because those characters are so real, that you think about them as real people and not as characters of a fiction book.
Like I said before, I really enjoyed this book. Bass' writing style is amazing, sweet and realistic. There were a lot of lovely, funny but also heartbreaking scenes in this novel, and the characters were no exception. (If you want read a tiny excerpt, read my Teaser Tuesday 10.)
I don't want to talk to much about the plot because I think that the best way to enjoy this novel is reading it. Highly recommended to adults and young adults!
