Review:

Patricia Gaffney worked as an English teacher and then a freelance court reporter for fifteen years. She gave up her job in 1984 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Since her successful treatment she has written twelve historical romances. The Saving Graces is her first work of contemporary fiction.

The Saving Graces are four women, who have been close and supportive friends for ten years. The book follows them through two turbulent years in their lives. Isabel, who brought the group together is divorced, in remission from breast cancer and beginning a relationship with Kirby, her neighbour. Lee has a great job, loves her husband but the stress of trying to have a child is driving them apart. Emma, the fiery one is sceptical about love until she falls for the one man she can't have. Rudy, who has grown up in a dysfunctional family, is now being controlled by a manipulative and brutal husband.

This beautiful novel charts the women's ups and downs and how their courage, loyalty and love for each other gives them their means of survival even when faced with tragedy. Patricia Gaffney’s The Saving Graces is an outstanding novel written with both tenderness and spirit. --Pat Naylor
