My dearest daughter, I will never forget the day I nearly lost you. The day you learned the secrets that would tear our lives apart…
Time stops for Jen when her beloved daughter, Gracie, is involved in a terrible car crash. Pronounced dead at the scene, it’s a miracle when paramedics manage to then resuscitate the little girl.
The relief Jen feels at Gracie’s recovery is matched only by her fury at the driver of the car – her ex-husband’s new girlfriend Ella. Jen has never trusted Ella, and now her worst fears have been confirmed.
But then Gracie begins to tell strange stories about what she heard in the car that day, and what she saw in those moments near death. It’s clear that there’s something shocking hidden in Ella’s past… but exposing it could tear all their lives apart.
An emotional page-turner that will take your breath away. Perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Lisa Wingate and Kerry Fisher.
Gracie’s Secret was such a beautiful story! I fell in love with this book right away. As you know we read a lot of thrillers, so I was very suspicious of Matt for the first part of the book. But once I got over that (haha) I fell into the book and found the most beautiful story full of love.
A mother’s love is far beyond explanation but you can feel the strength of it in this book and as a mother it makes me want to hold my children tight. The heart wrenching accident that starts off the book and the way Jen’s whole world stops for her daughter, waiting for her to come back, catches you from page one and and holds onto your heart through the whole book. Jill Childs deals with tough situations in Gracie’s Secret from death, beliefs, divorce and loss. Gracie’s Secret is a breathtaking must read!
