Paperback / softback


A Richard and Judy Book Club pick, set in Paris and Italy, The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton is a beautiful and uplifting exploration of love, loss and hope 'The real truth and triumph of this gem of a story is simple: it is one of the best and most gripping descriptions of heartbreak that either of us have ever read' Richard and Judy's review Grace Atherton, a talented cellist, is in love with David.

Together in their apartment in Paris, Grace and David are happy until an unexpected event changes everything. Nadia is seventeen and furious.

At eighty-six Maurice Williams has discovered a lot about love in his long life, and even more about people. And yet he keeps secrets. When Grace's life falls apart in the most shocking of ways Maurice and Nadia come to her rescue, helping her to find happiness and hope through the healing power of friendship.
