    I absolutely loved loved loved this book, couldn't put it down.

    I absolutely loved loved loved this book, couldn't put it down. It's so beautifully written, the characters are likeable and engaging, the plot is well developed and it flows really nicely. I alternated between howls of laughter and floods of tears, a real emotional rollercoaster - one you feel you are on with the characters. What a wonderful wonderful debut. Definitely recommend.

    Spoiler Alert: Beyond Grace's Rainbow is the story of Grace Devl

    Spoiler Alert: Beyond Grace's Rainbow is the story of Grace Devlin battling her way through a terrible form of cancer: Leukemia. From the first scene in the doctor's office, when she has a very human "out of body" experience, you will be on her side and eager to take her journey with her, no matter how painful it might be. She's surrounded by a colorful cast of characters: a wide range of types of friends and her core family. The author skillfully uses their points of view, and their backstories to illuminate Grace's story. She's lucky to be supported by the wryly named Tom and Gerry, two gay friends, who make a lovely May/December-Felix/Oscar couple. The great thing about their differences, is that it just WORKS. Level-headed Tom keeps the group, including our Grace, in balance, while Gerry is the mouthpiece for ever type of emotion there is. He functions to call out the feelings in the story. Again, clever on the part of the writer. Tara is Grace's cousin, and best friend. She doesn't always wear her heart on her sleeve. She's softened and tempered by her husband, Sean, the teammate with whom Grace has sung competitive Karoake for years, but never sparked with despite his great qualities. Abbie is the chick-littiest of the group. Pretty, thin, with a dreamy career but always a bad boyfriend, despite her merits. This team backs Grace through her fears and struggles. Despite all of their imperfections, the group buoys one another up (Like on "Friends," but not as madcap, obviously). The hardest part of the whole book for me is the fact that Grace has a young son. Nothing is more heartbreaking than suffering your child's suffering. Grace has enough to deal with, but protecting her son is job one. As a single mother, it's all on her. Or so she thinks, until Jack's dad, Liam, reappears. He's not altogether welcome, and serves to stir the pot and worsen the storm at first. But every kid needs a dad, and Grace has always selflessly understood that.




    I enjoyed this book for it's humanity. It's very raw, and I warn you: You will cry. But it also has heart and humor, and reminds us that the only point of being on this earth is to connect and to enjoy our time while we have it. I promise after you read this, the way she has of dealing with rainbows will be forever a part of you.




    Carmel Harrington is a great storyteller, and she has a casual and friendly way of drawing you in, sitting you down, and telling it like it is in her own unique way. I expect more from this author, and can already see a row of her books on the shelves at Wal-Mart or Target. I will be there, buying every one.

    What a book!  Noticed it on a best tearjerker list on Goodreads, so decided to give it a go.
    And I can see why it's on that list, because I cried buckets when I read it! I did thankfully laugh thought too.
    I'll be keeping an eye out for more from this author.  For fans of Nicholas Sparks.
