Overview

Kathryn Broussard has managed her life with dignity and an I know you have feelings, but I'm coming through anyway attitude. She exudes confidence and control over the land much as a reigning queen rules her court. Her main focus-Grace, her daughter. Although grown, Grace depends on her mother's razor sharp decision-making ability for everything. All is well in the land of dysfunctional mother-daughterhood until the unthinkable happens. Kathryn dies. With her mother now gone, Grace is forced to manage her own life for the first time. And Kathryn must find a way to maintain control of her daughter, even though unusual circumstances from the "Other Side" present a fair share of obstacles to overcome.

A mother's love, however dysfunctional, is a force to be reckoned with.

Meet the Author

As a native Houstonian, a rarity these days, I hold two licensures in the state of Texas: one in chemical dependency counseling, the other in massage therapy. In 2004, I trained to be a volunteer for Houston Hospice, a life-changing training session I believe would benefit all. Hospice, contrary to popular belief, is not about dying. Hospice is about helping you live until you die.

Although writing has been a part of my genetic lineage, the writing bug didn't officially bite until 2007. From that point on, my true life passion sprouted and came into full bloom. I'm an observer by nature...ask any close friend or family member. I've studied lines and movie dialogues for years, which can often become annoying to said above friends and family (I can see them nodding in agreement).

I'm married to a wonderful man and have a passel of grandchildren I adore. As a hobby, I crochet baby/security blankets (quite obsessively) for the Linus Project. Crocheting keeps my hands busy at night while I study movies and sit-coms for story ideas. I have always said I will learn to knit when I grow up. So far, that hasn't happened.

You can visit me at my website www.terry-lee.net and welcome to my world!

In Saving Gracie Kathryn is absolutely convinced that her daughter Gracie cannot handle life without her. Gracie is married with two children. She also cannot do anything without consulting her mother. What happens when both are without one another? What will both learn? Where will life take Gracie without her mother’s guidance?

I picked up this book under the recommendation of a friend of mine. Coming from an older gentleman who doesn't normally read in my spare time, I found this book nearly impossible to put down. Terry Lee has a way of captivating the reader with topics translatable to not just mother-daughter relationships but close relationships of any kind. The scenarios she describes aren't far-fetched but believable to a point of feeling like you know these people personally. I am a native to the Houston area of Texas, and I knew all the places she referenced to and could follow the map of my hometown embedded in my memories seamlessly. Terry Lee has written a wonderful piece of fiction to be enjoyed by people of all ages and gender. To say this is a great book for mothers and daughters may be true, however it sells the book short of its truly relatable nature.

Saving Gracie provides wonderful humor and thoughtfulness about life and the power of a relationship between a mother and her daughter. A must read for mothers and daughters but could just as easily be about fathers and sons. Saving Gracie provides lessons for all of us.

I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the various emotions as the characters experienced their personal growth. The use of humor in dealing with some of the family's dysfunction, as well as the afterlife was phenomenal. This was an engaging read with some quirky characters. Definitely a fun read.

This was a delightful read. It is the story of relationships and how when we enter into a relationship we open ourselves to not only great joy but also great pain. It is a love story and shows us that love is stronger than fear and that life is stronger than death. The back cover talks about a mother's love but I feel as if this is a story about all loving relationships and how the power of love can conquer any obstacle.

I read this book in one session as I could not put it down. I felt that the book "took me away" to a different place. I love books that have something to say and this book delivered. This book is many faceted and draws the reader in on various levels. I related to both Kathryn and Grace who both" grew up" in the journey along the way. Often it is in the letting go that we find ourselves and discover who we really are and what we can do! Most of all it is filled with understanding, joy, and love. Enjoy the read!
