I had a hard time putting this book down. It is easy for anyone that has lost a much loved spouse to relate to Audrey's agony and grief. The journey she takes is one that is inspiring. Thank you, Mrs. Stark. for writing such a profound book; it is definitely a book I will keep and lend out only if I know for sure I will get it back!

Tender Grace is a phenomenal book. The characters are so true to life. Great rainy day book or to lend to a friend who has lost a love one. Can't wait for the next book.

Ever read a book that when you finished, the first word that comes to mind is "beautiful"? That's what happened when I finished this book. It was so wonderfully written and just flowed so perfectly. This book was just not at all what I expected. With the subject matter, I thought I would see cliched endings and characters but was instead delighted to see a new direction taken in the novel. It's a sad book as it deals with Audrey having to reluctantly face life after the unexpected death of her husband. It's totally understandable that she does not want to move on. However instead of just moping around and having change come to her, she instead goes out and discovers them on her own. I totally loved that she did that too. It gave her a quiet strength that I really admire. This book combined two of my favorite elements in novel. I always like books written in diary/journal format. I feel that they give the reader a better outlook into the mind of the character as you are able to get directly in their mind. Plus, I find them really enjoyable and they make for a faster read because with no chapter breaks, you can't stop reading! I also love books that have road trips in them because I love having the setting of the novel change. It's always good to see a character out of their element and able to explore the different customs, meeting new people and having adventures along their trip. Road trips usually also change the character and have them see things in a different light. That's exactly what happened in this story too. This is a wonderful debut novel and honestly one of the best debut novels I've read in a while. I will be looking forward to Jackina's next book. HIGHLY recommended.

Tender Grace touched my heart,ministered to my soul,and tickled me to the point of laughing out loud . I devoured it in two days (I had to make myself slow down, so it would last longer!!).I truly loved the story and characters, and I would love to read more about Audrey!!! It is well worth your time!

Just couldn't put this book down and finished it way too quickly! While it is a novel about the loss of a spouse, it is so much more than that. Jackina has beautifully used the story to help anyone who finds herself losing the joy she once knew, regardless of the circumstance that may have brought about that loss.

Jackina's sense of humor, as well as her love for art, music, literature and grammar do shine through in little unexpected moments...really delightful!

And, for those of us in the Tulsa and Oklahoma area, lots of references to familiar places make it especially fun!

We'll be reading much more from Jackina Stark!
