Not often surprised or amazed ...but this book far exceeded my expectations (in a positive way) and this book is NOT yet another of those self-help books I generally despise. "The Grace of Crows" by author Tracy Shawn, can be many different things to different individuals. I do appreciate not ruining literature with reviews ridden with spoilers, so will describe "The Grace of Crows" as part thriller and self discovery, attained through empathy, honesty and the breaking of destructive familial patterns, Novelist, Tracy Shawn portrays silence and conformity as the ultimate boogeyman. Can the protagonist stop catering, stop pleasing; just say " f*** it" to expectations and learn to live? Read it and find out :)
