The Grace of Crows by Tracy Shawn

Tormented by anxiety, Saylor Crawmore tries every cure from self-help books and therapy to medication. Nothing has worked. She's desperate for an answer. Along with Saylor's anxiety, she must navigate the ongoing rip current between the troubled generations of her family. Her aging mother's narcissism, her teenage children's compulsions, and her husband's need to pretend everything is okay compound her debilitating fears. Saylor discovers her childhood friend Billy, homeless and ignored since his teens, and her world begins to shift. This encounter sparks Saylor's journey to gain insight into her strange fears and forge the power to overcome them. Armed with her new awareness, Saylor summons the courage to help her family.

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 :)
