She has her issues, but who doesn’t? Grace is about to embark on a personal journey, where she will discover just how important the people we meet can be. She is about to realise that no matter how far you run from the past, it will always come back to haunt you. This time she has nowhere left to hide.

My Review: I would like to thank Louise Burness for allowing me the opportunity to read an electronic version of Falling From Grace.

Straight off the back of reading Ivy Eff, another of Louise’s novels, which I absolutely adored (you can visit my review here), I didn’t know what to expect with Falling From Grace. Was it going to be on par or was it going to be better or worse? I can say for sure it blew my mind.

The progression and style of writing compared to Ivy Eff is highly evident and the substance of the storyline is just amazing and awe inspiring. It encompasses a subject that we all discuss and one that I am sure is spoken about on a daily basis somewhere in the world. I never expected the twist that the novel threw me. I honestly didn’t see it coming, which from a reader’s point of view I’m glad of because at the end of the day, let’s be honest, that would really spoil it wouldn’t it if we knew what every novel was throwing at us with each corner turned?

The overall essence of the novel is all about being given second chances. If you mess up (which we all do at some point in our lives), you can be lucky enough to start over and do it all again – hopefully right the second time around.
