Grace Dorian is The Confidante, America's favorite
advice columnist. Her wisdom has helped to guide two
generations—including her daughter, Francine, and
granddaughter, Sophie, who manage the vast Dorian empire and
oversee the thousand details of Grace's world.
a national treasure is losing her brilliance. Her once
razor-sharp mind is showing strain; her columns have begun
to wander. Concerned about Grace's health and future,
Francine must step in to fill her legendary mother's shoes
and somehow also live her own life—which now suddenly
includes her confusing feelings for Grace's handsome doctor
and new worries about tempestuous Sophie, who needs more
guidance than Grace's public.
Grace is a touching and heartfelt story in which love
and devotion are put to the ultimate test—a classic from
New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky.

Re: Shades Of Grace
After reading the excerpt, I would love to win a signed copy of this book. Thanks.

What? I'm first? Well, that's a first. . . :-)
My mother, too, was a big influence in me reading. For every birthday or special occasion I got books. First The Bobbsey Twins, and then Nancy Drew. They also bought me drawing equipment, as I'm quite good at art-type stuff.
I don't remember my sisters or my brother getting books, though.
Yes, it was my mother who got me reading!

In a weird way my Mom fostered my love of reading. She is a couch potato and she monopolizes the tv, she always has since I was a kid. Since I could never watch TV I ended up reading from a young age!

As long as I can remember my Mom and my Grandmom always had a book in their hands. I read in high school but not that much. It wasn't until I was a Mom that I really started reading. Now I don't go anywhere without a book I'm reading all the time.

It was definitely mom who got me reading. She use to tell me all the time that she read Green Eggs and Ham to me a million times - and most of the time I "read" it with her. My memorization was awesome then!
It probably also helped that I was an only child. Reading is a great activity when you are by yourself. Now, if I could just find a little more of that now . . .
So, thanks Mom!! What would I do without you?

My mom read to me as a child and gave me books that she loved when she was young. I am now a new mom and my daughter has a bookshelf full - so she already has a tbr pile. LOL.

My mom didn't read often, she was too busy with four kids, but she insisted we read any time and anything we could. I will always thank her for that.
