Women's Fiction

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.

But 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.

Shades of 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.

I'm not a mother but I absolutely love
Mothers Day. I have the world's greatest

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?

I love stories with strong moms in them.

I loved getting books fromt he library and whenever I got money from my gma I would buy a Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden book.

I love reading My mom got me into reading!!!!

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.
Karen Triolo 4:18pm May 16, 2009)

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.
