Publisher's Summary

Kathryn Broussard has managed her life with dignity and an I-know-you-have-feelings-but-I'm-coming-through-anyway attitude. She exudes confidence and control over the land much as a reigning queen rules her court. Her main focus - Grace, her daughter. Although grown, Grace depends on her mother's razor-sharp decision-making ability for everything. All is well in the land of dysfunctional mother-daughterhood until the unthinkable happens. Kathryn dies.
With her mother now gone, Grace is forced to manage her own life for the first time. And Kathryn must find a way to maintain control of her daughter, even though unusual circumstances from the "other side" present a fair share of obstacles to overcome.
A mother's love, however dysfunctional, is a force to be reckoned with.

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

In liked this story very much, and it was narrated quite well, Michelle always does a good job...What I didn't like was how they made Gracie look like an incapable twit at times.. If you can be a good om to a special needs child, you are very capable...Gracie's moms lack of trust in how capable her daughter was, was quite controlling...even though she loved her daughter very much! I like how Both Gracie and Katherine learn how to let go...and I was very proud of both of them in the end...I did cry a bit, because this is a touching story...and it is well worth your time and a credit!!!

Fun book

Would you consider the audio edition of Saving Gracie to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version. Good audio helps picture the characters in your mind, and this audio did this.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Saving Gracie?

I really liked the character Ruby and the performer makes her come to life. You can just picture her standing in front of you and popping that gum!


What does Michelle Babb bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voices. She added the characterization so vividly that it is easy to picture each person. Her voice is very entertaining to listen to. She puts humor into the reading. The voice inflections were great.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I don't like to listen straight through and this book was good to turn off and contemplate the events. This slowed down the book so there was full enjoyment.


Any additional comments?

Very light book and fun to listen to.
