I’ve been a fan of Brittainy’s since the release of Loving Mr. Daniels.
Her gift of storytelling is incomparable.
I was lucky enough to receive an arc of Disgrace the day before my family vacation to Paris.
I started it on the plane and finished it on a boat cruise down the Seine river.
I would listen to the tour guide in English and then sneak a page while she repeated it in French.
That’s how much I loved it and couldn’t wait to finish.
The story is about losing yourself in heartbreak, sharing yourself in friendship, loving yourself in discovery and becoming whole again individually.
I loved Grace and Jackson.
Grace was heartbroken from her 15 year old relationship with her husband and Jackson’s heart had been broken longer in his life than it wasn’t.
I cried twice while reading.
Sadly, I share the same reason and the same number 7 and why it’s important to Grace so I know that loss.
Brittainy’s stories always make me feel like she begins by gently holding your hand, then squeezes it tight, lets it go for a while then returns with a hug.
She squeezes your hands a few times in Disgrace but you’ll be turning the pages quickly to prepare for the hug.
