    Almost forty, Grace May, is a mom of two boys and wife of a successful man. Then her whole world is shake. With her boys finally in school all day, she finds a job she cannot wait to start, until she loses the job before it begins. Then she gets more horrible news. Grace struggles to get her life back on track and make herself happy again.My Review:This was a easy read. I could relate easily to the stresses in Grace's life. Being a mother and wife brings on everyday adventures but add on the ext [...]

    As a vignette of a spoiled suburban mother and wife, this books succeeds admirably. The prose is light and easy to read, drawing the reader along even though the plot does little to excite interest. The only characters which seem mildly interesting are the supporting cast: Grace is a cardboard cutout, conveniently wealthy and healthy enough to never have to face any real consequences for her life choices and given all the time she wants to dither between them. She seems to devote as much angst t [...]

    Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy On Grace. I felt an instant connection to Grace, and I found myself engrossed in her story.Grace is an almost 40 stay-at-home mom who just had a bombshell–well, quite a few bombshells–dropped on her, destroying her seemingly perfect life. Grace is a fantastic character. She worries, a lot. She plans, organizes, worries, and tries her best. At the beginning of the book, Grace recalls a memory of lamenting a long introduction period to preschool. I totally re [...]

    When we meet Grace May, she is relishing the thought that her two sons, James and Henry, are about to return to school following summer break; Grace's 40th birthday is approaching, and she is contemplating thoughts of finding something "useful" to do in her life. After having given up a writing career in the health and fitness industry to raise her children, Grace is now confronted with the fact that Henry & James need a little less and she needs a little more.Even though I do not have child [...]

    Have you ever read the first ten pages of a book and sat, mouth gaping, saying "This is my life."? Well I hadn't until I read ON GRACE. The novel opens with Grace anticipating her soon to be free days. Her youngest will be starting school and she can now decide what she wants to fill her days with beyond the demands of motherhood. Wanting to re-enter the workforce, Grace encounters obstacles due to her lapse in work history and rethinks what she should be doing with her time. Should she keep pur [...]

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Talk about a book that will make you want to talk! I wasn’t even finished with this one yet and I was asking my friends and husband what they would do if they were in Grace’s position. A relatable and realistic tale that is easy to read and easy to absorb, On Grace stole my heart from the first page and kept me hooked throughout. I found myself at one time thinking I disliked this book, I hated what was happening, I wanted to th [...]

    REVIEWEvery woman should read this book. Once you open the book to the first page, you won't let go. I realized that the author was putting forth a message, Your life is valued by your family and friendships. When we are gone, that will be how we are remembered.This was a perfect read for that summer vacation. I turned the pages quickly since I was anxious to find out what was on the next page. I found myself reflecting and thinking throughout the book. I felt the book has some lessons in it abo [...]

    A purely honest story that many mothers, wives and women can relate to. I was instantly, I mean instantly drawn in. A crazy deja vu feeling and OMG do I feel your pain, happiness, frustration and so many more emotions because I felt like this story could be my own. The author bonds easily with the reader and just like that a literary friendship is made. A straight forward style of writing that is easy flowing and entertaining. My favorite chick lit book that I have read so far this year and I lo [...]

    I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth and gentle humor of "On Grace". Schnall writes with a complete abandonment of fear here, and she puts that same biting bravery into Grace. Both a story about starting over and the violent uprooting of the life she already leads, On Grace will appeal to those women of all ages (but especially those facing a big birthday!) who find themselves wondering "Who am I, and how exactly did I get here?" Grace is an imperfect woman with a less than perfect life, but [...]

    Check out the full review at Kritters RamblingsGrace is about to turn 40 and is feeling the effects of the big birthday. She is trying to find herself and her new role as her children are leaving for their first years in school and don't necessary need her as much anymore. I loved having a different age character trying to find her place in this new set of circumstances.Although this book deals with some hard topics, I think the author did a fantastic job of keeping it authentic and real, but no [...]

She can’t wait to rediscover the intelligent and interesting woman deeply buried under the layers of mother and wife.But when Grace loses her job and gets unexpected news from her husband and her best friend, life suddenly gets complicated. Grace stands to lose everything: her marriage, her best friend, [...]

    I love this book! this is my first book I have ever read from Susie and I loved it! My boss recommended it to me and I loved it. I think she has made her own writing style/influence come across and I truly enjoyed the book and finished it within a few days. I love chick lit but this was definitely much more than that. I loved how realistic it was and how easy it was to understand Grace and all of the other vulnerable yet real characters. it's a great book for women and men of all ages and paths [...]

    I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Grace May is happily married and the mom of two boys, now she's about to embark upon her fortieth birthday. Not only that, but she's looking forward to some new changes in her life. Both of her children will finally be in school all day, which opens up her days allowing her to return into the work force. She's been looking forward to this and the perfect job falls into her lap. Within one week, not only does she lose the job [...]

    Wow. Grace May is getting ready to turn 40 and she is excited about it. To me it seems that her life has fallen into a bit of a rut and she is making plans to change that. I was drawn in to Grace's voyage of self discovery as she deals with those life changing events that we all have and have to get through. There is so much of Grace that I see in myself and that I think that just about every other woman will identify with parts of who Grace is. I found myself liking Grace so much that the book [...]

    Have you ever wondered how you would handle a significant other's betrayal. Would you be forgiving in a situation like this?? Grace is approaching her 40th birthday, her children are both in school now and she is ready to go back into the work force. Everything is near perfect in Grace's world until her husband gives her some devastating news. She is not sure if she can ever forgive him. A series of events bring her full circle so that she knows that she needs to learn to let go and move forward [...]

    Maybe it's where I am in my life, but I loved this book. I thought it was smart and interesting. Grace is about to turn 40 and thinks she has it all -- a little boredom in her life, maybe, but otherwise, she has it all. Until her husband drops a bomb on her. It may sound cliche, but Schnall handles a common plot theme (infidelity, divorce, boredom in a marriage, etc.) with a fresh voice. I thought it was good. Ending kind of went a bit off with a subplot having to do with the best friend, but re [...]

    I really enjoyed the first 2/3 of this book. The last 1/3: not so much. The beginning moved quickly with Grace about to turn 40, her kids finally all in school, trying to get back into the work force and reconnect with her husband of 10 years. Grace's inner struggle after her husband confesses a drunken one night stand with a cocktail waitress during a business trip also rang true as did his reasons for this transgression. However, the book almost ground to a halt when Grace returned from a week [...]

    I won this book as a FirstRead.Grace has had a pretty good life, with two sons, a loving family, and good friends. Then, the day before her youngest starts kindergarten, she gets a call from the magazine she's about to go to work for, telling her that they are folding, so she won't have a job with them after all. Over the next month, she gets several more pieces of bad news.The book focuses on how Grace deals with these events. She is not perfect, but she does the best she can to cope with every [...]

    "On Grace" is a sizzling, dazzling and very fun debut novel that captures the questions and situations mid-life women reach as they inch their way to their forties. Author Susie Orman Schnall's cast of lively characters and fast-paced story is a treat to read - readers will feel they are right there in the midst of the group as they look forward to their futures. Fans of contemporary women's fiction will really get a kick out of this novel. I look forward to more work from this bright new author [...]

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well written, and easy to read. I didn't want to put it down as Grace's story evolved from her "worrying" about turning 40, having both her boys in school all day,"what should she do", to being told a secret by her husband, losing her job (that she hadn't started yet) to a health problem of her best friend. I love the "advice" of her Mom, sister, Dad, and best friend to "Stop worrying and thinking about what you are supposed to do, and think instead about what [...]

    Grace is looking forward to September when her two sons will both be in school and she will be starting her new job as a writer for a magazine. Her marriage is going great and her best friend has just announced she is pregnant. Well the boys do start school but She gets a phone call that the magazine has been sold and discontinued, her husband confesses he had a one night stand on a summer business trip and her best friend discovers she has breast cancer. Not the fall season that Grace was plann [...]

    I absolutely loved this story and the character of Grace! Grace is an easy to love woman and many times throughout the book I felt like she was inside my head. There are many situations in this book that I think many women will relate to. The author has a great insight into friendship, family and relationships. This is a great page turner and you will not be disappointed! I look forward to her next book.

    I really enjoyed this book. It's a light, easy read. It's about a stay at home mom, Grace, who on the brink of turning 40, is ready to return to work, but life throws her a couple of curveballs. She has to deal with these things with as much grace as she can. I enjoyed her character, as well as many of the others introduced in the book. I found her to be very likeable and relatable. I was always cheering for her!

    I was drawn into Grace's story from the very beginning! Grace's journey was very realistic, from her struggle to find a career that fit into her life as a mother, to her struggle to feel find fulfillment, to her struggle to work through issues in her marriage. As a Westchester resident, I can honestly say that the the setting was spot on. This was a fabulous debut novel. I look forward to reading Susie Orman Schnall's next book!

    Good read. Very close to home as I just turned 40 3 weeks ago. I liked Grace. She reminds me of me. Always worrying. Always figuring out what's next and if I'm doing the right thing. Am I where I "should" be at 40?. I also loved the LA references (I am also from LA but do not live in LA). Cute read.

    I received is book in a give away. Chick literature is not usually on my list. For a Change of pace, I read this and enjoyed it. Good story especially for anyone turning 40, going back to work after having kids, and a long term marriage.
