About Susie Orman Schnall

Originally from Los Angeles, Susie Orman Schnall graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. Schnall has written for national and local publications about parenting and health. She lives in New York with her husband and their three young boys. ON GRACE is her debut novel.  

My Review:
This was a good book about being a mom, wife, woman, and worker. Where does one role end and the other begin? The author did a great job showing the different facets of Grace;s life. The "news" from her husband and best friend was what I thought it would be, and that is okay. It is okay because the author made the book more about Grace's reactions, then the actions of other characters. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
