Saving Grace

Jane Green. St. Martin's, $26.99 (320p) ISBN 978-1-250-04733-5
Green (Tempting Fate) woos readers with her latest offering, a memorable novel probing the flimsy fa├žade of one woman's seemingly perfect life. Grace and Ted Chapman have an idyllic life: he is a well-known author, and she is his adoring wife. When their assistant, Ellen, leaves her job, Grace is desperate to find someone who can take Ellen's place and can adjust to Ted's ever-changing moods. Grace hires Beth, who proves to be an excellent employee, anticipating Ted's needs and assisting Grace as well. But there are oddities in Beth's behavior that Grace can't explain. And when Grace begins to see a psychiatrist who prescribes a host of potent medications, she hardly recognizes herself anymore, either emotionally or physically. As Grace's life threatens to completely spiral out of control, she must take stock of what is most important to her and discover how to find true happiness. Green has imbued her story with realistic, imperfect characters. The lure of the novel lies in Green's ability to create a consistenly evolving story that entices from the very first page. First printing: 125,000 copies. Agent: Christy Fletcher, Fletcher & Company. (Dec.)
