The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton

The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton

The quiet moments in life can be something to shout about …

Between the simple melody of running her violin shop and her romantic interludes in Paris with David, her devoted partner of twelve years, Grace Atherton has always set her life to music.

But when David is revealed as not the man she thought he was, Grace is shattered. Heartbroken, she destroys the other love in her life, her magnificent cello, that she was building to enter in a world-famous competition. Grace thinks her life is over – no career, no relationship. 

It takes a vivacious old man who frequents her shop, Mr Williams, and a peculiar teenager, Nadia, who works part-time for her, to set about putting Grace back together again. Their efforts see the unlikely trio taking a spontaneous trip to Italy where Grace learns that she is not as alone in the world as she had once thought, and that no mistake is insurmountable…

For fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and The Keeper of Lost Things, The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton is the story of a woman who has her heart broken, but then puts it back together again in the most uplifting and exquisite way.
