Read full description of the books The Stages of Grace:They say that all is fair in love and war.
After more than fifteen years of marriage, cartoonist Gracie Carpenter discovers her husband is a serial cheater. Not only that, but she is struggling to resuscitate her career, to care for her widowed father who has Alzheimer’s, to find a way to re-connect with her teenage son, and to help her best friend through her latest crisis. And just when things reach a breaking point, she meets the ghost of the daughter she never had.
Gracie wants nothing more than for her life to return to the way it was. Even with everything that is going on, she thinks her daughter’s sudden appearance is a sign that she and her husband should try again.
As her life falls apart, Gracie discovers that the root of so much pain may lie in a terrible mistake she made as a young girl-a mistake that left a boy dead.
To save herself, her son and her life, Gracie must confront her husband. And her past.
Can Gracie find the strength to overcome her past? Can she start over and forge a new life-one built on strength and love and forgiveness? Can she, in fact, find grace?
Read information about the authorI grew up in Puerto Rico during the 1970's when helicopter parents did not exist and when kids did a lot of the raising up of themselves.
We surfed, we swam, we scuba-dived and boated. We explored caves and rode natural slides carved through plunging mountainsides by tropical rain forest rivers. We slept to the rhythm of the waves meeting the shore just one hundred feet from our windows.
It was a crazy, wild, idyllic growing up.
Along my way, I have worked in the spa industry (as one of the first spa directors in the US, and as Ritz-Carlton's first) and find that that atmosphere suits me very well.
About seven years ago, I left the tropics, after 27-years in PR, and more in Mexico and Hawaii, and moved to New Hampshire to meet back up again with the man whom I dated all through college and who, but for two people who are too stubborn for their own good, would have married way back when.
A change of place allowed me to re-think my path. After finishing my Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, I decided to take the opportunity of a new beginning to dedicate myself to my two (non-human or dog) loves: writing and painting.
I'd been selling my paintings for more than a decade before recognizing that I could pair them with stories to create "adult picture books," like my 2012-released book, The Complication of Sisters.
In 2011, I opened Madaket Lane Publishers, an independent boutique publishing agency where I can work one-on-one with authors and illustrators to bring distinct voices and compelling stories to life.
Though I miss the warmth and the sound of the sea, life is very, very good. I am reminded of the saying, "Happiness is not getting what you want, it is wanting what you've got." By that measure, I am the happiest woman on Earth.
