Needing to escape her abusive marriage, Hadley flees with her two kids, knowing it might be her only chance. A woman who can’t even kill a spider, Hadley soon finds herself pushed to the limits as she fights to protect her family.
Grace, new mother of baby Miles, desperately wants to put her rough past behind her for good, but she finds it impossible when her path crosses with Hadley’s, and her quest for a new start quickly spirals out of control and turns into a terrifying flight for survival.
Stronger together than apart, the two find their fates inextricably entwined, and as the danger closes in, each must decide how much she is willing to risk for the other.
A powerful story of self-discovery, Hadley and Grace is the heart-racing tale of two women facing insurmountable odds, racing to stay one step ahead of the trouble that is chasing them, and discovering new kinds of love and family along the way.
From the very beginning of Hadley and Grace, I was captivated by the characters, from their individual stories to their teaming up in a crisis. What will happen to them as they flee their problems and begin to connect with one another?
Their adventures reveal much about how bonds can form in the most unlikely situations. The characters were fully drawn and felt like real people you might meet along the way in your own life journey.
I was rooting for them both and hoping for a conclusion much more satisfying than the one in Thelma and Louise, to whom the two are linked in many ways.
I could not put this book down, and when we reached the final conclusion, I felt like celebrating. 5 stars.
