A gentle yet unflinching look at how we find our way home, in the tradition of Rebecca Wells, Sue Monk Kidd, Olive Ann Burns, and Dorothy Allison. A woman returns to her West Virginia roots to resolve the ghosts of her childhood.

Tender Graces by Kathryn Magendie is strong literary women's fiction written with exquisite style. The death of her troubled mother and memories of her abused grandmother lure a young woman back to the Appalachian hollow where she was born. Virginia Kate, the daughter of a beautiful mountain wild-child and a slick, Shakespeare-quoting salesman, relives her turbulent childhood and the pain of her mother's betrayals. Haunted by ghosts and buried family secrets, Virginia Kate struggles to reconcile three generations of her family's lost innocence.

    " The story of a young woman coming to terms with the failings of her alcoholic mother and eventually finding peace and self-worth. I enjoyed getting to know the main character and exploring her emotions and growth. "

    " It has been a long while since I could not put down a book. Finally (long time coming after Cold Mountain) I found it in Tender Graces. After reading other reviews I can only add that this author has captured the thoughts and feelings of a young girl so well. Magendie has succeeded so well that this old gal actually could recall those feelings through the main character, Virginia Kate. An excellent read. "
