The move from New Jersey to Hilton Head, South Carolina, wasn't easy for the Russo family—difficult enough for Big Al and Connie, but even harder for their daughter Maria Graziella, who insists on being called Grace. At thirty-one and still, shockingly, unmarried, Grace has scandalized her staunchly traditional Italian family by moving in with her boyfriend Michael—who, though a truly great guy, is agnostic, commitment-phobic, a scientist, and (horror of horrors) Irish!

Grace adores her parents even though they drive her crazy—and she knows they'd love Michael if they got to know him, but Big Al won't let him into their house. And so the stage is set for a major showdown—which, along with a devastating, unexpected crisis and, perhaps, a miracle or two, just might change Grace's outlook on love, family, and her new life in the new South.

Some of the writing is entertaining but forgettable. - Goodreads
The ending is so horribly cliche that it wasn't funny. - Goodreads
The ending was very hopeful. - Goodreads

Review: Full of Grace

User Review  - Barbara Cook - Goodreads

2.5 stars. Enjoyed the book until the very end. I am a Christian and I believe God heals. You don't have to travel anywhere or touch anything. Even if He chooses not to, He is still my Beloved, Creator, Majestic Savior and my All. The end of this book I felt was a scam. Read full review
