Waiting for Grace: A Novel of Redemption by Caroline E. Zani is the story of a man who was trying to find a new present where he can exist guilt-free, but he found something even better. Eli Cranston left his thriving practice in Los Angeles behind when he lost his daughter and wife. They were the light of his life, so when he lost them both, he just couldn’t stay behind and practice law as he did before. Moving to Bar Harbor, Maine was supposed to be an escape, but it turned out to be a new beginning. He not only learned to help people, but he learned to live once again. He starts a practice to help people find their new beginnings after letting go of their painful pasts. In doing so, he finds the missing piece in his life and realizes that he deserves to live too.
Waiting for Grace is such a hopeful and encouraging novel. We can all find a little part of ourselves in Eli because he is such a relatable character. The author did an amazing job at not only making him human but also making sure that the reader feels comforted while reading his story. I enjoyed the narrative; the author brought every page to life with her vivid descriptions and imagery. Her choice of words is so powerful that even a minor character such as Clem holds a bigger meaning in the grand scheme of things in the setting of the novel. This is an emotional, evocative and very entertaining novel by Caroline E. Zani.
