Somebody’s coming for you
California: Twelve-year-old Melanie has been in foster care her whole life, moving from home to home—unloved and unwanted. And although she has found relative contentment with her current foster parents, Melanie harbors a secret that, if discovered, would blow her world apart. Someone talks to Melanie, a presence no one else can see or hear, and this presence has a message for her: something bad is about to happen.
New York: After years of battling with her troubled, unpredictable mother, Louise has managed to find peace in her solitary existence. Until the day Grace crashes back into her life and entreats Louise to help her save a child from imminent danger. Unwilling to get caught up in her mother’s madness, Louise resists. But she realizes the only way to be rid of Grace once and for all is to play along.
Louise and Grace set off across America in search of Melanie, driven by Grace’s firm belief that they have to get there before the bad thing happens. To do that, Louise must first come to understand and trust her mother. But after a lifetime of pain and dysfunction, can the two finally heal old wounds in order to save one young girl?
“Finding Grace is a compelling psychological suspense drama about the ties that bind and the forgiveness that lives within us all. A truly unique and captivating read!” —Wendy Walker, bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten
“I loved how this story was told from the multiple viewpoints of the many characters. It showed excellently how we all interpret the same situation differently. I had a hard time putting the book down, and with such short chapters, it made it easy to think I could read at least one more. There are some broken people here, but also lots of redemption. I loved the supernatural element, which didn’t overpower the characters or plot. Very well done.” —Seattle Book Review (5 stars)
“[An] engrossing paranormal thriller…Thomas keeps the reader guessing what’s going on as she shifts between the perspectives of Louise, Grace, and Melanie en route to the touching, bittersweet ending…Those who value character-driven suspense will be rewarded.” —Publishers Weekly
“An authentically creepy tale.” —Kirkus Reviews
