Reviews

"Moments of Glad Grace is an endearing delight." -- Shelf Awareness
"This is a wise, funny, and tender book, beautifully written and perfectly executed from first to last sentence. It's about a daughter and her ageing father, it's about genealogy and identity, it's about Ireland, but actually it's about how we love the ones we love. Moments of Glad Grace is a travelogue of the heart. It's a road you'll want to travel." -- Yann Martel, #1 bestselling author of Life of Pi
"This is a well written book that celebrates love and maturity, wisdom and forgiveness, and the hard earned peace that occurs when you have the courage to pass through heartfelt honesty to the other side of tragedy, loss and sorrow. Highly recommended." -- Vancouver Sun
"A richly layered journey, charmingly told." -- Plum Johnson, author of They Left Us Everything
"Dancing between hilarity and the poignancy of a last sojourn with her father, Alison Wearing once again reveals herself as a sharp and tender observer of this mortal coil we call life. Moments of Glad Grace is a journey you won't want to miss." -- Merilyn Simonds, author of Refuge
