An intense wartime friendship and a corrosive secret that is kept for decades are at the center of this suspenseful novel of repressed passion and World War II tragedy.

Summary

Review Excerpts

"Bailey's light British accent is perfect, and her subtle adjustments of pitch and clarity, which permit effortless transitions from naïve child to bitter old woman, are most impressive." ---AudioFile

"Sarah Waters meets Daphne du Maurier." ---Harper's Bazaar UK

Summary

At the beginning of World War II, twelve-year-old Nora Lynch is one of thousands of London children sent away to the safety of the English countryside. Her surrogate family, Reverend and Mrs. Rivers and their daughter, Grace, are like no one she has ever met, offering shelter, affection, and the sister she never had. But Nora is too young and too naïve to understand the cracks beneath the surface of her idyllic new life at the rectory or the disappointments of the Riverses' marriage. And as her friendship with Grace grows more intense, she aches to become even closer. What happens next is a secret that she keeps for more than fifty years, a secret that she can begin to reveal only when, elderly and alone, Nora knows that she is close to the end.

A beautiful meditation on love, friendship, and family, Days of Grace is a stunning debut that brings a tumultuous era to life. Nora tells her story in alternating chapters from the past and present, projecting her childhood nostalgia with a cinematic glow.
