Grace and Truth

by Jennifer Johnston
£7.99   paperback  Headline Book Publishing (2005)

Grace and Truth by Jennifer Johnston 'Who is my father? Where in the world is he? Alive or dead?'
Sally, a sucessful actress, has just returned to Ireland from a long European tour. Exhausted, she wants only to rest and to see her husband Charlie again. But Charlie announces that he's leaving her, and Sally, devastated and furious, makes him pack his bags at once. Maybe thought, she wonders later, she really is too hard to live with?
As a child growing up in Dublin, Sally never had friends around to play: her lonely, secretive, unmarried mother had kept her close to her side. Now, on stage, she makes good use of those years spent observing grown-up behaviour, Sally knows she can effortlessly mimic others, but who is she, herself?
Suddenly, a face and a shadowy voice come into her mind. With desperate courage, Sally sets out to call on her grandfather, the reserved, dignified old Bishop she has never really known.

"A carefully crafted story... the structure is masterly, and the writing pungent."
(Penelope Livelt, The Sunday Times)
