A young woman's views of Grace Notes.
on 2 December 2000
This is a unique book. There are merely two parts instead of any chapters, and Part One happens after Part Two. The flashbacks are easy to follow, however, and provide insight into the life of Catherine McKenna, the primary character. The book opens with Ms. McKenna, a musical composer, returning to her childhood home in Northern Ireland for her father's funeral. She must face her past and reveal her wrongdoings to her mother after several years of no communication. She battles depression as well, though all eventually works out in the end. This book would be most interesting to those with a musical background, as it contains many references to Ms. McKenna's work as a composer.
