Lorraine Hanover, whose novel is in part inspired by her own mother's wartime recollections, is herself a natural story-teller

Lorraine Hanover, whose novel is in part inspired by her own mother's wartime recollections, is herself a natural story-teller. She movingly evokes the Scotland of World War II, with all its hazards and hardships; her judicious use of dialect adds powerfully to the local flavor (a helpful glossary explains unfamiliar terms). An author of great compassion, Oman Hanover skillfully leaps across two continents and seven decades to blend two heartbreaking coming-of-age stories. Every bit of pathos is genuine, each syllable of dialect is impeccable, and the twin protagonists are expertly drawn. My Name is Grace is a quiet, beautiful masterpiece.

My Name is Grace book. Accustomed to reading lengthy historical books, I wasn't expecting more than a "fluff" read, and while I read almost all of it in a day it is certainly anything but that. This isn't a book for people who want a happy story, though it does end on a hopeful note. Told from two differing view points, Grace and Jude have such personalities that it is if two different authors wrote them. They seem so much like real people, with real flaws, that I found myself thinking "don't.

A wonderful, poignant story with excellent character development, brilliantly presented in diary form in authentic Glaswegian dialect. I felt such empathy with Grace and Jude. Not only did I get to experience their lives in Glasgow and Toronto, I learned of the suffering of the Glasgow tenement community during and immediately after World War II.
I want to read more novels from this author.

Beautifully written story. Did not want to put this book down. Love this author, can wait until she writes her next book!!

Initially set in World War II Scotland, the plot follows a young girl from the threshold of womanhood to a new country (Canada) as she searches for the man she loves. As is often the case, she realizes too late that he is hardly worth her extraordinary trouble. Along the way, she is forced to surrender her family, her way of life, and to some degree her self-respect. What she learns in her despair, she commits to a diary, to be found years later by another young girl whose life is altered for the better by it.

Born in Scotland in kinder times than those she commits to paper, Hanover reminds us that life in-the-not-so distant past was difficult, both because the world was fighting off the threat of global Nazism, and because medicine was largely adolescent. Her character Grace, does a good deal of bloodied sheet laundering---no automatic washers available in the Glasgow tenement basement, thank you, just manual agitation in boiling water---as a result of her father's battle with consumption. Yet, somehow she and her brothers are able to find ways of enjoying small bouts of childhood happiness.

Much of the stark atmosphere is a result of Hanover's excellent ear for Scottish dialect (abetted by her mother's memories) and its superlative and lyrical cadences. Nips 'n tatties, anyone?

In many ways this is an ancient tale, but one to be read as a necessary reminder by everyone who has ever felt the serpent's sting of uncaring, indifferent love---which includes just about all of us. But like most superb stories, while there is the unpleasantness of fierce truth, it is largely outweighed by the redemptive elements it passes along.

The first paragraph of this book had me hooked. A young girl, Grace, receives a diary from her father when she is evacuated with her brothers away from their home in Glasgow to the safety of the countryside during WWII. Her touching story is told through the diary as she grows up from an innocent and proud girl, falls in love, and has a family. It also follows Grace as her life falls apart and she tragically loses everything for love.

Interwoven with Grace's diary is the story of Jude, who is a teen runaway in Canada that discovers Grace's diary. She finds comfort in Grace's stories and is able to turn her life around with the help of her unknown friend during some very difficult times. The contrast of the two characters and how they ultimately exchange roles is heartbreaking and touching.

This novel is haunting, dark, and beautiful. It shows how a single wrong decision can change a person's life forever and how love can be so incredibly tragic. I laughed out loud and had tears in my eyes.

This author has a great voice and I can't wait to read her next novel. In the meantime, I wonder if she was listening to Adele's Rolling the Deep while writing this book (could be the soundtrack for the movie someday).

I gave "My Name is Grace" to my Mom on Mother's Day. She started to read it at 10 AM --and didn't put it down until she finished it at 11:30 PM! Like me, she found it totally absorbing from beginning to end.

Lorraine Hanover, whose novel is in part inspired by her own mother's wartime recollections, is herself a natural story-teller. She movingly evokes the Scotland of World War II, with all its hazards and hardships; her judicious use of dialect adds powerfully to the local flavor (a helpful glossary explains unfamiliar terms). The Grace of the title is one of the most sympathetic characters I have encountered in recent fiction. The joys and vicissitudes of Grace's adolescence and womanhood--recounted in the diary she starts as a child--are sometimes humorous, often heart-breaking, and always utterly believable.

Very highly recommended!

I'm not a big reader, so if a book doesn't grab me right away, i won't finish it. But i love his book!!!! i couldn't put it down. i started reading it in the middle of the week, which was a big mistake. i stayed up way too late on two "school" nights to read it because i couldn't wait to see what happened to Grace and Jude next. i totally agree with the previous comments! i love this book! recommend it to people you love!

This was an amazing read! I felt like I was experiencing the trials and tribulations right along with the two young women as they searched for something better from life. I couldn't put the book down and felt compelled to carry it with me until I was finished. I enjoyed the detailed settings and feel like I've been to Scotland and trekked all over Canada right along with the characters after reading the book. The story is skillfully interwoven between two lives and times and kept me in suspense the whole way.
