Rue Shaw has everything--a much loved child, a solid marriage, and a job she loves. Saying Grace takes place in Rue's mid-life, when her daughter is leaving home, her parents are failing, her husband is restless and the school she has built is being buffeted by changes in society that affect us all. Funny, rich in detail and finally stunning, this novel presents a portrait of a tight-knit community in jeopardy, and of a charming woman whose most human failing is that she wants things to stay the same. Saying Grace is about the fragility of human happiness and the strength of convictions, about keeping faith as a couple whether it keeps one safe or not. Beth Gutcheon has a gift for creating a world in microcosm and capturing the grace in the rhythms of everyday life.… (más)

Enjoyed & am finally donating as I need to cull bookshelves before moving. ( )

The setting for most of the story is a country day school in California. Rue Shaw is the head of the school and the main character, but there are many characters: Rue's husband and daughter, the teachers at the school and their back stories, the children at the school and their families, the members of the school board, the history of the school, the history of other private schools. In fact, that was my issue with the book. The author would start revealing some drama about a character, it would just get interesting, and then that thread would be dropped and another one started with a different character. So I never became invested in the book and felt I was skimming along the surface of it. An unsatisfying read. ( )
