A Christmas grace
Anne Perry
Adult Fiction PERRY

Comments  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Bestseller Perry's sixth Christmas novel (after 2007's A Christmas Beginning), one of the stronger entries in the series, explores further mysteries of the soul. A few weeks before Christmas, 1895, Emily Radley, the sister of Charlotte Pitt (last seen with husband, Thomas Pitt, in Buckingham Palace Gardens), answers a summons from Father Tyndale, spiritual leader of a small Western Ireland community. The Catholic priest is concerned about Emily's dying aunt, Susannah Ross, who's been estranged from her family since marrying outside their Protestant faith. Once in Ireland, Emily finds her aunt's entire village in the grip of fear, haunted by a secret. A shipwreck during a ferocious storm, the rescue of a young man from the sea's clutches and another young man's mysterious murder complicate Emily's mission. Perry effortlessly evokes the region's insularity and isolation while imbuing religious themes into a whodunit without being preachy. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Best-selling author Perry offers her sixth annual Victorian Christmas offering (after A Christmas Beginning). Emily Radley is drawn to a remote Irish village to care for her dying aunt. A violent storm looms on the horizon, and a terrible secret haunts the villagers. Will Emily solve the mystery and weather the storm? A slight tale that will appeal to Perry's fans; for all mystery collections. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 7/08.] (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
