Reviews

A tragicomic character that middle-aged women can celebrate . . . It's a tale of giddy love, thwarted ambitions, devastating loss, the dangers of 21st-century adolescence, the horrors of the menopause and how badly language can let us down . . . Littlewood writes with ferocity and compassion about Grace's all-too-believable agonies and the impossibility of spinning all the plates that modern life expects us to manage. Read it and weep (then cheer)

An exhilarating roar of rage, loss and redemption

I just adored this beautiful debut novel! Funny, moving and at times absolutely heart-breaking, it had me captivated until the very last page. An unforgettable read
*Liane Moriarty*

Amazing Grace Adams takes readers on a rollercoaster ride of female rage, loss and resilience. A rip-roaring, empowering story of redemption, discovery and starting over. And the more emotional moments are peppered with so much humour, you find yourself laughing and crying at the same sentence. Amazing Grace Adams is a glorious tragicomedy. The characters are wonderfully drawn and you'll applaud Grace for her amazing fortitude, compassion and warmth. Littlewood flips the stereotypes of menopause and middle age into something women can aspire to

The 10 Best Feel Good Books of 2023
*Washington Post*

Fran Littlewood has written a magnificent novel. Grace Adams is everywoman-filled with promise, trepidatious in love and eventually, a besotted mother. Amazing Grace Adams is a fully realized story of catastrophe and joy, grief and love, and the hidden chambers of the human heart that carry the best and worst of our experience. A stunning debut
*Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Left Undone*

Full of depth and honesty
*Prima*

From the first hot minute when Grace Adams, stalled in traffic, stuck in her car, simply opens the door and walks away from it all-into her day, the single day that gathers all her days up to this tipping point at the middle, she had me. How Life in the middle of our lives breaks us open-and apart-and then open again. I finished her story on a plane above the country, so full, and in tears. "Ma'am?" my seat-mate asked, "are you ok?" "Oh, yes," I answered. And gave him this book'
*Sarah Blake, New York Times bestselling author of The Postmistress and The Guest Book*

A redemptive story of womanhood, motherhood and marriage. You won't forget Grace Adams in a hurry
*Culturefly*

Brilliant . . . a story of a midlife heroine seeking redemption and so much more
*Woman & Home, Book of the Month*

I can't remember the last time I read a novel with such unbridled enthusiasm. Amazing Grace Adams is a raw, uproariously hilarious portrait of parenthood, love, and family; it's also a profound examination of the way language can both save us and fail us when we need it the most. I'd walk across London on the hottest day of the year with Fran Littlewood-hell, I'd walk anywhere with her. I'm begging you: read this book
*Grant Ginder, author of The People We Hate at the Wedding*

I laughed, I cried ugly tears, I rooted for Grace Adams. It broke my heart then reassembled it - as only a fabulous novel can
*Emily Koch, author of Keep Him Close*

An incredible debut. Grace Adams is fighting back and her story is both powerful and heartbreaking. I recommend.
*Julie Owen Moylan, author of That Green Eyed Girl*

Hugely accomplished. You'll laugh, cry and nod in recognition. Properly amazing
*Sun*

This is a redemptive narrative, conveying the complex midlife crisis, with humour and hope
*Take a Break 'Book Club'*

Family dynamics are well observed in a Falling Down-inspired tale of a mother's menopausal rage. Grace Adams is certainly a fighter
*Guardian*

Grace and her family feel brilliantly, dramatically real and believable, and she becomes a heroine to take to heart
*Apple Books*

Honest and relatable
*Sun 'Pick of the Week'*

An uplifting tour de force with a heartfelt message that will make you laugh and cry. It's the perfect January read. In her amazing Grace, Fran Littlewood has created an unforgettable heroine
