    Lets start with the cover I really liked the cover simply because I absolutely love crows A very simple cover with a blue background with light blue outlined crows and the top with one single black crow soaring in the middle of the book followed by light blue crows at the bottom The single black crow spoke loud and clear to me, I wanted to know why was this book titled Grace of Crows , I wanted to know what the symbolic meaning behind the one black crow.That single black crow was beckoning m Lets start with the cover I really liked the cover simply because I absolutely love crows A very simple cover with a blue background with light blue outlined crows and the top with one single black crow soaring in the middle of the book followed by light blue crows at the bottom The single black crow spoke loud and clear to me, I wanted to know why was this book titled Grace of Crows , I wanted to know what the symbolic meaning behind the one black crow.That single black crow was beckoning me to crack the book open, and I am glad i did.Let me start with saying one word that describes this book Beautiful Author Tracy Shawn takes the reader on an empathetic journey of self realization and a hope for the beginning of healing for her character Saylor Anyone who has suffered or has a loved one with anxiety can easily feel Saylor s struggles and understand where she is coming from Shawn drops the reader in the mind of a person suffering from anxiety and how she has to battle not only her fears, but be a mother, daughter, wife and friend Things that may come easily for some, but for Saylor, there is lots of work in these tasks The reader cannot help but admire her and I found myself many times pulling out my internal cheer leading outfit with pom poms and cheering for Saylor.Shawn had the ability to give the characters with small parts, such a presence Introducing Saylor s friend, Billy I immediately fell in love with Billy because he was simple and to the point Another character named Lenny, he packed such a punch with just a short visit She Shawn , left me wanting to knowof Billy And wishing Lenny was a real person.Another character that was pivotal in the book was Saylor s mother Erica Erica s character will have the reader on a truly emotional roller coaster.The best part and in my opinion the most important part of this book is how it makes the reader feel It may sound cliche but I truly was waiting to exhale as I read the book This book addressed mental illness in such a way that you get just a snapshot of what it could be like And that snapshot for me was a wonderful awareness

    If you re suffering from anxiety or if you ever have this really is the novel to read It s so cleverly put together, and I could relate to so much that the protagonist, Saylor, was facing I m very much familiar with fears about the future, anxieties about appearance, and worrying what others think All of this, and so much , is brilliantly described by Tracy Shawn.Recognising my own fears in Saylor, and understanding that they needed addressing, was probably the most important aspect I If you re suffering from anxiety or if you ever have this really is the novel to read It s so cleverly put together, and I could relate to so much that the protagonist, Saylor, was facing I m very much familiar with fears about the future, anxieties about appearance, and worrying what others think All of this, and so much , is brilliantly described by Tracy Shawn.Recognising my own fears in Saylor, and understanding that they needed addressing, was probably the most important aspect I ve gained from reading this wonderful novel However, I also loved the theme of self transformation that runs throughout the book, especially when it comes to finding tranquility and mindfulness in art and nature These really are lessons I need to remember to apply to my own life, and The Grace of Crows has done such a great job to remind me to do so For this reason, therapists would do very well to recommend this to anxiety sufferers as bibliotherapy I really hope that The Grace of Crows will encourage other novelists to discuss mental health, especially to reflect problems they ve faced themselves in the past I m sure that this, in turn, will encourage others to speak out about their anxiety something many of us could benefit from doing

    I think the author is a caught in the sixties or seventies when everyone was having eureka moments or an Oprah ah ha moment Some parts were touching and I identified with some of the dysfunctional family behavior mirroring some past awful memories I deal with anxiety issues, but this was, well, a story about Dorothy and gang wizard of oz The book ended on such a silly note Maybe the author got weary I can empathize I get that way, too Ho hum

    The Grace of Crows is a touching story about how our past defines us even when we don t understand it, and how acceptance of our flaws leads to freedom The discoveries Saylor made on her journey to overcome anxiety and mend her family relationships became my discovers and will stay with me.

    Overall it was a good book The plot jumped around a little bit, but it gave good information about how Saylor was feeling, and how anxiety is It made me sad when Saylor explained her childhood, but those were my favorite parts of the book because they were so emotional I m glad I read it.

    There is no perfect family This story is about a mother s anxiety and how it affects her and her family At first I wanted the mother, Saylor, to get her act together And then I could feel that her anxiety and fear were real As the story unfolds and both her mother and father s history is told it becomes a haunting backdrop to what is happening to her family Her journey to get break out of the pattern and help her family is courageous No spoilers herebut the book builds to the end.
