Everything That Came Before Grace by Bill See

An evocatively crafted, heartfelt tale…

See explores longing of love, family ties, and a person’s struggles with mental illness in this moving story. Struggling with the trauma of a painful childhood memories and betrayal of the past, Benjamin Bradford, a veterinary technician, is trying to be a good parent to his only daughter Sofia. But an unexpected invitation to a wedding brings back agonizing memories of the past, shattering the carefully built façade of his present life. Both the portrayal of Bradford’s struggles with depression and the questions Bradford weighs about his own ability to take care of Sofia in the face of his family-run mental illness feel wholly genuine. Though Bradford is consistently self-depreciating, he is portrayed with an extraordinary degree of sympathy. The other characters are sketched with equal conviction. See depicts a realistic and relatable father-daughter relationship alongside an endearing friendship bond. The deeply realized characters and the emotional pull of See’s writing make this a must-read for lovers of literary fiction.
