Her name was Mary Grace until she fell in love with the French exchange student visiting her family’s Nebraska farm. François renamed her “Aglaia” – after the beautiful Third Grace of Greek mythology – and set the seventeen-year-old girl longing for something more than her parents’ simplistic life and faith.
Now fifteen years later, Aglaia works as a costume designer in Denver. Her budding success in the city’s posh arts scene convinces her that she’s left the naïve farm girl far behind.
But “Mary Grace” has deep roots, as Aglaia learns during a business trip to Paris. Her discovery of sensual notes François jotted into a Bible during that long-ago fling, a silly errand imposed by her mother, and the scheming of her sophisticated mentor all conspire to create a thirst in her soul that neither evocative daydreams nor professional success can quench.
The Third Grace takes you on a dual journey across oceans and time – in the footsteps of a woman torn between her rural upbringing and her search for self.
