Book Description

She has only seven days to choose her destiny... Grace leads a fairy-tale-free existence in the rainy Seattle, struggling to provide for her frail mother and younger sister. But when a mysterious package arrives from her eccentric aunt, she is suddenly thrown into a whirlpool of unusual events.

Named the next "carrier of the gifts", she has only one week to sort through her supernatural inheritance or lose it all.

But in this story crystal slippers don't fit, "fairy godmothers" don't show up, and "prince" might not be so easy to charm.

As Grace blunders through unpredictable magic that challenges her beliefs and uncovers the wounds of her past, everything she holds dear is put on the line. Will she rise up to her true calling before the clock strikes midnight on her 25th birthday?

“Shelest weaves an incredible story of inner beauty, finding truth and oneself, and what it means to leave the world better than you found it. I loved Grace from the beginning, as she related to my nerdiness and desire to do something with her life but stuck in a job that might not have been her dream. Themes of family, love, and forgiveness are highly emphasized in this story. Not only must Grace discover her destiny, but figure out how to mend her broken family and broken heart. The Seven Lives of Grace is a fantastic read and I highly recommend to any girl struggling to find themself or their purpose in this life.”
