Warm, insightful and poignant, Freeing Grace tells the story of David, curate of an inner-city parish, and Leila, his Nigerian-born wife. Unable to have children of their own, they're desperate for a family. When they finally hear they've been approved to adopt a baby, Grace, they can scarcely believe their good fortune. There's just one problem for which David and Leila cannot plan: Grace's birth family - the enigmatic, charismatic Harrisons. Enlisting their friend, the feckless, charming New Zealander, Jake Kelly - who's half in love with all of them, one way or another - the Harrisons send him on a quest that will force a confrontation.
Ultimately, each has a terrible decision to make. Everyone only wants what's best for Grace - but who can say exactly what that is?

Core story good diluted with too much added
I'm sure the book was good, as I enjoyed "After the Fall" but I could not listen to it because of the narration.
I do wish that most narrators wouldn't try to put on different voices for different characters. There are very few that actually pull it off. When they do it is brilliant. Kate Hood, sadly, can't. She is Australian and some of her accents were frankly horrendous. She reads well and so it is such a shame.
