Grace after Henry by Eithne Shortall

  • Fiction
  • Romance
  • Life


Grace sees her boyfriend Henry everywhere. In the supermarket, on the street, at the graveyard. 

Only Henry is dead. He died two months earlier, leaving a huge hole in Grace’s life and in her heart. But then Henry turns up to fix the boiler one evening, and Grace can’t decide if she’s hallucinating or has suddenly developed psychic powers. Grace isn’t going mad – the man in front of her is not Henry at all, but someone else who looks uncannily like him. The hole in Grace’s heart grows ever larger.

Grace becomes captivated by this stranger, Andy – to her, he is Henry, and yet he is not. Reminded of everything she once had, can Grace recreate that lost love with Andy, resurrecting Henry in the process, or does loving Andy mean letting go of Henry?


| Review |

Grace after Henry is one of those books that you want to tell everyone you know about, as soon as you finish the last page. Thank goodness that I am a book blogger and I get to shout about it from the rooftops.

Grace’s life and heart are shattered into a million pieces when her soul mate Henry dies in an accident. Don’t worry I haven’t given anything away, we already know that from the title! We go with Grace on her journey as she attempts to kick-start her new normal.

As Grace takes the tentative steps of going through the daily life motions, she starts to see her newly departed Henry everywhere.  Is she going mad? Is she being haunted? You will have to delve into the novel to find out.

Dare I use the cliche that the book was an emotional rollercoaster? Yes, I really will have to as it fits the bill perfectly. The book is filled with heart-wrenching emotion but it is balanced with Eithne Shortall’s witty and uplifting humour.

Grace after Henry, really was a gentle nudge to remember what is exactly important in life. To make sure that those we love know it and to not waste a day with useless drama and unimportant nonsense.

A gem of a book from start to finish. Eithne Shortall is sure to become a firm favourite with the book lovers.
