Ruth and her cousin Naomi live in rural Wisconsin, part of an isolated religious community. The girls' lives are ruled by the rhythms of nature - the harsh winters, the hunting seasons, the harvesting of crops - and by their families' beliefs. Beneath the surface of this closed, frozen world, hidden dangers lurk. The Ruth learns that Naomi harbours a terrible secret. She searched for solace in the mysteries of the natural world- broken fawns, migrating birds, and the strange fish deep beneath the ice. Can the girls' prayers for deliverance be answered? Sufficient Grace is a story of lost of innocence and the unfailing bond between two young women. It is at once devastating and beautiful, and ultimately transcendent. 'Simply brilliant. Haunting, gritty and emotionally dark.' Jessica Au 'A novel of heart-rending beauty. Seldom have grace and nature, spirit and flesh, spoken to each other so wonderfully.' Michael McGirr
