Product description

Review

"In a pitch-perfect voice, Edwards captures Grace's struggles to understand the pain of those around her as she deals with her own, especially her desire to be loved unconditionally by her father. Grace displays a wellspring of compassion--for the homeless man who sometimes squats in her family's barn, for families who have lost loved ones and especially for her mama, whom she desperately wants back from the grips of depression. Like Grace, Edwards is the daughter of a preacher, and this write-what-you-know aspect lends This I Know a depth of feeling and honesty. Edwards' conversational style and the first-person diaristic tone create an enveloping warmth that draws the reader in."
--Bookpage

"If you're looking for good, old-fashioned storytelling, one that will pull you in from the beginning and never let go, this is the book for you."
--Historical Novels Society

"In this outstanding debut, Eldonna Edwards has created an enchanting, loveable narrator by the name of Grace Carter, who shares all she sees about her world and beyond. Rendered in a voice at once singular and exquisite and with an old soul sense of wisdom, I was captivated by this story of a girl and her unique gift, her love of family, the pain of loss, the sting of indifference, and the simple joy of acceptance, but most of all by Grace, and her purity of heart."
--Donna Everhart, author of The Education of Dixie Dupree

"A heartfelt and beautifully crafted coming-of-age debut about a gifted, eleven-year-old girl attempting to find her place in a confusing world. This I Know shines, due in large part to narrator Grace, one of the most authentic and charming young characters I've come across in a long time. Don't miss this one."
--Lesley Kagen, New York Times bestselling author of The Mutual Admiration Society

"Simply magical writing. Eldonna Edwards is a true storyteller. She tossed me straight into her book and there I stayed until the last word on the last page."
--Cathy Lamb, author of No Place I'd Rather Be

"Eldonna Edwards has crafted a compelling allegorical tale about the fear of otherness in this
coming-of-age tale. Readers of all ages will find an unlikely hero in 11-year-old Grace Marie Carter--who was born with a type of clairvoyance she calls the "Knowing"--as she bravely forges her own path in a world that is constantly trying to silence her voice."
--Amy Impellizzeri, author of The Truth About Thea

"A remarkable, inspiring story about clairvoyance, faith, and opening your heart--and mind--to the truth. I will not soon forget Grace Carter, the young preacher's daughter with a unique interpretation of the world. Her kindness, her resilience, and her gloriously quirky voice have me shouting to readers everywhere, 'I love this book!'"
--Barbara Claypole White, bestselling author of The Perfect Son
