Product Overview

Grace has always had wild red hair like no one else in her family and a birthmark on her shoulder that her mother told her was the mark of an angel. When Grace is sent from New York to spend the summer with her grandmother in Trinidad, she looks through the family album and discovers a blurred photograph of a stranger with a birthmark -- "her" birthmark -- and Grace is full of questions. No one is able to identify the man in the photo, and Grace is left with no choice but to find out who he is and what he might mean to her. What Grace does not know is that her search will lead to a discovery about herself and her family that she never could have imagined.

Tracey Baptiste''s first novel is a tender coming-of-age story set on the island of Trinidad. "Angel''s Grace" explores the meaning of identity and truth, and the unbreakable ties of a family bound by love.

From the Publisher
Annotation Grace, with unruly red hair and an unusual birthmark, stands out from the rest of her family. When she is sent to stay with her loving, protective grandmother in lushly tropical Trinidad for the summer, she initially counts the weeks until she can return home to her friends in Brooklyn. But when Grace discovers an old photograph of an unidentified young man with a birthmark exactly like hers, the summer begins to hold unexpected promise.
