Jeannie Zokan

Jeannie Zokan, author of The Existence of Pity and award-winning Courage Without Grace, grew up in Colombia, South America as the daughter of missionaries. Her love of books led her to study Library Science at Baylor University. She moved to Washington, DC to attend The George Washington University, and much like Josie in Courage Without Grace, she became a palm reader there. DC’s cold weather finally did her in, so when the chance came to head south, she took her motorcycle to Florida’s Gulf Coast to write stories for the local newspaper. She now lives ten minutes from the beach with her husband, a dog, and a cat. When she’s not writing or editing, she’s reading, playing tennis, visiting their two grown daughters, or practicing yoga in their garage gym.

Courage Without Grace
Josie Wales doesn’t need her palm reading skills to know her lover is seeing someone else. It’s time to end it, but she’s been with Tom for seven years. And there’s something—someone—she needs to tell him about. That secret keeps pulling her back, but this time she’s determined to break it off. To find the courage to end the relationship, Josie seeks advice from new acquaintances, but she somehow manages to make an even bigger mess of her life. When Jack, Tom’s twin and her childhood friend, comes to DC to reconnect, he helps Josie get her feet back on the ground. Just as Josie is beginning to resolve the chaos in her life, a tragic secret from her past comes back to haunt her. Before she can move forward and have a second chance at love, she must face her grief and loss. With characters that leap off the page, Courage Without Grace is a poignant novel that will stay with you long after you finish reading.
