About the Book

Finding faith can sometimes surprise you. In a suburban town in Southern England, Kitty’s life is turned upside down by a mysterious letter from a brother she never knew she had. Meanwhile—and quite unexpectedly—she encounters the enigmatic and brooding Yani Belushi, a pianist who is carrying his own dark and sorrowful secret born out of a fractured childhood in former communist Albania. 


An inherited ‘cello becomes the unlikely accomplice as their two worlds of music and adoption collide, each seeking resolution and discovery - with mesmerising results. Loosely inspired by real events, The Grace Note is about small things and big things: and which is which. It’s a tale of loss and redemption, an honest search for faith in the divine, and the realisation that - when all is said and done - life’s every day and seemingly tiny serendipitous moments can evolve into something underserved yet truly magnificent..’


“I am delighted to recommend The Grace Note. Jaqi has cleverly crafted a beautiful and moving story, which will linger with you long afterwards. A real blessing!”

—Mark Batterson, New York Times best-selling author of The Circle Maker


‘Such an uplifting and emotional novel that I couldn’t put it down.’

—Shara Grylls, wife of Bear Grylls

About the Author

Jaqi Anderson lives and works in Sussex, United Kingdom, and The Grace Note is her debut novel. She has taken to writing spectacularly late, partly due to her eclectic involvements as both musician and paediatric specialist; she is also mother to a disabled son. She loves all things rural and caffeinated, humorous and reflective. Having worked in a remote corner of Zambia with her medical husband, she now lives in an almost empty nest, although she has recently become an infatuated grandmother. She hopes that some of the proceeds from The Grace Note will support causes dearest to her heart—the orphaned and disabled in Africa.
