a bit of grace

The random musings of Kate Grace


Burden of the Soul is a young adult novel that explores the abstract, and sometimes dark, strands of spirituality woven through our histories in a modernized and approachable way. It combines the different aspects of a textured life – love, loss, humor, fear, risk – to map a story where one young woman finds that the greatest power and strength imaginable is found within herself.

      I adore you for saying so (whoever you are)! The eBook is out right now for $0.99 on iTunes, Barnes and Noble and Amazon (the Kindle app for your computer or mobile device is free). The paperback with Book 1’s extended ending is coming to paperback in a few weeks. We’ll announce the specific date soon. Promise!

    I actually just posted a comment earlier about this book… Although I may be one of “those” who likes a clean ending (doesn’t mean tied up in a bow) or at least an ending that satisfies and answers some questions that come up when reading a book, I knew there was more to the characters in “Burden..” I am glad to hear that your original plan was to make this a series….the worst part is waiting for the next book but that adds to the excitement! Thanks for the great read…..

    Love the book. Got it on a whim from amazon. Amazing for such a young author. HURRY and get the next one out. I NEED to know what happens next. My 14 year old daughter fell in love with it also.

      Thank you so much for reaching out, Sherri! I’m so glad you and your daughter enjoyed it. Book 2 and 3 are both in the works right now (hoping to not make everyone wait as long between books after this), and there will be some bonus chapters released through the Summer to help everyone with the wait. Thanks again!
