Set in Tucson, Arizona, A Small Saving Grace, is a tale of suspense with wry sensibilities, offbeat characters and just enough menace to make the reader wince and say, “No, don’t go there.” Life is in turmoil, yet against the odds, Andy, and those who love her, make slow, but steady progress. All the while, Andy’s attacker is stalking the entire household, searching for the right opportunity to kill his only living witness before she regains her ability to communicate.

A Small Saving Grace is full of suspense, but at its heart, this is a story of love, resilience, perseverance and healing.

—Gerry Hernbrode, author of Provincial Justice


G. Davies Jandrey:

G. Davies Jandrey (her friends call her Gayle) is a writer of fiction and a poet. A retired educator, she has lived in Tucson for more than thirty years.

For five seasons she worked as a fire look-out in the Saguaro National Park and Chiricahua National Monument. It was in these “sky islands” that she first learned to love the richness and diversity of southern Arizona. This double life, one spent teaching teens, the other focused on natural history, informs both her poetry and prose and provides the reader with an experience as complex and rewarding as the environments in which they incubated.

She makes her home with her husband, Fritz, in the desert outskirts of Tucson, Arizona. When she’s not writing, she gardens.
