I remember when I was working in a country public library a few years ago, a young man came in and told me how one particular Bryce Courtenay book had changed his life. He was so emphatic and passionate that the memory stuck with me over the years. I had no doubt that his life really had been altered.

Fast forward to now. I’ve just finished watching the three series of Saving Grace starring Holly Hunter, and I think I’ve just had a glimpse into how that young man felt. I don’t know that SG has changed me forever but it has certainly had a profound affect – so much so that I’m struggling to watch other shows at the moment because they seem so insipid in comparison.

Something about the whole dialogue on “faith” and the wild, untamed nature of of Grace’s character pierced right through me. I think I’m still processing  exactly what that means. I’ll get back to you on it.

In the mean time, here is the trailer that’ goes with Everlast’s beautiful theme song.
