The Seasons of Grace is an unauthorized tale of Grace Metalious and her desire to tell the stories that no one dared to tell before that time.  From small town life in New England to the hustle and bustle of New York City and to the unforgiving film studios of Hollywood, Grace’s story unfolds. This is a classic scenario where art imitates life and so does this story. The young author is coping with literary and financial successes without realizing it. She was creating her own Peyton Place where she herself had to live.  
No novel had achieved greater recognition than her first; one out of every 29 Americans had read Peyton Place. They dog eared the pages, underlined passages, stuffed it in the back of a drawer or concealed it from the prying eyes of others. It was a true sensation, and the legacy continues to this day.    
The Seasons of Grace is a fictional account based on the author’s life; sometimes dark, sometimes shocking, but always authentic
