Grace, a young spirited girl, longs to see her father again, and dreams that he is an African prince. Out of the blue, Grace gets a letter from her father, Tariq, with two roundtrip tickets to Gambia, West Africa. Grace and her Nana go out to visit Tariq and his new family, but things don’t go as well as Grace imagined. She is sad that her father is not the African prince she envisioned, and is disappointed that he has started another family. In the end, Grace learns to love her family in Africa, and learns that “family is what you make it.”

“Boundless Grace emphasizes the idea that a family is what you make of it – that family’s love can be as ‘boundless’ as a river, mountain, ocean – or even Grace’s imagination” – Minneapolis StarTribune
