Beautiful Healing story of Grace February 21, 2013
I loved this book!!! I will say that I have read many Amish novels recently and this one truly touched my heart. Grace suffered abuse at the hands of the husband she was forced to marry to save her family's farm and she needed healing. God gave that healing to her through the love of Seth. I have also worked with many autistic young people as a teacher and Abel stole a place in my heart quickly as I read.
I love that this novel is focused on grace....God's grace. We all need grace in our lives and so many of us have suffered abuse at the hands of others and this book can bring healing to those readers as well. For quilting and painting lovers and enthusiasts, read and see how these two crafts are celebrated among the Amish. Will painting as an art be allowed for Seth and Abel? Grace would certainly say yes, wouldn't it?
Review by Rhonda
Grace’s beauty almost cost her everything. This new start is all she has left.
When Grace Beiler was only a girl, she was married off to an older Amish man in order to save her family’s farm. Years later, she finds herself newly widowed and a mother to a young son. She has finally fled her sad past and plans to settle into a quiet life in Pennsylvania.
As soon as she arrives, she captures the attention of Seth Wyse, the most eligible bachelor in Pine Creek. Seth is candid about his feelings for her, and for her son Abel, but Grace is determined to protect her heart. Her determination falters when her brother-in-law reveals the troubling contents of her late husband’s will.
Seth offers Grace his hand in marriage, and thus a means of escape. But despite his having saved her from another loveless marriage, Grace is slow to trust her new husband. And as the months wear on, Seth wonders if he has made a mistake. But God is quietly at work in their hearts, and Seth and Grace soon discover that threads of grace bind them together in a tapestry rich in hope and love.
