5-Star Review of "Grace's Forgiveness"

Review of Grace's Forgiveness

by Molly Jebber

25489177

A handsome newcomer with secrets shows a yearning Amish woman a chance at happiness—but their love will need all their courage to keep . . .

Grace Blauch is skilled at midwifery—and crafting quilts that help others pass on messages of enduring family love. But a disfiguring birthmark keeps the young Amish woman from a husband and home of her own—until Mark King arrives from another community. His helpfulness and independent nature earn Grace’s respect. And he finds her outspoken ways and determination to do right irresistibly appealing. Soon Grace is planning a wedding quilt of her very own . . . until her father discovers that Mark’s shunned brother is hiding somewhere in town . . . 

Grace can well understand why Mark took such a risk once she hears his wrenching reasons. But she fears even prayer will not convince her father to restore his blessing on their union. She wills herself to face the end of her dreams, but sudden danger and an impossible act of generosity will show her that abiding hope can inspire the most precious of miracles . . . 

MY REVIEW:  Grace is a character to adore!  She offers forgiveness freely to all around her and yet she has a spicy attitude about her as well.   She is very realistic.  Even among the Amish, who do not believe in taking pride in one's looks, she is often ostracized due to the apple-sized birthmark that mars her face.  She longs for a husband and children of her own to love, but she fears that will never happen but then Mark King moves to town and he only has eyes for Grace.   Will Mark's wayward brother ruin their chances for love and a home and family of their own?  
        This story is one that is definitely believable and stirs the heart strings.   I rated this book 5 stars and am dying to read the third book in this series, Two Suitors for Anna.   I highly recommend this book and author to readers.
        I received a print copy of this book from the publisher and an ebook of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

A bit about me . . . .

I was raised in a small town in Ohio. If you had blinked twice, you would've missed it. It's grown by leaps and bounds. I've always found the Amish life interesting. I've enjoyed the many times I've visited their communities and learned about their lifestyle. Creating historical Amish characters and throwing them into difficult situations and joyous times has been challenging and fun. The greatest reward I've experienced in becoming an author is meeting wonderful people from all over the world who've been encouraging and supportive.
