About Me

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer Book Review

Alexa Zimmerman wonders if the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville, Kansas will ever fully accept her.  Her family roots aren't what anyone thought when she first arrived, but she is hopeful that her culinary and hospitality skills will win the skeptics over.  The bed and breakfast she's operating needs to succeed, so Alexa agrees to allow Briley Forrester, the hotshot reporter from Chicago, to stay as a long-term boarder, not knowing his real motives for being among the Plain folk.

But when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna-Grace Braun, the presence of extended family brings out Alexa's insecurities and sets Briley on the trail to uncovering a web of hidden truths.

Plans for a secure future and the sweetness of young romance hang in balance when Alexa and Anna-Grace have to face the truth that their secrets are interconnected, binding the two in ways they could not have imagined.  They must trust in a loving heavenly Father and His plan for their futures.

My thoughts - I was actually disappointed in this book, When Grace Sing.  There were a lot of characters which made it harder to follow.  I also didn't realize it was book 2 which might have made things easier if I had read book 1. The ending was weak and didn't complete the story but I imagine book 3 is in the process of bring written.  I really hate not being able to write a great review but the story didn't capture my attention like I was hoping it would.  

Disclosure - I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a review.  All opinions expressed here are my own.
