A Story of Mystery, Mercy, and Forgiveness

As a volunteer worker in our church library I am always on the lookout for new authors to recommend to our most avid readers. Series authors in the genre of Amish fiction have become a favorite of many, so I was delighted to discover “The Touch of Grace Trilogy” by Beth Shriver. “Grace Given” is the second in the series. The story parallels the lives three women, each faced with unique hardships and demonstrates how they respond showing mercy, pardon, and forgiveness.

If you read the first title in the series “Annie’s Truth” you recognize the names John Yoder, and Annie Belier. “Grace Given” is based on Elise Kline, Yoder’s cousin.

From the first page to the last paragraph Shriver captures and holds the reader’s attention. Her writing is well paced with an absorbing well developed plot and believable characters.

Beth Shriver’s “Grace Given” adds a unique fresh approach and a deeper insight into Amish life and adds a touch of mystery.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
