This Book Room: Threads of Grace

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.


Additional notes: This is the third book in the Patch of Heaven series. You can read my review of the first book here and my review of the second book here. This is the last book in this series. 

My thoughts: This book starts amazingly. The story line is so riveting - my eyes were glued to the pages! I have to give up for the author - this book is definitely unlike any other Amish fiction book I've read. Once I hit the middle of the book, it started to drag a little, but it picked back up again. The ending, particularly the bit about Silas' brother, was completely unpredictable. If you're a fan of Amish fiction, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not read this series. If you're not a fan of Amish fiction {yet}, I would say to start with this series. It'll leave you wanting more and more and more!

Thanks to booksneeze.com for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
