When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer With #Review

When Grace Sings (WaterBrook Press, March 2015)

When trouble roars into quiet Arborville, Alexa and Anna-Grace find themselves the target for discord and exposed secrets. Can they continue to seek the God of all grace amidst the fog of confusion?
Alexa Zimmerman wonders if the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville, Kansas will ever fully accept her. Her family roots here 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 amongst 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 the balance when Alexa and Anna-Grace have to face 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 REVIEW-I recently had the opportunity to review this new book by Kim Vogel Sawyer. She is one of my favorite authors and I have read all of her previous books. She has a knack for making even Amish books interesting:) This one is a little bit different and I found myself somewhat confused at times, just because there are soo many characters to keep track of and how they are all related. Still, it was a good book to read and I enjoyed it.

There are not really two main characters like in your typical fiction book but rather several. Some of whom are related in distant ways which makes for a fun storyline. Alexa is part owner of a bed and breakfast and probably my favorite character. Her strength of spirit is amazing. I also had a good laugh or two over her guests. They are quite funny and Briley is a hoot. Their first meeting you want to slap him but once you get to know him, you realize he isn't that bad. The Amish culture is very well played out and I felt like I learned some about them. An excellent book from Kim Sawyer!
