I've just finished reading Saving Grace, by Annie Jones. I received the book from Blogging for Books, Waterbrook Multnomah. It's the second in the Prayer Tree series. I didn't read the first so it's a stand-alone book but I did feel I missed out on a bit. As in real life, the characters had lives before this book came into being, so I guess it makes sense that life happened that I didn't need to know about. Yes? But the author does a good job in explaining things that needs explaining as things play out.
As the title suggests, the book revolves, sort of, around saving Grace, an old woman in the town who everyone stays away from and is scared of because of silly gossip. A group of very good women friends bond together through various antics, life moments, and prayers, and make a big difference in this woman, Grace's life. In saving Grace, they tie together their friendships for the long haul.
The book really is good. It took a bit to get into it but once I got each character figured out, I was truly hooked. I highly recommend it. It's a fun read plus it reminds us to not get sucked into gossip but reach out to people and get to know them. They just might surprise you!
You can find this book at Christianbook.com or Amazon.com.
