This touching book has a tight, though slightly repetitive, focus; it fluidly leads the reader from one event to another, and each thought to the next. It is an easy story to follow and effectively whisks you away from city life and into the Amish world of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Jessica and Lindsays relationship is characteristic of typical American teenaged sisters, and many readers will relate to the irritation tempered with love that the two exhibit toward one another. Rebeccas yearning to show her nieces proper love and direction is sincerely empathized with by readers, and the strife between Becky and her husband Daniel is keenly felt. The best scenes, however, are those involving Rebecca and her mother-in-law, Elizabeth Kauffman. Elizabeth is the voice of experience and wisdom, speaking gently to the heart of the devoted but stubborn Rebecca. Elizabeth exudes godliness and her words reflect Gods peace; as Rebecca tries to guide her nieces, Elizabeth lovingly guides Rebecca.
Rebeccas sister, Grace (for whom the book is presumably named) and her husband are killed in a car accident, leaving their daughters, Jessica and Lindsay, without parents or home. In her will, Grace requests that Rebecca and Daniel rear the girls in Graces childhood home of Lancaster County. The trouble arrives as Jessica and Lindsay are informed that they are to respect and uphold, to a certain extent, the simplistic, but unfamiliar Amish lifestyle. Lindsay adjusts famously after a few months, but despite many attempts, Jessica cannot develop fondness for a community which denies her desires for education and the freedoms to which she is accustomed. The Kauffmans must discover a way to close the wounds of loss and listen to the Lords will without driving loved ones away and destroying their family name in their society.
A Gift of Grace is a fantastic book for preteen to teenage girls. It has value for those who have struggled with guardian-to-child relationships, those whove lost family members, or folks who have ever wondered about their place in life. Clipston gets an A for reader relationships and substance, integrating a genuine road to God as the answer and provider. Highly recommended. Hannah Selleck, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

I can't wait to read "A Promise of Hope" to see how the their lives continued. I highly recommend this series. You will be a part of the Kaufmann lives before you know it.

Sarah OCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love of GraceMay 1, 2012Sarah OCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is the first book in the Kauffman Amish bakery series. This book I do have to say was pretty amazing and hit close to home for me. I can relate to the main character Rebecca. The story starts off this Rebecca getting custody of her two teenage daughters after there parents die. In the many books that I have read and the stories I have heard about the Amish they forgive no matter what, they believe its God's will. In this book that is the same however it also deals with the loss of not being able to become pregnant and how she struggles with it, and how she feels her husband is upset over this. I personally have been dealing with my struggles on pregnancy so when I read this I felt like God was using this book to bring me comfort in his way and its his will not ours.
This book also talked about forgiveness and really listening to God and what he has to say. Now Amy had the mother in law in this book keep saying, "Are you listening to God?" and I have not really thought about that are we really listening to God or are we listening to our hearts, and thinking its Gods voice we are hearing. In the book Rebecca is left to figure that out and as she struggles with that there are trials that come up that she has to deal with and work through all while trying to stay still and listen to Gods sweet voice.
I would recommend this book to just about anyone and if you are dealing with loss or struggling to sit still to listen to Gods voice then I believe you will find comfort in this book. I also like how the author has included many recipes in this book.
