The perfect book to curl up with on a cold, snowy day. The warmth of the characters grip you from the first page and don't let go until the end.
This was the first book I read by Shelley Shepard Gray and I quickly searched for more. Her books are wonderful stories filled with people who value family, friends and faith. This is a great book to read during the Christmas season or anytime of the year.
I just finished Shelley Shapard Grey Sisters of the Heart series #1 Hidden, #2 Wanted, #3 Forgiven and #4 Grace. From the turn of the first page to the last I never put them down. Each book lead me on a walk of faith, hope and love journay I hated to see the last page because Shelley keep my attention with a love that was hidden, but longed for in each of her books. Grace was a book where two hearts that were scared to allow to form until that special moment that they listen to the Lord. Amazing book series each book can stand alone but I recommend that you read each book. Shelley is an amazing author. I LOVE HER BOOKS
Review: Grace - A Christmas Sisters of the Heart Novel - Shelley Shepard Gray- Oct 2010
Wanting a lovely christmas novel to read , though it's not Christmas - I could use the excuse of reading it as a pre- mid winter festive , as we start to move into Winter in New Zealand , which is when it in some places snows as our Christmases are met with the hot sun , swimming at the beach, bbq's , playing cricket outside.
In Grace we see our favourite characters from the previous books preparing for a fun filled holiday season as many around know that over the christmas period the Brennaman Bed and Breakfast is closed for the holidays . We see Katie and Jonathon celebrating their first christmas with their newborn son Stefan , we see Henryand Anna as well as Winnie and Samuel all preparing to spend time together. However , things aren't always planned for in their small town as not one but two guests arrive on the 20th December . We see the arrival of Melody , a shy and scared young women who is about to give birth and Levi - a man whose wife died in Childbirth due to his decison against blood transfusion. As we read on in Grace , we see that both the newcomers have past secrets that they are trying or hoping to escape from. Will they both find peace in their short stay at the inn and will their be romance in the air develop as a new babe is born .
