Product Description

She is safe, and she is free . . . but she is still alone.

Slavers burst into Grace Winslow's life with guns blazing and tear her family apart forever. She watches in anguish as her husband is led in chains aboard a tightly packed slave ship bound for America. An old enemy has a more sinister plan for Grace and prepares her for a different kind of servitude in London. But Grace will not be enslaved. And she will not give up on the man she loves. In her determination to be reunited with her husband, she finds God reaching out to her.

    I loved this trilogy. If you decide to read it, read all three in order. It tells Grace's story. She is of mixed parentage who's parents deal in the slave trade. She experiences many trials through these three books and keeps you interested. It's a very good story describing the life of a slave in several different instances. You will love Grace and her strength and her reliance on God.

    History matters. Not just the dates and the what-happened facts. Not just the famous names who made their marks on important documents. Ordinary people also contributed to our history—people who saw the need for change, who stood for justice when it wasn't popular to do so, who never gave up the cause for freedom. Kay Marshall Strom draws wonderful word pictures of people like these in her Grace in Africa series. Yes, of course her characters are fictional—but they are born out of painstaking research, out of passion, and out of a desire to communicate present-day conditions through stories of past struggles.

    The second book in the Grace in Africa series, Voyage of Promise, gives the reader a too-close experience on board a slave ship bound for England in the late 1700s. Being in the mind and heart of a man living this horror will change you. Our story's heroine, Grace Winslow—the estranged daughter of an African princess and a British slave ship owner—believes she will be reunited with Cabeto, her African husband, in London and live a life of happiness together, in spite of the murder of their son and being ripped away from all they knew and loved in Africa. Little does she know her husband is bound for the Americas—and no one in London, not even her own father, is interested in helping her. She unknowingly becomes embroiled in an unpopular anti-slavery movement, which turns sour and puts her in harms way—a place she has become rather used to. Grace is determined, resourceful—and, yes, sometimes impulsive and foolhardy. But she represents what is best in those who truly care about making a difference in our world. And she believes that she, like the biblical Queen Esther, was born "for such a time as this."

    If you love historical fiction, you will love this series. Be prepared to care again—to learn something—and to lose yourself in another place and time, at least for a few hours. Kay Marshall Strom never disappoints.

    If you haven't discovered Strom's action-filled writing, you're missing out. She paints her characters with depth and generosity and brings history to life. The faith element is subtle, but just right. I highly recommend the book The Voyage of Promise as well as the series.

    This is book two of this amazing series that all began with The Call of Zulina (book one). This story is set in 1792 and is so well written it takes you back to a time and place of long ago. We find ourselves in West Africa in the middle of a slave trade. We meet Grace Winslow as her life as she knows it is torn apart at the seams. Nothing will ever be the same for her. Grace is a dreamer and finds it hard to accept life as it is, but she is looking for all that it can be. I love the character of Grace. As her life around her is changing, she too is changing as we see the love of Christ through her. She finds that she cannot change everything, but there are some things she can, and herself is one of them. I found Grace a bit like myself, stubborn. We go from West Africa to London, and what an amazing ride this is for the reader. Kay has a way with the language, and shows such passion through her writing, that you feel as though you are right there with Grace. The voyage that Grace takes goes far beyond the oceans, but into her own heart where she begins to soar. I loved this story of love, freedom and change. I know it is one you will also enjoy to add to your collection.This book was a gift by Abingdon Press for its review.
