Publisher's Description

All of her life, Grace Bidwell has longed for a loving husband and children, but now the chances of her dreams coming true are looking slim. Widowed and caring for her elderly father, she struggles to maintain her late husband's ranch, until she places an ad for a hired hand.

Robert Frasier arrives in town with three pitiful, bedraggled children who have nothing but the tattered clothes on their backs and a load of hurt, pride, and anger. Believing this is divine intervention in her life, Grace welcomes them with open arms. As feelings grow between her and Robert, Grace will have to convince him that she is a woman who can be trusted with his heart.

Readers will be swept away into 1860s Montana's lush Gallatin Valley, nestled among towering mountains and proud pines, in this emotional conclusion to the Virtues and Vices of the Old West series.

    This book more than lived upto my expectations! It is my favorite I have to say of the Virtues and Vices of the Old West series. I loved the story of Grace and Robert, both widowed at a "young" age, a story of finding love and happiness again. It is also a story of Grace's father Owen, a widower himself also, battling a disease, but of finding love and companionship again with Stella who herself has never been married, and it is a story of 3 young children, Tom, Becky and Sarah, finding a home and someone to love them after their mother passes away, and you see the love developing between them and their stepfather and then Grace. The more I read the more eager I was to finish the book and did not want to put it down. I could see Maggie maybe in the future writing a new triology , with each book about the story of Tom, Becky and Sarah, finding love and a family of their own, with a flashback to maybe Robert and Grace's story, and Owen and Stella. ...and maybe of Opal, widowed at a young age, finding love again. There was excitement and drama in the book, from Grace's attack by a former beau, and Robert's rescue of her, from Sarah's near drowning, from Robert losing his farm, becoming a widower and a stepfather to 3 children he did not know existed, all at once, and then later having to make the choice if he should have the children stay with him or return back East with their aunt, etc. You also see Robert and his stepson forming a father /son relationship. I just really really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it. I did receive a complimentary copy from Maggie and her publisher for my review..and I would not hesitate to reread this book again, nor to recommend it to my family and friends and truly did enjoy it!

    I enjoy novels that have something unique to offer in characters or storyline. The hard part is often finding those that are different, at least until I have read them. This particular story pleasantly surprised me with a heroine facing many challenges and the authentic journey she experiences in an imperfect world.

    Grace's character provides an experience that is a bit different from many heroinesshe begins the novel as almost being too perfect, but just like the hero, we get to know her as the story goes along and we find out that she's far more realistic. She has a bit of a temper and is easily fired up by things relating to children, and she also tends to make overly quick judgments about other people. I appreciated these traits in her, both for the realistic way they are portrayed in the book and because I could completely relate to her struggles.

    This book shows the feelings and difficulties of someone with a chronic condition and the caregivers who love them. At times poignant, the story helps those who have not cared for someone with a long-term illness or disability understand how it impacts every part of life.

    Decisions must be made about care and other competing responsibilities, finding a delicate balance between caring for others and still maintaining the caregiver's health. I love the sweet way the characters handle both the helping and accepting of help, graciously giving and taking as need arises.

    Another area that resonated for me is the discouragement that can come from the troubles we face. Allowing fear and bitterness to take root can lead to depression, but giving those feelings over to God can help us not only survive, but thrive in the storms. Both the hero and heroine, as well as several secondary characters, have to make the choice in how to handle their emotions when faced with dilemmas; sometimes they choose well and other times not.

    This is a sweet western romance that will please fans of the genre. The added mysterious elements aren't too heavy, allowing the reader to focus on the romance that almost sneaks up on the hero and heroine. And those who care for an ill loved one or who are perhaps ill themselves will find encouragement here, especially as they choose life and joy over fear and bitterness.

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher but no compensation. I was not required to write a positive review and the thoughts expressed are both honest and my own.

    SUMMARY:

    As caregiver to her elderly father, young widow Grace Bidwell still hopes for children of her own someday and relief from her daily struggles. With Robert Frasier as her newly hired farm-hand, unbeknownst to her, he comes with a ready-made family of young ones. While managing the farm, Grace and Robert soon discover their hearts may need to be managed as well...

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Fun, light, romantic and filled with a bit of sass, award-winning author Maggie Brendan successfully adds to her Virtues and Vices of the Old West series with her newest book, Trusting Grace. Finding this novel as the perfect vacation and/ or summer read, it reads quickly, humorously, and is full of charm. Though perhaps missing some of the related characters if not reading the series in order, this story is fine as a stand-alone, too. Hoping the series continues, this book appeared at just the right time in life to enjoy.

    RATING:

    4 (out of 5) pennies

    Trusting Grace is the last book in the Virtues and Vices of the Old West series by Maggie Brendan. I didn't realize this was part of a series when I picked it up but it's okayit's perfectly readable as a standalone novel.

    This book really started off good. I was rushing through the pages, amused by Grace's quirky attitude. Truly, I thought this book was going to be an enjoyable read.

    Then? The last third of this book was one plot twist after another. It felt so contrived. From nearly being raped, almost drowning, spraining her footall the way to delivering a friend's baby that literally just popped out. Grace was put through every possible plot twist known to man in the last 100 pages or so.

    Grace was put through every possible plot twist known to man in the last 100 pages or so and it just ruined the story for me.

    Up until the end, the characters in this book were well-developed and likable. I just feel like the entire story derailed and that the author somehow lost focus.

    This book is okay...it's not the best I've ever read but it also isn't the worst. Would I read more by this author? Sure, I'd probably give her a try. Would I reread this book? No, not likely.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided by Revell Reads. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. All opinions are my own.

    Trusting Grace by Maggie Brendan is the story of Grace Bidwell, A widow who is struggling to manage her late husband's farm and care for her sick father. As the time approaches for her to have her crops planted, She decides that she needs to hire help or she may lose the crop this year. Like an answer to prayer, God sends Robert Frasier to her town and he is desperate for a job. Virginia Harrison (Grace's best friend) points him to Grace's potato farm and he is immediately hired. Robert is very weary of any female because his late wife had kept a huge secret from him until the day she died, So though he is extremely grateful to Grace for giving him the job, He is staying far away from her. He just needs to earn enough money to buy a place for him and his children so that they do not have to continue living inside their wagon. When Grace discovers that Robert has children and that they were camped on her property, She is ecstatic! She has always prayed for children and it appeared that God had sent three of them for her to take care of. Robert is pleased to see Grace interact with the children since they have all harbored bitter and angry feelings toward him and the world since their mother died. But now Robert is extremely frustrated, He promised himself that he would never trust another woman again but it appears that Grace is slowly finding a place in his heart. As the harvest approaches, Will Robert stay now that most of the work around the farm is done? Will he be able to overcome the feelings of mistrust and pride and find love again?



    So this is book 3 of the Virtues and Vices of the Old West Series and though it is part of a series, it definitely can be read as a standalone. I read the second book in the series, A Sweet Misfortune last year and this one was just as good! I love the relationship that Grace has with her father because you don't see good loving relationships between the children/child and their parents often, whether it's in books or on TV. The story started great on page 1 and though it was sort of predictable, it stayed interesting with some twists along the way until the very last page. I think the cover the of the book is very attractive ( I would love to have her dress) and the title was clever. Overall I think that it is a sweet story of learning to trust again and letting go of the past. I give it 5 out of 5 stars! *****



    I would like to thank Revell , A division of Baker Publishing Group for allowing me to review this book in exchange for a free copy, I was not required to write a favorable review, just an honest one.
