Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. ~2 Corinthians 5:17
It’s easy to simply sink into this book. I was drawn in from the first lines. I love the overall feel, timely dialogue, the 1880s backdrop, and the unique and pungent storyline.
Upon learning Theo’s cousins have been released from prison, and that they might be angry with him, I couldn’t wait to discover more him. Then there was Grace’s letter from Reverend Dille…and Earl’s notice of his early release… The story builds nicely and doesn’t lull or fail to keep my attention. Nicely paced, well developed characters, and a lovely message.
Grace and the Preacher, by Kim Vogel Sawyer, is a beautiful story that captures the essence of God’s grace and mercy, and its transforming power.
First Lines: “Hey Theo, didja hear the news?” Theophil Garrison paused with the pitchfork tines buried in the mound of hay and sent a sideways look at the barber’s son.
