I laughed and I cried and I couldn’t put this book down. A brilliant story with a strong gospel message that makes this book a keeper.
Physiotherapist Esther has survived cancer, but wounds within her family remain unhealed. Is her revived faith the reason for the rift or could a simmering secret be the root cause?
Cosmetics consultant Rachel buried her past – and her father’s God – but the past refuses to stay buried. Will she continue to run or is confronting her pain the way to freedom?
Two women. One collision course with truth.
Can God’s grace shine even in the darkest of shadows?
Wow. If I could only describe my thoughts on this book using a single word, then wow is the word. I’ve read Grace in Strange Disguise (Book 1) and it was a good read, but it’s the collision course in this book of Esther’s continuing story with Rachel’s story that makes this book a compelling read.
I loved Rachel’s character, and I empathised with her as I learned more about her past. Rachel’s deep emotional pain is raw and real. It took great courage for Rachel to deal with the consequences of the difficult choices she’d made when she was younger. Esther’s life isn’t easy, and her strong faith is a shining light despite the problems in her own life and her frustration in trying to reconcile her fractured family.
I laughed and I cried and I couldn’t put this book down because I had to know what happens next. I highly recommend Grace in the Shadows to readers who are looking for a brilliant story with a strong gospel message that will challenge them to consider a Christian perspective on contemporary issues.
