When Grace Sings

When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Purchase a copy:

When trouble roars into quiet Arborville, Alexa and Anna-Grace find themselves the target for discord and exposed secrets. Can they continue to seek the God of all grace amidst the fog of confusion?

Alexa Zimmerman wonders if the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville, Kansas will ever fully accept her. Her family roots here aren’t what anyone thought when she first arrived, but she is hopeful that her culinary and hospitality skills will win the skeptics over. The bed-and-breakfast she’s operating needs to succeed so Alexa agrees to allow Briley Forrester, the hotshot reporter from Chicago, to stay as a long-term boarder not knowing his real motives for being amongst the Plain folk.

But when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna-Grace Braun, the presence of extended family brings out Alexa’s insecurities and sets Briley on the trail to uncovering a web of hidden truths.

Plans for a secure future and the sweetness of young romance hang in the balance when Alexa and Anna-Grace have to face that their secrets are interconnected, binding the two in ways they could not have imagined. They must trust in a loving, heavenly Father and His plan for their futures.



When Grace Sings is another beautiful story by Kim Vogel Sawyer!  The second book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy, this novel continues the emotional story that began in Book 1, When Mercy Rains.  Because of the family history that runs through this trilogy, I recommend reading these books in order. 

Kim Vogel Sawyer is a master storyteller who never fails to captivate me with her stories!  This story, like its predecessor, is told from multiple points of view.  I really enjoy this type of storytelling, as it allows me to truly get to know the characters and also evokes greater emotion as the story unfolds.  I loved reading Alexa’s story and revisiting familiar characters, as well as meeting new ones.  While the conclusion of this story answers some questions, there are others that linger and leave the reader in eager anticipation of the next release.  I enjoyed When Grace Sings and can’t wait to read the final book in this compelling trilogy!

I appreciate the opportunity to read When Grace Sings and offer my honest opinion.  I received a complimentary copy of this book through Litfuse Publicity.
