An Uncommon Grace

Synopsis: Grace Connor, a military nurse formerly stationed in Afghanistan, hopes that moving to a farm in rural Ohio will help her recover from the ravages of war, and keep her teenage brother out of trouble.

When Levi Troyer meets Grace, he is at his most vulnerable. His stepfather has been murdered and his mother wounded by intruders. Grace saves his mother’s life and Levi is more than thankful. However, any relationship between them is forbidden by his faith.

Even before meeting Grace, Levi had begun to question some of the teachings of his ultra-conservative Amish sect. He has considered leaving, but knows he will be banned forever from having contact with his younger siblings and widowed mother—who need him to survive. Grace is struggling with trying to figure out how to live her life without the man she has grown to love. Meanwhile, a murderer must be caught. Will love and justice prevail?

Cafe Lily's Review:

I can’t remember ever reading an Amish fiction book with this much action and suspense.  The book starts off at a fast pace and was much different than any other book in this genre, that I’ve read.  I loved it!  

If you tend to shy away from Amish fiction, because you feel like you are reading the same basic storyline under the guise of different titles, get your hands on this book, you won’t be disappointed! 
Grace Connor stumbles into the life of Levi Troyer and his family and although they are NOT supposed to be attracted to each other, the independent English girl and the super conservative Amish boy find themselves fighting a very strong draw to one another.   I really enjoyed the way their lives continued to merge and conflict all through this story.  And I also enjoyed how the author quietly wove a murder mystery into the background of the romantic storyline.

Disclosure of Material Connection:

I received this book free from Howard Books.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
