When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer ~ Review

When Grace Sings (The Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy, #2)Lucie's Review:

Picking up where the last novel left off, Suzanne and Alexa have made peace with their family and have found a home among the Old Order Mennonite. But things are never quiet for long, when Paul finds out that he is the father of Anna-Grace, he is angry with Suzanne for hiding her pregnancy from him, and he want's to make his identity known to Anna-Grace.

Meanwhile the first guest at the bed breakfast, is Briley Forrester, a reporter determined to expose the scandals and secrets of the Mennonites, and show another side to them from their pristine image.

Meanwhile Steven wants to be a teacher, but feels pressured by his family to be "Perfect son" and be a farmer like his father wants. Will he find the courage to go after what he wants?

Another family drama,that examines the relationships between the characters an how they learn to love and accept the family that God has given them. A continuation of the Zimmerman tale, as secrets are exposed and hearts laid bare.

Overall a well written novel that continues the story started in the first book of the series. In some ways it felt more like a filler book between the beginning and the end. I liked that it wasn't  romance and instead explored the various relationships within a family. There were strong characters in this heartfelt story.

About the book:

When Grace Sings (WaterBrook Press, March 2015)

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.
