Grace and the Preacher is the newest novel by Kim Vogel Sawyer, set to release in March of this year.
Grace is twenty-four, an old maid for her era, and longs to meet the new preacher she has been corresponding with and whom, she discovers, she has already fallen in love with. Would he possibly be drawn to her as well when they met?
Theophil long ago stood up for truth, but in the process, created some mortal enemies, who are now hunting for him. On the run, Theophil finds himself meeting a random person who seems to be the perfect one to help him out of his problems. Soon enough he ends up in the same town in which Grace lives.
While aspects of the book were cliched, and I did predict almost all critical plot twists, the author still had me turning the pages, curious to find out what would happen next. She delves into themes of forgiveness, mercy, trusting God above even your heart’s greatest desires, honesty, etc.
Even though Grace and the Preacher does not make my Top 10 list, I enjoyed it and I intend to look into other books by the author. Read more about the book and author here.
Note: I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
