191 - Finding Grace: A True Story About Losing Your Way in Life...And Finding it Again; Donna VanLiere

Finding Grace, was picked up by me at the library on a whim.  I had enjoyed (3) previous books by this author in the Christmas "hope" series: The Christmas Shoes, The Christmas Blessing, and The Christmas Hope, and since the past year has been a trying one for me, I thought perhaps this book might be just what I needed --- yes it was.
In this inspirational memoir the author shares some devastating experiences, beginning early on in life, that would certainly test the faith of many women. It is a story about the "bumps in the road" of life that we are all forced to deal with at one time or another.  Beautifully written, thought provoking, but yet never preachy,  Finding Grace is a book for anyone who has struggled and asked the question "Why Me?", when bad things have happened to them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  5. Another memoir that sounds great! Having dealt with chronic illness these past 8 years in myself and my kids, I'm always interested in this type of uplifting/overcoming challenges memoir for inspiration! Thanks for the recommendation.

  10. I received an unrequested copy of this book several months ago, and I wasn't sure what to make of it, so it's been sitting on my shelf. I'm glad to hear you like it, and I'm going through a "why me?" period right now, so I think I'm going to dig the book out. Thanks for the review.
