Blog Tour! Grace by Shelley Shepard Gray

Posted on

It’s Christmastime at the Brenneman Bed & Breakfast, and everyone is excited about closing down for the holiday.

Anna and Henry will be celebrating their first Christmas as a married couple, and for Katie and Jonathan Lundy, it’s their first Christmas with baby Stefan. Winnie and Samuel Miller plan to stop by as well for a wonderful two weeks of family and rest.

But when two unexpected visitors show up, hoping to stay for Christmas, the family must test their commitment to hospitality. Levi is a widower who lost his wife four years ago and can’t bear the thought of another Christmas alone. And Melody is a young pregnant woman who won’t open up about how she ended up on her own at Christmas at almost nine months pregnant.

Anna, who knows a thing or two about keeping secrets, doesn’t trust her, and strives to find out the truth about these two strangers who have disrupted their holiday. But as the Christmas spirit descends on them all, as well as snow that traps them in the inn, a healing and hopefulness takes over, allowing new relationships to be built, and the boundaries of family to be extended.

I’m really excited to read Grace.  Just the cover alone puts me in a holiday mood! 🙂 It makes me want to pour a cup of hot chocolate and sit by the fire as I read.  Just FYI, the book includes Amish recipes, a letter from the author, discussion questions, and a teaser from Shelley’s new Amish series, Families of Honor. Once I finish the book, I’ll let you know my thoughts on it. For now, I’ll just say that it’s on my list of books to read during the Christmas season!
