Grace's Forgiveness by Molly Jebber

A handsome newcomer with secrets shows a yearning Amish woman a chance at happiness—but their love will need all their courage to keep . . .

Grace Blauch is skilled at midwifery—and crafting quilts that help others pass on messages of enduring family love. But a disfiguring birthmark keeps the young Amish woman from a husband and home of her own—until Mark King arrives from another community. His helpfulness and independent nature earn Grace’s respect. And he finds her outspoken ways and determination to do right irresistibly appealing. Soon Grace is planning a wedding quilt of her very own . . . until her father discovers that Mark’s shunned brother is hiding somewhere in town . . .

Grace can well understand why Mark took such a risk once she hears his wrenching reasons. But she fears even prayer will not convince her father to restore his blessing on their union. She wills herself to face the end of her dreams, but sudden danger and an impossible act of generosity will show her that abiding hope can inspire the most precious of miracles . . .

"Endearing characters and a delightful story make this a keeper for fans of Amish romance." --Emma Miller on Change of Heart

Molly JebberAbout the Author

Molly Jebber enjoys writing stories about Amish history and their culture. She’s a Women’s Christian Connection motivational speaker and enjoys meeting new people. She was raised in a small town in the Midwest, and insists if you had blinked twice, you would've missed it. She loves God, her family and friends, sunshine, swimming and traveling to the Amish communities.  Creating historical Amish characters and throwing them into difficult situations and joyous times has been challenging and fun for her. The greatest reward she’s experienced in becoming an author is meeting wonderful people from all over the world who've been encouraging and supportive.

Here's what I thought.....

Grace is considered a spinster almost, in the Amish community. She is a midwife and is co-owner of a store in the town of Berlin, Ohio. She has a very noticeable birthmark on her face that causes many people to act rudely toward her and is the reason she has not been married.

Mark King is the "new guy" in town and has decided he will open a store next to Grace's. Mark is a good man who never notices Grace's birthmark and only sees her for who she is, not what she looks like.

Most of this story is sweet and kind with a touch of mystery and suspense. The storyline is great. All of the characters are done well. Grace is so very sweet and kind even to those who are unkind to her because of the way she looks. Even though she gets discouraged sometimes, she always trusts the Lord to help her and comfort her. Mark was a great example of truly loving someone for who they are on the inside and not what they look like on the outside. I also enjoyed the character of Grace's Mamm. She was a very sweet lady who always tried to support Grace.

Amish Christian fiction is one of my favorite genre's. I picked this book because I really enjoyed Molly's novella in a Christmas book that I reviewed last year. This book kind of surprised me in the fact that the writing was quite different than the novella I read. I very much enjoy the plot of this book and most of the characters, but the dialogue in the book is very choppy. I really wanted more in the conversations and interactions between the characters. That being said, this is a sweet story with a sweet ending and will leave you smiling and happy for the characters. If you are looking for a light read that makes you smile, this is for you.
