Grace's Forgiveness (A Keepsake Pocket Quilt #2) by Molly Jebber

About the Book


A handsome newcomer with secrets shows a yearning Amish woman a chance at halppiness--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 . . .

Review

Today I'm writing about Grace's Forgiveness.
I enjoyed this story a lot!!
Grace is a strong and determined woman. This, really liked about her.  I especially like that she was able to forgive a wrong that was done to her. At least this person that wronged Grace righted his mistakes with her her after not really listening to anyone in his community.
In a way, I admire the Amish way by turning the bigger cheek. This is what Jesus would have is do!! Sometimes though this is very hard to do!!
Newcomer Mark Jung has unknowingly brought some baggage with him. I like Mark too!!! I guess this where I disagree with some of the Amish laws about not getting the police involved.
It is instant attraction with Grace and Mark. It's like they were meant to be even though there are some trials and tribulations they must go through in order to appreciate each other more.
I'm so glad that they have a forgiving bishops most bishops aren't very forgiving. They are quick to Bann you from the community of you do something wrong.
This I don't think is very fair. There are going to many people who dont always agree on the same thing.
The thing is, the only way you'll go to he'll is if you dont believe in Jesus. He is the true Jung and the way into heaven.
Just because some people want to leave the Amish doesn't mean they'll go to hell.
Some of the rules of the Ordung are great though.
I do like how the Amish take care of each other in a crises. Like in Mark's case.
I also admire they way they grow their own gardens, plant the fields etc.
I don't remember reading any quotes in the book unless it's God is our refuge and strength in times of ever present and trouble. Amen for this. For without Jesus I don't know how I'd survive this evil world!!!
Molly you did a fantastic job once again. I will look forward to your next installment.
There are two things those I want to mention.
I've said this before I really really admire Graces willing to forgive even though the customers at her store turn away from her and doesn't want her to help them. If you're going to that then I wouldn't bother going in the store and buying stuff.
Grace is wonderful lady. I hope to be like her someday. I'm working on it though!!!
We also think that there might be a new romance going on. For Noah and widow Anna it is instant.
There are many surprises in this novel. I very strongly recommend this book for anyone who lives Amish romance.
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review
