The Way of Grace by Cathy Bryant
Having loved the first two Miller’s Creek novels, I was excited when Cathy offered me a chance to review “The Way of Grace”. With her usual well-rounded characters and down-home setting, Cathy has delivered a winner once again.
Heroine Grace Soldano has become a lawyer because of her desire for justice but her inexperience and personal prejudice have clouded her judgment somewhat. She quickly finds herself unwittingly drawn into a confusing web of deception that places her in danger. When she attempts to secretly help her friend under her own power, she soon finds herself in deep trouble and the object of scorn.
Matt has loved Grace for a long time but realizes that he is not the kind of man she wants. Determined to win her love, Matt continues to support her with his friendship even when others turn their backs on her. He demonstrates unselfish love toward Grace even after he has given up nearly all hope for a future with her.
“The Way of Grace” has several things going for it – a well-paced plot with true-to-life characters, a good blend of suspense, drama, and romance, and a solid biblical message that plainly illustrates the true meaning of grace. The story does not have a happy-ever-after fairytale ending but the end is satisfying all the same. As with Cathy’s previous novels, I would heartily recommend “The Way of Grace”.
This book was provided for review by the author.
A justice-seeking perfectionist pursues her dream of a perfect life in her hometown of Miller’s Creek, Texas. Sidetracked by the desire to be a prosecuting attorney, Grace Soldano launches into uncharted waters, making herself over to please her boss and mentor. Then a disheveled free spirit turns her perfectly ordered world upside down, challenging the concept of personal goodness. A fall from perfection leaves Grace teetering between vengeance and grace, caught in a deadly crossfire that leaves her dreams in a heap of ashes. Can she learn to joyfully accept the life God has given her–far from perfect–but one completely immersed in His grace?
