Threads of Grace
(A Patch of Heaven Novel)
By Kelly Long
Grace’s autistic son needs a life that is safe and consistent. Seth wants to leave his flirting days behind him and settle down.
Deep in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania, the beautiful and weary Amish widow, Grace Beiler, is not looking for a husband—especially one so much younger than her. But handsome and smitten Seth Wyse stumbles upon a way to help her and they marry to keep Grace’s autistic son safe from his ill-intentioned uncle.
Grace soon discovers that she is far from immune to her young husband’s experienced charm and realizes that her first marriage has not destroyed her capacity for love.
Seth Wyse seeks counsel from his older brother, Jacob, when playing the game of pursuing his wife becomes more dangerous to both his heart and life than he ever imagined.
Yet God can give Grace and Seth a passion for family and each other that teaches them the ways of the Master Quilter through the tangled and tender threads of their lives.
This is another enjoyable but sometimes very sad Amish fiction. With the little boy being autistic, it was different and interesting to see how the Amish mother deals with her child. Grace has really had a difficult life because of her abusive first husband, and then her child’s illness. But the way she looks at her child’s situation is very heartwarming because she sees him as a blessing, not a problem. There were a lot of emotions throughout the book because of the abuse, as well as when Grace cosiders remarring because she just doesn’t know if she wants to go through with another marriage.
If you enjoy Amish fiction, you will enjoy Threads of Grace. The characters are delightful, and the story moves at a pretty fast pace, keeping you interested. Pick up a copy for your enjoyment and entertainment!
