Grace Given By Beth Shriver

In Book two of the Touch of Grace Series, Elsie Yoder can't forgive her sister for leaving the Amish community with the young man she was smitten with, and forcing her to deal with the locals alone who threaten them to leave. Can she work through her bitterness and humble herself enough to give and receive the grace she needs?

Beth Shriver received a degree in social work and psychology from the University of Nebraska. She worked as a caseworker for Boulder County Department of Social Services before starting a family. Beth's family live in Texas after moving from their first home in Colorado. She freelances for the local papers in her area, writes columns, devotionals, and novels in a variety of genres in both fiction and nonfiction.

 Oh Boy, I just LOVE Beth, she is one of the best Amish authors out there. I could not get anything in the house done for reading her latest book, Once you open it and start reading you will not put it down until the very last page.
I was hooked in her second book and very sad that I have to wait on Healing Grace book three in Touch of Grace series until this fall.
I loved Elsie and Gideon, and I am sure you will find them a great pair to spend some time with.
I give this book 5 stars only because that all say 5 stars is the best. I highly recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the author
