Trusting Grace by Maggie Brendan

Trusting Grace by Maggie Brendan

ABOUT THIS BOOK

All of her life, Grace Bidwell has longed for a loving husband and children, but now the chances of her dreams coming true are looking slim. Widowed and caring for her elderly father, she struggles to maintain her late husband’s ranch, until she places an ad for a hired hand.

Robert Frasier arrives in town with three pitiful, bedraggled children who have nothing but the tattered clothes on their backs and a load of hurt, pride, and anger. Believing this is divine intervention in her life, Grace welcomes them with open arms. As feelings grow between her and Robert, Grace will have to convince him that she is a woman who can be trusted with his heart.

Readers will be swept away into 1860s Montana’s lush Gallatin Valley, nestled among towering mountains and proud pines, in this emotional conclusion to the Virtues and Vices of the Old West series.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Wow! I this is definitely a book I will keep and read again! Grace Bidwell lost her husband much too soon and is left trying to take care of her sick father as well as their potato farm, but it gets to be too much for her. She places an ad for help, and it was there in Eli’s Mercantile that she meets Robert and his three children. All looking to be in need of clothes and food. With discouragement from the oldest child, Grace buys the children peppermint sticks after hearing their dad say they didn’t have money for the candy. This is when I fell in love with Grace Bidwell and her sweet caring heart.

Set in 1860’s Montana, Trusting Grace is truly what this sort is all about. As Robert works for Grace and her dad, and Grace spends time with him and the kids, the two begins to have feels for each other, and Grace had her work cut out for her as she strives to convince Robert they can be together. Graces Loves Roberts children and wants to be a mom to them. But Robert isn’t so sure.

I loved Grace’s character, with her sweet and caring personality, and the love she has taking care of her father. Robert had to go on me a bit, as he struggled through the issues he is facing. As Ms. Brendan weaves the together the lives of these characters, we can see the love, forgiveness and grace extended by God to all of them. I received this book from The Publisher Revell to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
