Review: When Grace Sings
"When Grace Sings" is a novel about the Old Order Mennonites. Steven Brungardt inherits farmland he does not want. Briley Forrester is the smart-alecky protagonist, a tabloid editor, and he's trying to win the heart of the Mennonites. Alexa Zimmerman hosts a Bed and Breakfast where she serves peach/pecan pie. YUM!
A favorite pastime of mine is to read about the Amish or Mennonites. Sometimes I dream of what it might have looked like to live as one or the other. What would it look like to live without the conveniences of modern society? I learned that Amish women wear solid-color dresses and the Mennonite women wear floral-patterned dresses.
Author Kim Vogel Sawyer did a great job introducing each character. However, I didn't like how the novel jumped from character to character. The author did title each section with the characters name; but I just couldn't get into the novel. So, I must admit I did not finish the book. I may recommend this book to someone who enjoys Christian Fiction.
