When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer is the second book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy. In this series, the family secrets keep coming out. Secrets from both the past and the present revolve around the novel’s characters. It seems that everyone has something to hide.
In this novel, Alexa Zimmerman has opened a bed and breakfast in her grandmother’s old home. One of her long-term boarders is a journalist who has ulterior motives for being in Arborville. Another addition to the community is Anna-Grace, a cousin of Alexa’s, who is planning on marrying Steven.
Overall, this book wasn't as good as the first in the series. I enjoyed this book, but it was not one of my favorites. Maybe the next one will tickle my fancy more.
When trouble roars into quiet Arborville, Alexa and Anna-Grace find themselves the target for discord and exposed secrets. Can they continue to seek the God of all grace amidst the fog of confusion?
Alexa Zimmerman wonders if the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville, Kansas will ever fully accept her. Her family roots here aren’t what anyone thought when she first arrived, but she is hopeful that her culinary and hospitality skills will win the skeptics over. The bed-and-breakfast she’s operating needs to succeed so Alexa agrees to allow Briley Forrester, the hotshot reporter from Chicago, to stay as a long-term boarder not knowing his real motives for being amongst the Plain folk.
But when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna-Grace Braun, the presence of extended family brings out Alexa’s insecurities and sets Briley on the trail to uncovering a web of hidden truths.
Plans for a secure future and the sweetness of young romance hang in the balance when Alexa and Anna-Grace have to face that their secrets are interconnected, binding the two in ways they could not have imagined. They must trust in a loving, heavenly Father and His plan for their futures.
