Book Review: Grace in the Shadows
Genre: Christian Fiction
Author: Christine Dillon
I was very fortunate to be able to review Grace in the Shadows, which is the sequel to a book I have previously reviewed, Grace in Strange Disguise.
Grace in the Shadows picks up where it left off in the first book, following the lives of the main character Esther and her friends and family.
I found this book very interesting and the full storyline was not at all predictable. There were times when i felt the story could have gone one way, but it didn’t – but I kind of loved that about the book – it made it original and authentic and not overly fanciful.
Once again what i love about Christine’s books is her emphasis on personal evangelism and sharing the good news with others. It’s something that i feel is really lacking within the Christian world today and something that is so vitally important.
I especially loved one thought that Christine brought out in the story, it really resonated with me as it’s something that i have personally experienced recently. It was when Esther was asking God to change Rachel and getting extremely frustrated with her. She soon realised she was the one who needed to change. Sometimes God allows us to go through situations with people even when they are in the wrong, to expose attitudes, prejudices and issues in our own heart.
Once again another fantastic book from Christine, definitely worth the read.
PS: this book made me cry…..and i haven’t cried reading a book for a very long time!
