A Subtle Grace – Great Reading!

2226I have a friend in Canada who writes great fiction.  Ellen is particularly gifted at writing Catholic, historical ROMANTIC fiction!  If you are looking for a compelling Spring read, you should order her book!  Her long-awaited sequel to  In Name Only is now available on Amazon Kindle at this link:

A Subtle Grace takes place in 1896, Philadelphia.  It is the continuation of the story of the wealthy and unconventional O’Donovan family as they approach the dawn of the new century.

At 19, Kathleen (the oldest daughter) is unmarried with no prospects. Fearing the lonely fate of an old maid, her impatience leads to an infatuation with the first man who shows interest. The suave, handsome son of the local police chief seems a perfect match. But will her impulsive manner prevent her from recognizing her true beloved? A disturbing turn of events brings a dark shadow that threatens the life-long happiness she desires.

Dr. Luke Peterson (the family’s new doctor) also makes quite an impression on Kathleen.  His affection for her leads him to startling revelations about Kathleen, about his practice, and most importantly about himself.

Will (the oldest son) believes that God may be calling him to a religious vocation.  Eventually, he discovers the hidden circumstances of his humble beginnings compelling him to embark on a pilgrimage to Rome.

This is definitely a book that you will not be able to put down!  If you haven’t read In Name Only, I highly recommend it, however, A Subtle Grace can be read and enjoyed solo – on its own merit as well.  As soon as the print version becomes available, I will post that link for you.

Here’s a brief biography of Ellen:

About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 10, 16 and 23. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!
