Here’s my review of a great, new Christian historical romance novel:
A Subtle Grace is the long awaited sequel to Ellen Gable’s book In Name Only. Often in books, as well as in movies, sequels disappoint. I must say, however, that this sequel surely does not disappoint! It’s a page-turner with autonomy – It can be equally enjoyed either as a follow up to In Name Only, or as a first experience of Gable’s work. Ellen pays attention to every detail, masterfully crafting the plot, as well as some interesting subplots. The reader is drawn in quickly and comes to genuinely care about the characters – including the endearing protagonist, Kathleen O’Donovan. The story addresses Kathleen’s turn of the century struggles of life, love and faith in a way that is relevant and never “preachy.” Kudos to Ellen Gable! This novel is sure to become a Christian romance classic.
It is available at Plot Line and Sinker, or at Amazon.com.
