In this middle installment of the Seasons of Grace trilogy, Grace decides to end her somewhat tentative engagement to Henry and concentrate her efforts to finding her runaway mother. With her father’s reluctant approval, Grace puts together the clues to her mother’s whereabouts. Grace has an almost sisterly connection to Heather, an Englisher seeking a homeopathic cure to her cancer. These two young women, each burdened with an almost overwhelming problem, bond together to help each other. This well performed audio version by Rachel Botchan only adds to Beverly Lewis’s compelling story.… (more)

I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

This is the second book in the “Season’s of Grace” series. Grace Byler is dealing with so much in her life. Her mother mysteriously left and didn’t tell anyone why. Something had been bothering her for quite some time. Grace is trying to help her father and around the house. Then there is Heather, a young English woman who finally confides in Grace. He lost her adoptive mom to cancer and now she has cancer. Her father wants her to take chemo like her mother, but she prefers to try naturopathy. She learns she was adopted from an Amish family and would like to find more.
Grace’s father is a quiet man and confused with his wife’s behavior. Their bishop is threatening to shun her if she doesn’t return soon. One thing Grace’s father is pretty sure of is that his in-laws know something about why Lettie left, but won’t speak of it. Grace breaks up with Henry and finds she suddenly has the attention of another young man named Yonnie. There is even a problem with this situation. Her best friends has eyes for Yonnie and is upset with Grace.

In my opinion Grace was aptly named. She handles all of these situations with grace. Nothing is resolved by the end of the book, yet you get a pretty good idea where this is heading and what some of the outcomes will be. Beverly Lewis has once again done an excellent job of creating a situation that will capture you and hold you until the end of the series. I definitely recommend this book.
