#116: The Way of Grace - Cathy Bryant

(Affiliate link)

From Amazon:
In pursuit of justice, in need of grace  . . . A justice-seeking perfectionist pursues her dream of a perfect life in her hometown of Miller's Creek, Texas. Sidetracked by her desire to be a prosecuting attorney, Grace Soldano launches into uncharted waters, making herself over to please her boss and mentor. Then a disheveled free spirit turns her perfectly ordered world upside down, challenging the concept of personal goodness. A fall from perfection leaves her teetering between vengeance and grace, caught in a deadly crossfire that leaves her dreams in a heap of ashes. Can she learn to joyfully accept the life God has given her--far from perfect--but one completely immersed in His grace?

My Opinion:
 This book I took my time reading. Really absorbing every word, the settings, the dialogues. Savoring bringing the whole of Miller's Creek together in one book. The first two books in the series, each seem to focus on a major character and their lives within the community. The third book does that too but also brings the characters from the first two back. People who have read the series will agree on how cool that is. Now, as I said, it does focus on one person at times, and in this book it was Grace. Ironic, right?! She was a lovable character in so many ways, though I wish she knew her own worth a little sooner. I hated seeing bad things happen to her, but she was one of those characters that sort-of did it to herself.
 This was a great way to bring the series together. It had great moral content, and I loved the open dialogues with God. That's the kind of stuff that makes me feel good when I read it.

5/5

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
