#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:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
