Review: Threads of Grace by Kelly Long

Book Description

Grace's autistic son needs a life that is safe and consistent. Seth wants to leave his flirting days behind him and settle down.
Deep in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania, the beautiful and weary Amish widow, Grace Beiler, is not looking for a husband—especially one so much younger than her. But handsome and smitten Seth Wyse stumbles upon a way to help her and they marry to keep Grace’s autistic son safe from his ill-intentioned uncle.
Grace soon discovers that she is far from immune to her young husband’s experienced charm and realizes that her first marriage has not destroyed her capacity for love.
Seth Wyse seeks counsel from his older brother, Jacob, when playing the game of pursuing his wife becomes more dangerous to both his heart and life than he ever imagined.
Yet God can give Grace and Seth a passion for family and each other that teaches them the ways of the Master Quilter through the tangled and tender threads of their lives.
Threads of Grace is the third book in The Patch of Heaven Series by Kelly Long.  I have not read the other two books, but after reading this one, I would really like to.  I loved Threads of Grace!  I loved the characters.  Grace has had a hard life, but she adores her son and will do anything for him.  Her experience has taught her not to trust men, but little by little Seth works his way into her heart.  Seth is a man who can be trusted and wants to do everything he can for Grace and Abel.  I love the way he relates to and treats Abel.  This line in particular really stood out to me (Seth talking to Grace after Abel has a meltdown in public), " Someone talked to me this morning about grace.  That's what Abel's got inside of him, I think.  Grace.  I believe der Herr made him the way he is-not Silas Beiler, and not some kind of defect or mistake.  Gott made him an filled his soul with grace."
I love the story and the threads of grace that weave all through our lives and bind us together.  It is a really beautiful picture and a remembrance that God can and does work all things for good.
