A good story with a challenging message, Saving Grace really got you into the mindset of Natalie and Linn, but I felt that the male lead was lacking, or at least that you don't get to know him as well as you wish. Enjoyable read, even though it is (as per usual with Denise Hunter) very emotionally heavy.

Like the other two books in the series this book had the running theme of forgiveness and was very deep emotionally. Maybe accidentally starting from the last book in the series ruined it for me because I already knew what happened to all the characters, it was interesting to see how they got there though. A lot of difficult topics were addressed in the book which I commend the author for.

Book 2 was just as inspiring and compelling as the first one. Dealing wth difficult issues of life, we walk with the main character as she wrestled with the issues and discovers her strength through faith. On the book 3!

Earlier book by this author and it was not a good one. Lots of coincidences, poor character development, and very juvenile writing. Not recommended.

Did not enjoy this as much as the first in the series. It was just ok and very predictable.

What an amazing story of forgiveness, grace, and love. God’s mercy, grace, love, and strength shine through this wonderful story!

After reading book 3 of this series over a year ago, I finally decided to find the first 2. It's been long enough that I wasn't really familiar with the other characters, yet I knew the final outcome for Paula & David, who we are introduced to in book 1, and well and truly thrown into their world in book 2. It's been an interesting series - quite different from others Denise has written. They all tell a story of 1 of 3 sisters, who live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Some serious subjects are cov ...more

I am so glad this is the first book I read in this series because the whole series has way too many ridiculous coincidences in it. But this book standing alone is very good. It's a highly unusual situation for sure, but taken alone it is possible. Amazing story of forgiveness and kind of asks the pro-lifer how far s/he is willing to go to save a child's life. Although there were defintely some breaking of crisis pregnency center rules in here so I hope readers realize it was fictional. There is ...more

Dit is het 4de boek dat ik lees van Denise Hunter...deze vond ik iets minder dan de anderen. Het eerste deel wilde niet vlot lezen...maar na de helft begon het verhaal eindelijk zijn doel te vinden. De laatste pagina's waren spannend en het lezen ging vlotter. Eindoordeel: toch nog een mooi verhaal met een goed einde.

This is a sweet and romantic story that has a lot to say about God's forgiveness and how to put our feet where our faith is. But every time I read a good novel about these subjects I long for some real life stories about it. No question that God can work forgiveness of this profound nature, but where are the real life testimonies about it?

I love her books! This one did not disappoint...she accurately portrays the emotions of individuals as they are faced with the consequences of their own actions or the actions of others. You identify with her characters and understand the process their emotions go through as they work through a situation.

My first read from this Christian author, on loan from a friend who has read the entire series. This was a nice, easy read with a good story line...and not as "sugar-sweet" as I anticipated. Real life situations, nicely written. Would not be my choice in a book store, but enjoyed it none-the-less.

This was a wonderful story, made better by the pregnancy center in the book. I like how real the main character is and that she made mistakes but was able to pull through in the end. Just like real life people. The book was not what I was expecting, but I loved how it turned out.

This was the first I've been by this author and I really enjoyed it. After reading it I realized this was the second in the book series, but I was able to follow the story anyway. I'm looking forward to reading the first and third book in the series to continue the story of the family.

Enjoyed the book, not nearly as good as Mending Places. Looking forward to reading another Denise Hunter book. Dealt with the issue of abortion with prayer and empathy. Not quit as good as Karen Kingsburys Shades of Blue. Good book though.

Pretty good! Liked the emphasis on family and life and serving the broken. Could've done without some of the Christian life angst, but oh well. Wish I'd realized this was #2 in the series before I read it. Now I have to go read #1.

I picked this book up at a book sale and had never heard of the author. This was a really good book and a great story line. I look forward to reading more of her books. Her writing style puts me in mind of Nicholas Sparks
