Faith.

A short novella that gets straight to the point of the story. I liked both of the main characters in the book . I felt that Noah was sent to be hana's eyes and ears for her as she couldn't be there for lillian. My favorite part of the novel was the dove scene. ...more

Was given, By the Grace of You, directly from the author, for an honest review, no compensation was given. Sometimes books that deeply touch your heart and soul are very difficult to review. This novella is one of those books. Be prepared to smile a bit and to tear up a bit. By the Grace of You is well written and the author does a very good job with character development. This is the story of Lilli, who suffers a great loss in her life and how she loses her faith in God because of this loss. It ...more

Short story about Lillian finding her trust in God again. The story starts with her not wanting to let go of her sister and she blames God for taking her sister away too soon, she struggles with her faith even though she feels guilty for turning her back on God, then she meets Noah and he helps her find her faith again, a sweet love story too but it’s too short I didn’t want it to end so soon but I guess it ended because Lilian was healed and she found her faith and grace by the ones who love he ...more

I just loved this sweet novella. It was full of faith, love, and, most importantly, hope. It brought tears to my eyes, and it takes a lot to do that. Lilli, the main character, load someone important to her. I’ve lost someone close to me this year, and I can say that the emotions were accurate. I wish I’d read this earlier. It’s not a corny, cheesy story. It’s something beautifully crafted that you can tell the author spent her time on. I love how it focuses on how losing someone can make you dr ...more

It was definitely worth the read and I enjoyed the quick story, if you have an hour or two then this could easily be read during that time.

The quick story that almost felt like a prequel for a future book. I enjoyed the characters and loved reading the power healing and acknowledgement that everyone heals differently. Plus the sweet little romance that didn't over power the story but help to mold it.

Lillian lost someone in her life and starts questioning her faith and God. She goes down a dark path, not letting anyone in. Noah shows up and befriends Lillian, all the while bringing her out of darkness and into the light. Lillian and Noah make an awesome couple.

This book is a reminder that no matter what happens in your life, there will always be that one special person who will be there for you through anything❤

This novella was about loss and giving up on faith. Lillian has always been a believer in God and her faith was strong. That's until tragedy strikes and she's not so sure anymore. Noah seems to come out of nowhere and he's just what she needs. Sometimes in life we don't realize what we are missing until it's standing right in front of you. She pushed everyone away, including Noah. This was a beautiful story. I can't wait to read more of her work. Definitely a book I would recommend ❤ ...more

Inspirational short read, that hits close to home. For those of us who believe, we have questions, we have anger, denial and the need to blame. We've all done it, I'm glad Lilli with some help from Noah found her way. ...more

This was a really sweet and emotional read about losing someone you love and finding your way back from the darkness. This book teaches us with a little faith and support from loved ones you can overcome anything with the realization that it just takes time. So sad but true.

Happy Reading 🤓

By the Grace of You is a short novella about losing faith in God and His word. And Lord let me tell you how much this novel broke me and how much it meant to me. If you believe in God, in any God, there may have been a time n your life that you lost your way. Lilli loses her way for a big reason, but as did I, but sometimes it's something little in your life that can cause you to question your beliefs and your faith. 

Sometimes you need someone to help you guide your way back. 

Noah is that person
