In this season of profound love, The Gift of Grace (Gifts of Christmas Book One) by Shanna Hatfield has given her readers a sweet romance with twists and turns which turns a devastating tragedy into blessings far beyond their expectations.

Try as I might I could not put this book down. I would put it down but then I would start thinking about it and would have to open it back up I just had to know what was happening with Nora and J.B Nash. From Tragedy to Overcoming this book really pulled on my heartstrings. I don’t know that I have ever had a book to get to my heart and soul the way The Gifts of Grace did. Shanna Hatfield can write some heart wrenching books and this is definitely one of them. Only Shanna Hatfield can get me to ...more

After I concluded the 1st few chapters my emotion’s were waterworks. Never have I read such a touching book of loss and the power of love that heals one’s heart.
If you know me, I do not cry easily, but Shanna had me gushing.
Gift Of Grace was a beautifully written book about overcoming tragedy and learning how to live one day at a time.
A Gift Of Grace is a beautiful gift from Shanna Hatfield to her fan’s, a gift to remember God never gives us more than we can handle, plus a reminder to hold close

A beautiful touching story with great characters. This story pulls at your heart strings. Through the joy, and heartbreak comes love and patient to Nora. This is such a beautiful story of love and friendships that only strengthen during the time of Christmas.
Was given a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.

Oh my goodness! I loved it! It was so emotional and so sweet. JB and Nora have been through so much and there is more to come. But, they come out the other side in a much better place. Again, loved it!
