I absolutely LOVE Lynn Austin! This book was no exception.
A wonderful tale of ancestory and how the life and roles of women have changed dramatically through the years, and across the generations. You will fall in love with Emma, Grace, and Suzanne and all the other many characters in this book. You will cry, you will get mad, you will feel the injustice as if you are actually there. But in the end, you will see that Heavenly grace covers a multitude of sins.
Austin captures you from the first chapter!
So far, every one of Lynn Austin's books that I have read have been 5 stars. I had this book on my shelves for almost a year. Read it in a matter of days and then thought to myself "Why did I wait to read this book? It was great!"
This is an awesome book. It is about Eve Brauer who shares her family's history with her daughter and granddaughter that she has kept secret for 50 years. After seeing the destruction of her granddaughter's marriage, she begins to wonder if secrets that she has kept may have been part of the reason for her granddaughter's unhappiness. This book scans through several generations of a family and shows that no matter what a secret is, or how long it has been secret, it comes to the light. Excellent book that everyone in my opinion would love.
"...a compelling story of four unforettable women -- their struggles, their crises of faith, their triumphs."
This started a little slow for me but really grabbed me once it got going! Another Lynn Austin masterpiece that I could not put down.
