This is the 4th in the Series starting with Thorn in My Heart. These are excellent and epic stories based on Biblical stories. Very touching, very good character development and impactful messages about God's grace and our call to Forgive.
This was my first taste of Liz Curtis Higgs' writings. To be sure, Grace in Thine Eyes is extremely well-written and captivating. I think I literally experienced every emotion while reading this book- curiosity, intrigue, joy, contentment, fear, anger... at which I very nearly stopped reading! So glad I stuck it out until the end! A wonderful story of mercy and forgiveness.
