Grace's Forgiveness by Molly Jebber is the second book in Keepsake Pocket Quilt series. The novel is set in Berlin, Ohio in 1900. Grace Blauch was born with a red birthmark on her left cheek. Grace is a midwife and also runs Grace and Sarah's Dry Good's Shop with her best friend, Sarah Helmuth. Grace does not believe she will ever get married until she Mark King comes to town. Mark is new to the area (just bought a small farm) and is opening a store next to Grace and Sarah (wood furniture and toys). Slowly Mark wins Grace's trust and love. But then Mark's (shunned) brother, Abel King comes to town. It is hard to put the feelings for family ahead of the Ordung. When Grace's father finds out that Mark broke the Ordung, he removes his blessing from their wedding. Will Grace and Mark ever be able to get married? Grace and Mark's road to happiness will not be easy, but it will be full of love and life lessons.
Grace's Forgiveness is such a sweet book. It has a good moral and talks about love, faith, family, and community (and quilting). Grace's Forgiveness is well-written and easy to read. I liked the characters and the setting (Berlin, Ohio). This is the second book I have read by Molly Jebber and I look forward to reading more of her novels. It is a simple story, but I liked the message contained within it. What you do in Mark's situation? Could you ignore a family member in need (who arrives at your door)? I give Grace's Forgiveness 4 out of 5 stars.
I received a complimentary copy of Grace's Forgiveness from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
