Read-it-First: Finding Grace


St. Martin's Read-it-First program presented us with Finding Grace by Donna VanLiere.

This week I received and read approximately twenty six pages – the most that I've received for any Read-it-First selection – granted this was only my fourth week participating. This was also the first non-fiction selection. Ms. VanLiere shares her story about losing her way in life only to find it again at some later point. She shares her reflections about her childhood expectations of life and how things blindside you and change the course of your life. The pain and abuse that she experienced during childhood is heartbreaking. The writing is both beautiful and sensitive. Finding Grace is an inspirational story.

Looking forward to next week's preview!
