Today I am reviewing When Grace Sings, the second book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy by Kim Vogel Sawyer.
Here is a brief synopsis:
When trouble roars into quiet Arborville, Alexa and Anna-Grace find themselves the target for discord and exposed secrets. Can they continue to seek the God of all grace amidst the fog of confusion?
Alexa Zimmerman wonders if the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville, Kansas will ever fully accept her. Her family roots here aren’t what anyone thought when she first arrived, but she is hopeful that her culinary and hospitality skills will win the skeptics over.
The bed-and-breakfast she’s operating needs to succeed so Alexa agrees to allow Briley Forrester, the hotshot reporter from Chicago, to stay as a long-term boarder not knowing his real motives for being amongst the Plain folk.
But when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna-Grace Braun, the presence of extended family brings out Alexa’s insecurities and sets Briley on the trail to uncovering a web of hidden truths.
Plans for a secure future and the sweetness of young romance hang in the balance when Alexa and Anna-Grace have to face that their secrets are interconnected, binding the two in ways they could not have imagined. They must trust in a loving, heavenly Father and His plan for their futures.

My daughter turned me on to this series after she read the first book and I feel so blessed to be able to read them too.
This wonderful series by Kim Vogel Sawyer has certainly earned a place on my bookshelf.
This is not the first story I have read about old-order Mennonites… I have read several books about similar communities and enjoyed them nearly as much as I enjoy reading about my beloved Amish communities.
This series has been a surprise for me — nothing like either of the novels I’ve read about old-order Mennonite communities but a wonderful story nonetheless. This is not an easy series to read — but I highly recommend it. Just because the stories deal with serious issues, does not mean they should be passed by.
Kim Vogel Sawyer writes a powerful story. The strength of emotion is so strong, the characters are so real and the issues they deal with are so easily believable — perhaps even familiar to some of us.
You will not want to put this book down until you reach the end. And you will find yourself wishing time would pass quickly so you can read the next one.
