Erased With Grace | Aynne Cynar Marathon



Today I’m reviewing Erased With Grace, the first book in the Cotton Springs series by a talented new author — Aynne Cynar.

Here is a brief synopsis from Goodreads:

Kathy Penchak is nurse manager at the Franklin Hospice in Cotton Springs, Kentucky.

The cherished role of wife feels erased when she discovers her husband’s newest employee in the family automotive repair business is also his mistress. Her adult children are involved in their own lives and the loss of an old faithful golden retriever, Giggles, still stings.

The newest patient at the facility has lost parts of her memory but not her faith. She possesses a vibrant witness that blesses the staff with warmth, joy, and encouragement right down to a final gift from the “Magic Bucket”.

It’s tempting for Kathy to see God defined through circumstances. The new patient, Christian colleagues, and the WeKnow Sunday school class hold her to the precipice of faith.

Kathy discovers God is able to do beyond what we ask or think and may answer prayer in most unimaginable ways. She learns an empty nest and failed marriage can become a cavern to walk through and arrive into the loving arms of her Savior. Her relationships have changed but are Erased with Grace.

I am very excited to introduce Aynne Cynar on my book blog!

Erased With Grace is the heart-rending, stirring inspirational story of Kathy and Ron Penchak. So many things Kathy is going through really hit home with me — of course, Kathy is a fictional character, but I’m not — and life can really get to be a mess sometimes!

Aynne Cynar simply amazes me! I don’t know how she writes fiction that sounds so true. I find myself wishing I knew some of the characters, especially June and her “WeKnow” Sunday school class at church.

Honestly, I could sure use a support group of Godly ladies!

Then there’s the wonderful Anna Rose, one of the newest residents at the Franklin Hospice facility. Anna Rose seems to have a direct line with God; she’s got enough faith to move mountains, and she enjoys every moment of each day.

What a blessing it would be to have a friend like Anna Rose…

Believe me — this book will be a blessing to you, too.

This is the first book I have read by Aynne Cynar… but I assure you — it won’t be the last!

I love reading the Cotton Springs series!

January 2015 Debut Author Marathon | Aynne Cynar


January Marathon - Aynne Cynar PNG


I am dedicating the entire month of JANUARY on my bookshelf blog to:


Each week I will be featuring a new author!

These five authors are especially talented in their respective genres.


The featured author for week five is…


My daughter attended a local ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writer) meeting last October 2014. While chatting with others, she mentioned that her mother — that would be me — reviews books.

Aynne Cynar, who was also attending the meeting, gave my daughter a book for me to review… well, since it wasn’t going to be published until mid January, I put in on my TBR (to be read) bookcase, past the ones due in December — and didn’t really think of it again until recently.

I had promised the other authors that I would feature them in January 2015, so I worked diligently on their weeks. Then I ran across Aynne’s book. Now Aynne hadn’t asked me to feature her — just to review her book. But once I began reading Erased With Grace, I knew I had to include her in this special debut author month! I quickly contacted Aynne, worked out the details, and now Aynne is my 5th debut feature!
