Gracie's Surrender

By Blossom Turner


Helping the orphan children in Richmond just might overturn everything Gracie thought she knew, including the value of love.

Gracie Williams has always had an adventurous streak, which led her from her home in the Shenandoah Valley to Richmond, Virginia, where she can devote her life to the orphan children. Though her beauty has brought on the advances of many men, she has no plans to marry, and finds suitors an unfortunate irritation she doesn’t have time for—much to her parents’ chagrin.

When she befriends Matthew Weston, the mature and serious orphanage superintendent, she confides in him and believes he shares her goals. Neither are prepared for the sparks that fly. Tension grows as Matthew falls in love with her, yet realizes he is just another man in the long line of would-be suitors.

A family crisis, an orphan train, and the plight of a sweet orphan named Emma throw the couple together in deep and meaningful ways. But will this be enough for Gracie to embrace a new way of thinking, and the gift of love that only true soul mates can share?

Book Takeaway:

In this story Gracie travels the road we all eventually travel. God's ways are not our ways. Gracie was good at calling the shots until God scrambled up her life enough for her to not only to realize this truth but to accept it.

Why the author wrote this book:

I always write for two reasons...I love romance. So my novels must have a healthy dose of a couple finding love and of course happily ever after. However, the second reason is the power behind the story. I use story like Jesus did parables to tell of His amazing grace. In this particular novel, research on the orphan trains that ran in the late 1800's and the plight of the children touched my soul. I wanted to bring the awareness of living our life for a larger purpose than just ourselves. I pray I have accomplished both goals.
