A Saving Grace by Jane KirkpatrickGrace Hathaway must rescue a dear friend from a remote and notorious clinic that promises healing but delivers only heartache. In a place laced with deceit, where lives hang in the balance, whom can she trust to help her? 

My Review:

I really enjoyed reading this set of four Christian historical romance novellas. I am not usually a huge fan of novellas because I think they are too short to fully develop a plot. All of these plots were interesting and unique. The characters were developed and I felt engaged with them. I enjoyed all of the stories too much to pick a favorite. Fans of this genre will like this collection. Recommended. :)
