The second book in the Zimmerman Restoration trilogy, this book focuses on the three stories of B & B operator Alexa Zimmerman, cousin Anna-Grace Braun, and reporter Briley Forrester.
Briley, a tabloid news reporter, has come to the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville to prove those in the community are not all they seem to be. He is determined to find a scoop and therefore make a name for himself - and believes by living in the community and befriending people he will "get the dirt".
Anna-Grace is to marry Steven, a farmer with a homestead in Arborville, who secretly dreams of becoming a teacher. She comes to the Arborville community to see if she feels she can live there. Anna-Grace has recently discovered her birth family also live in this community, but she is reticent to learn who they are and meet them.
Alexa has also discovered that her background is not what she thought it was, and she struggles to find a place she belongs. Supported by the kindness of the Zimmerman family, as well as a budding friendship with Briley, she slowly begins to reconcile with the situation.
I have not yet read the first book in this series, but can confidently say that "When Grace Sings" is still a complete story. Filled with interesting characters and full of conflict, this story will satisfy those looking for a good read. I can easily recommend this book and look forward to more from this author.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review.
