Publisher's Summary

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found.

Now remembered as the author of the world's most famous hymn, in the mid-18th century, as England and France stand on the brink of war, John Newton was a young sailor wandering aimlessly through life. His only duty was to report to his ship and avoid disgracing his father - until the night he heard Polly Catlett's enchanting voice caroling. He was immediately smitten and determined to win her affection.

An intense connection quickly formed between the two, but John's reckless spirit and disregard for the Christian life were concerns for the responsible, devout Polly. When an ill-fated stop at a tavern left John imprisoned and bound, Polly had to choose to either stand by his side or walk out of his life forever. Would she forfeit her future for the man she loved?

Step back through history to uncover the true love story behind a song that continues to stir the hearts and ignite the faith of millions around the globe.

    Story
    "Seriously wonderful! I couldn't stop listening!"

    This book was so splendidly wonderful I literally could not stop listening! I love this author she is so very enthralling. She gets my mind so interested in these characters that I seriously cannot get anything done at my house! My husband is going crazy because all I want to do is listen to her book! The characters of John and Polly are so sweet and so riveting that it was hard to stop thinking about them while I had to go to work. I love that this author is so true to history. Give it a try he won't want to stop.

    Story
    "Wonderfully Written"
    Would you listen to Newton and Polly again? Why?

    Absolutely wonderful story of love and overcoming the worst storms in your life


    What other book might you compare Newton and Polly to and why?

    I don't think I've read a book that would compare.


    What does Saskia Maarleveld bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has such a wonderful voice and so easy to listen to.


    If you could rename Newton and Polly, what would you call it?

    nothing love the name


    Any additional comments?

    powerful story I recommend for everyone.
