Editorial Reviews

The author's introduction challenges listeners with a new word - "ungrace" - and sets forth her narrative mission. She wants to describe how she moved from this uncomfortable state with stories that remind listeners of their own lives. "I was a cynic before I entered kindergarten," VanLiere reports after she describes her first molestation at age 3 with the kind of anger that comes from one who's suffered in this way and kept it secret for many years. Her story is an integrated view of her path to a relationship with God. Quotations from all kinds of literature merge with her frank revelations and Bible references. Most importantly, she vividly tells stories of horrors, sadness, and, finally, grace with a personable tone that makes readers cheer her growth and ultimate success.

Publisher's Summary

Finding Grace is the powerful, often humorous, and deeply moving story of one woman's journey of broken dreams. It is the story of how a painful legacy of the past is confronted and met with peace. This book is for anyone who has struggled to understand why our desires - even the simplest ones - are sometimes denied or who has questioned where God is when we need Him most. This story is about one woman's unlikely road to motherhood. Finally, it's a book about the "undeserved gift which is life itself". It's the story of Finding Grace..

Donna VanLiere has entertained millions with her inspirational stories. In her new book, she gives us a candid look into her own life - a life filled with suffering and pain, but one that ultimately finds peace with itself.

Finding Grace... and joy, delight, and camaraderie

What a heartbreaking, beautiful, glorious story. Told with such feeling and candor, I feel like I've lived it. It makes me want the delightful parts of the author's life... but teaches me that God has a better plan than that. And that THAT is more than okay!
