Publisher's Summary

One woman’s inspirational journey to finding a perfect love.

From a young age, Grace Clifton longs to serve the Lord and dreams of being happily married. With England in the midst of a Second World War, Grace experiences the touch of God and also the excitement of love and romance, but all too soon, it turns to heartbreak. Throughout her life, Grace has been sustained by her unwavering faith, but when all she holds dear is ripped away from her, Grace is devastated and left doubting everything she’s ever believed in.

As the world slowly recovers from war, Grace too begins the healing process. However, her steadfastness to God has been lost and she determines never to pray again. When an unexpected opportunity comes up in Kenya, Grace seizes the chance to seek a purpose and build a new life. In Mombasa, Grace soon realizes that she can’t distance herself from life’s complications, but if she’s prepared to open her heart, maybe her fragmented faith will blossom once more and bring her hope, love, and the restoration that she desperately needs.

Grace in Mombasa is a story about a woman whose amazing faith is shattered when her life falls apart, but will God simply let her go? If you like heartfelt dialogue, stories seeped in fact and history, and memorable characters, then you’ll love Tracy Traynor’s moving and inspirational novel that was inspired by real events.

Listen to Grace in Mombasa to escape into a story of yesteryear and the evocative dream that is Kenya!

For I was a stranger and you invited me in.

I was given a free code to listen to this book and boy what a listen.
Expect to be moved by this story which follows the path of a woman from childbirth to old age and which is incredibly moving. The story narrative sweeps from a difficult child birth to a childhood filled with joy and weaves a difficult path from tranquil village scenes to the horrors of Luftwaffe bombing over Manchester and Liverpool. Both writer and narrator have done an excellent job in presenting this Christian masterpiece. The second half of the novel is taken up by the main character's desire to live out a dream life in Kenya, a task she accomplishes but a task that is littered with extraordinary hardship. The story has plenty of Christian nuances and in my humble opinion it is a story of incredible friendships and love and laced liberally with doses of humour.
Well done!
