GraceLin by Abba Lin is the story of a woman who lost her grip on her life and was left floundering. Lin is having a hard time in life. Being divorced at 30 and restarting life at its prime is not the ideal situation for anyone. With her heart broken, and left to make sense of her life, she makes the decision to relocate. So at the age of 33, she moves to Greensville where she unknowingly finds the best life has to offer. It wasn’t easy, it was filled with the biggest challenges she could ever have imagined, but in facing these challenges she found God and His grace. She could always give up, but she was never a quitter, so she does what she always did; she fastens her seatbelt and races toward the challenges thrown her way.
This is an inspirational and very comforting book. Lin is a character that makes you feel like she is part of your family, which in turn makes you invested in her growth. I enjoyed that she never seemed to give up; every time life knocked her down, she would simply brush off the hurt and get back to her feet. The author has done a wonderful job of not only making her a believable character but giving her a strength that we find in the women in our lives. The pace was great, the flow of the story was wonderful and the overall atmosphere was perfect for the story. Lin’s development arc is steady; it builds with the story and reaches a peak with it. This was a wonderful read!
