Grace and the Preacher Review


 About the Book
The Kansas community of Fairland anticipates the arrival of their new minister and in recent months, late in 1882, postmistress Grace Cristler has communicated with Reverend Dille via letters, answering his questions about the little town, and developing affection for the man who pens thoughtful missives.

Theophil Garrison grew up under the loving influence of his saintly grandmother, but was roped into his cousins’ train-robbing plan. When they fail and are apprehended, Theo fled the scene, evading jail time. Now an angry cousin is out to avenge Theo's duplicity, and he’s on the run. He encounters a fatally ill traveler--a minister. Seeing a way to keep hidden, Theo trades identities with the man, dons his fine black suit, carries a Bible, and prays that he'll be accepted as Rufus Dille.

Once in Fairland, if Theo's true identity is uncovered, what will be left of the world he has built for himself, Grace, and those in the town who have come to love and accept him? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I really like the idea that goes with this story because it is all about grace. I liked the setting and the normal troubles that Grace seems to have. I enjoyed her character. At times the story felt a little slow and all too predictable. But that being said it is a sweet story that proves how lives can change. 
If you have enjoyed Sawyer's books you will enjoy this new story!
Four stars.
