Review: An Uncommon Grace by Serena B. Miller

About the book:
Grace Connor, a military nurse formerly stationed in Afghanistan, hopes that moving to a farm in rural Ohio will help her recover from the ravages of war.

Levi Troyer finds his pacifist beliefs challenged when he discovers his stepfather has been killed and his mother wounded by an unknown intruder. Levi and Grace are thrown together when she comes to his family’s rescue and saves his mother’s life. A deep attraction develops—even though a relationship between them is strictly forbidden.

Levi belongs to the most conservative and isolated of all Amish sects—the Swartzentruber Amish. Even before meeting Grace, Levi had begun to question some of their teachings. He has considered leaving, but knows he will be banned forever from contact with his younger siblings and widowed mother—who need him to survive. He is torn between his love for Grace and his responsibility to his family.

Grace considers leaving her beloved farm and reenlisting rather than continuing to live near the man she loves but cannot have. Levi must confront the Bann if he pursues Grace. And a murderer must be caught. When lifelong allegiances are tested, can love and justice prevail?

My thoughts:

An Uncommon Grace is the third book I've read by Serena B. Miller and it was another great read! Amish novels are not my favorite genre to read, but every once in a while I enjoy reading a good one.

I loved the characters in An Uncommon Grace! Grace and Levi were great main characters. Their romance story was interesting and I liked how it wasn't a given how things were going to turn out - my initial guess was wrong and I was a little surprised by what happened in the end.

I really enjoyed the entire story and loved that there was a little bit of suspense/mystery in An Uncommon Grace. 

Overall, An Uncommon Grace was an enjoyable read and I recommend it to fans of Amish fiction. I look forward to reading more of Miller's books.
