Fall from Grace by Ryan Phillips
“Grace fights the lump rising in her throat. For a moment she is lost in thought, remembering what it has taken to get to this point...”
Grace Cambridge is a young Black Christian with a new husband, old friends, and a shocking moral dilemma.
A proverbial "cat fight" opens the story and draws you into a complex relational web. The book peels through layers of dysfunction between Grace and Trina and follows their individual, sometimes intertwining, lives to reveal how they find their way back to Christ and to each other. Grace is intelligent, determined, well-spoken yet vulnerable. You want her to be happy, you want her to succeed. Grace's Christianity isn't sugar-coated. Her faith is real and so is her life---riddled with plenty of twists, turns, and conflicts.
As Grace's relationship with God is challenged she questions her identity and is faced with a life-changing decision. She deals with everyday issues, sometimes successfully; sometimes not.
Grace's experiences are not much different than yours---how she handles them might be.
