[Following is the official OnlineBookClub.org review of "Amazed by her Grace Trilogy" by Janet Walker.]
Tracy Sullivan is a young girl whom one could expect to be just another one of life’s statistics. She is being raised by her single mother who is abusive, an addict, and cares about nothing and no one (not even her own child). Tracy is a shy girl who’s keeping a few personal secrets, and the only life that she knows is living in the projects surrounded by bullies, drugs and crime.
Grace Nelson aka “Amazing Grace”
is a world renowned Olympic champion who now spends her time training athletes at an elite high school in Georgia. Grace lives the life that everyone dreams of. She has a celebrity husband, a gated estate to live in, a luxury vehicle to drive, the admiration of almost everyone around here, and all of the perks that being a star and being married to a star could provide. Miz Grace, as she is affectionately called by her students, appears to be “living the life”, but she too is keeping a few personal secrets.
Grace is a woman who unconventionally comes to the unexpected rescue of Tracy. She brings to life parts of Tracy that seemed to be buried, dead. She’s a woman who with what seems to be an iron fist trains even the shyest and rawest of talents into remarkable athletes and young adults, but there is so much more to this amazing woman than meets the eye.
Amazed by Her Grace is a story that seemingly showcases two main individuals from opposite sides of life, but as you dive deeper into each book you realize that even though the main characters appear to be complete opposites they really are one in the same. However, there are many unexpected twists and turns that bring this novel to REAL LIFE.
This book is actually a trilogy and I enjoyed the entire series. The author has a unique way of writing from each of the main characters perspective and it really puts you in the mind of the character allowing you to fully experience their emotions throughout the series. Although I have never lived in the area where the story takes place I was able to understand the communities that the characters were from because the author very skillfully painted the picture of contrast in their lifestyles, making you feel as if you could totally relate to what they were experiencing.
I rate this book a 4 out of 4 stars
. It was very well written with a great story line, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves to read especially books that are long series.
