Wings of Grace
Wings of Grace by Vanessa Davis Griggs
 
This novel includes generations of spirituality, mystery, history, and racial conflict. A black woman, Mamie Patterson, and a white woman, Sarah Fleming, grow up together in Asheville, North Carolina, and their lives are forever intertwined. In 1935, each becomes pregnant and gives birth within hours. Sarah is told her baby was stillborn and is sent off to a mental institution. Mamie raises her twins, one a dark male, Willie B. Jr., and one a light female, Memory Grace. For more than 60 years, Sarah holds onto her intuition that her baby did not die. When she meets Johnnie Mae Taylor, a famous author, she confides in her and asks for help in locating her family. Johnnie Mae is in the midst of a book tour, growing concern about her aging mother, and excitement about her wedding to the Reverend George Landis, yet is compelled to help this woman. Even narrowly escaping the World Trade Center disaster on September 11, she is presented with more evidence that will help Sarah. In a series of serendipitous events in this well-written narrative, Sarah and her family are reunited.

Promises Beyond Jordan
Promises Beyond Jordan
 
 
"Have you ever loved someone that you never had?" George Landris asks his fiancee Theresa Jordan barely two weeks before their wedding. George, a hip, dreadlock-wearing young pastor at Wings of Grace Faith Ministry Church in Birmingham, AL, has just learned that his first love, Johnnie Mae Taylor, barely survived a car accident in Atlanta. Her husband and toddler daughter are still in critical condition, and he feels compelled to lend his support. George's departure is the signal for Theresa's prenuptial doubts to emerge. As the wedding draws closer, George and Theresa grow further apart, and Theresa's discovery of a dark secret in her father's past seems to close the door on the couple's future together. Then, a scandal erupts in the church, with George and Theresa at the center. George clings to his faith to sustain him in his trials, but Theresa's selfishness may mean the destruction of his ministry. Fans of Victoria Christopher Murray's Temptation and Angela Benson's Awakening Mercy will relish Griggs's outstanding sequel to The Rose of Jericho. For all collections.
