Book Description

Sisters and Secrets.
Eighteen years ago, Cass Deason Myers ran away from home and heartbreak. Now she's running away again, this time to the home she left behind. A preacher's wife, Cass finds herself questioning her faith and her marriage. Her sister's phone call asking for help with their mother provides the perfect opportunity to escape.
Anna Deason-Fite-Turner doesn't want or need help for herself or her three daughters. But her mother is another story all together. Calling Cass is a last resort. But when Anna finds the bottle of pills in Momma's dresser drawer, she knows she has to call her sister. Unfortunately, Anna knows once Cass is home the whispers will start, and once again, everyone in town will compare perfect Cass to her failure of a sister, even though she's the one who stayed behind.
Grace is Enough: a story about family, faith and the redemptive power of love.


Editorial Reviews

Review

A heart-warming story about what it means to be a sister and a woman struggling with self-doubt. The characters are so well-developed you'll believe you've just made two new friends. A great read!

From the Author

A loved one called me Jezebel the day I wore red lipstick to church. I was a young single mother at the time, so I found the idea of my red lipstick paving the road to hell quite hilarious. At least that's what I said out loud. Inside, I was crying. Fortunately, a ridiculous comment like that didn't shake my faith. Pissed me off, but it didn't make me turn my back on God. I figure comments like that have shaken others' faith. Funny how people like that think they're glorifying God. I think Jesus would have something to say about that. The Jesus I know was about something far bigger than red lipstick. Don't even get me started on the number of times I've heard people talk about tattoos being of the devil. Or how drug addicts are a product of their own bad choices so we just need to leave them to go to hell one hit at a time.
Over the years people have done a lot to ruin the words and actions of Jesus for non-believers. That thought is directly behind my decision to write Christian fiction in addition to the other genres I write in. The Jezebel comment and the anger and hurt it caused led directly to Grace is Enough (out now) and Letting Go. 
I held those emotions back for so long, I didn't even realize they were simmering in my brain, just waiting for a chance to break out. Funny thing, though; even when I started writing, I held the pain back. I didn't let myself feel completely. Someone once told me writing is like bleeding on the page. They're right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart-warming growth in understanding between sisters October 29, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book about resolving relational issues that have divided family members who truly love each other. I enjoyed reading it, though Anna's having three children by three different husbands was a little unbelievable, as was as the mother's reluctance to talk about the girls' hero father.

The author has an MA in English, so I found the occasional errors, like "your" instead of "you're" to be especially annoying. The quick exchange of points of view verged on head-hopping. Cass either resided in California or Kansas. It wasn't clear.

But all those things can be resolved with additional editing. On the whole, the story was engaging, the characters well-developed, and the ending satisfying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story January 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story. The story really hit home in many ways to my own life. The only thing I had an issue with was half the time it says Cass and her husband are from California and then the book says Cass and her husband live in Kansas - confusing! Also, lots of head hopping in the story. It could be tightened up and be a GREAT story. But it is hard to keep up with who is actually seeing things or speaking etc. An editor would catch the wrong word choice, head hopping, and location confusion.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Thought Provoking Novel January 27, 2013
By LZO
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has many things I still need to consider. Sometimes I feel as if I am the only person who doesn't know the answers. For every person will have their own answer. It is a religious novel but many of my religious friends would enjoy it.

The book was very well written. I truly enjoyed the book.. It showed that we withdraw from family sometimes, but usually get drawn back to the fold.
