I had a hard time sinking into this romance. It just didn't pull you in, and while it had a compelling story, it just wasn't catching for me for some reason.

Kelsey moved to a small Michigan town to run away from some troubles. Or rather not run but she had to alter her life after a traumatic experience. But it can't completely leave her, because the experience let her pregnant and confused about what's going to happen in her life. And when army doctor Luke moves in next door she isn't sure whether to be scared of him, or attracted to him. And then she has to work with him on a charity case so they're thrown together pretty quickly.

I liked Kelsey. I thought she was strong and that her character acted appropriately for her experiences. But Luke I just didn't get. He seemed very two-dimentional and honestly didn't have some very good attributes to his character. If I were Kelsey, I certainly wouldn't have gone for him. But to each their own I guess. I actually liked the side characters. Luke's sister Hannah was pretty entertaining.

Kelsey has a lot to overcome, but for how exciting her past is, the book actually moves quite slow. And it gets kind of boring at times. I also thought the romance was only so-so. There just wasn't chemistry there. And since this was love-inspired it was a christian book. But it wasn't overt or preachy, so that wasn't too bad. I just think that this book could have used some time to develop the plot a little more, instead of rushing it, especially towards the end.

Ok, but I just wasn't thrilled with the characters. I think this could have had the potential to be a very very good book. But it just didn't spend the time it could have in developing itself.

Kelsey is living in her late grandmother's cottage on a lake in Michigan after a traumatic incident that left her realizing there is more to life than the corporate ladder she was climbing. She is enjoying the peace and quiet of her life as a mother-to-be and quilt shop owner until a handsome doctor moves into the house next door. Now they share a private beach, a community project, and a spark. Kelsey has a lot of baggage, but with subtle persistence and his devotion to the project, Luke wins her heart. When she confides about the father of her child, Luke pulls away. There is no way he can deal with her circumstances. With a lot of prayer, the Grace of God, the premature arrival of Kelsey's bundle of joy and Luke's impending departure of Michigan, he realizes he can not live without either lady.

Kelsey Anderson had worked in a high-powered job for a long time, but a tragic event with left her pregnant made her re-think her life and move to a small beach-side cottage her grandmother had left to her. She was isolated and alone, that is until Dr. Luke Turner moved in next door, but he'd only be staying until the end of summer.

This book had some really positive elements. I liked the whole story idea, and thought Kelsey behaved appropriately for the events that had happened to her. Her reaction after the birth also seemed natural and realistic. I also liked Hannah, Luke's sister and her visit to the beach. I liked Luke's story and how he came to be part of building the youth center. And I liked the decisions that were made on the living arrangements at the end of the book.

I had a problem with Luke and his attitude. Almost from the beginning, he was determined to "get to the bottom" of what was a very personal matter. If they had been dating, I would have understood, but they weren't. I also was uncomfortable with his attitude once he found out the truth. I thought he was a bit push...

But this was a very good book and well deserving of four stars!

"Child of Grace" was truly heartwarming and inspirational, and I positively and thoroughly enjoyed reading this Love-Inspired novel. The story line was phenomenal and I absolutely fell in love with the characters, especially Kelsey and Luke. If you love a Christian romance that warms your heart and makes you never want to put down, then "Child of Grace" is the book for you.

This book really is a story of how God's grace reaches us in any and every situation. Not only that but it also reminds us that we all need grace, from the hurting and fearful to the brave and strong.

I like Ms. Hannon's books, and appreciate the gentle religious philosophy with which she imbues her characters. However, in this case, she leapt right past religious and into the realm of complete fantasy.

**SPOILER ALERT** (not much of a spoiler, since you can figure it out by the middle of chapter 1...)
Our female protagonist is the victim of a violent assault which left her pregnant. Her reaction to that trauma is well-depicted. However, Ms. St. John's decision to allow our heroine to become pregnant in the first place is a bit baffling, since it's basic procedure for rape victims to take a huge dose of birth-control (aka "the morning after pill"), which effectively prevents pregnancy. (Note to readers who don't believe in abortifacient drugs: the so-called "morning after pill" does NOT induce abortion when taken immediately after intercourse. It works just like The Pill, preventing conception.) Since we assume at the beginning of the book that our heroine reported the attack, we also have to believe that she ended up in the hospital. Who refuses to prevent the possibility of pregnancy after rape when she has the choice?? Contraception is not abortion, and most people -- including devout Christians -- use contraception. The fact that the pregnancy occurred in the first place is puzzling, and this is where I start to get lost.

On top of that, our characters remain undeveloped throughout the course of the book. It's mostly plot- and angst-driven, which is unfortunate. Although our characters spend considerable amounts of their time struggling over decisions they must make, we never learn anything more about them. In addition, the characters' sudden epiphanies and instant changes of heart are completely unrealistic.
