Healing Grace by Lisa Lickel

Back Cover Blurb:

Grace Runyon could fix anyone -- until her husband developed cancer and died. Believing no one would forgive her, Grace runs from the life she knew, hoping even God wouldn’t find her in a little out-of-the-way town in Michigan. It takes a very sick man and his little boy to help her face her past, accept who she is and battle her way back to redemption. Just when they begin to hope for the future, he relapses. Grace faces the ultimate choice once again: Trusting God to work through her precious gift, or letting a terminally ill man die. What if the price is more than she can pay?

A Short Excerpt:

Putting together a whole new life after everything she’d been through was risky. She wasn’t exactly hiding, but neither did she care to let anyone know where to find her. Yet.

Time for a normal life, remember?

A good night’s sleep will do wonders.

By the time the sun faded, Grace had exhausted herself. Scrubbing the kitchen and a cubby of a room behind it she’d claim for her own took buckets of hot water and a pair of neon yellow rubber gloves, but at least she’d have a clean spot to lay her mattress and sleeping bag. Too tired to eat, she’d stretched herself out and groaned. Thirty-five-year-olds should not be this out of shape.

The room seemed to whirl. When she focused again, she stood in bright daylight, looking down into the newly-dug hole. Without looking up she knew they were there, standing around her and staring, accusing.

“Your fault! You let this happen! You let him die when you should have saved him!”

“I tried!” God knows she wanted to save Jonathan. “He was the one—he told me not to try again.”

To go to a new place all alone takes great strength. But sometimes running from your problems only causes more.
