Throne of Grace by Cecily Wolf #Review
Posted by brriske
Newport, Rhode Island in the last decades of the nineteenth century was a stunningly beautiful and glamorous playground for the rich during the summer months, and a perfect setting for a romance between a rich young man from New York City and a local girl who works for his family. The two couldn’t possibly expect to have anything in common, as he is expected to follow his father in a financial career and she is merely a maid with a mother who takes care of local children while their parents work. Arthur Davenport, spoiled and bored, unsure of his place in his family and in the eyes of God, truly meets his match in Josie Warren, who is often just a bit hard on herself for not being the perfect Christian in thought as well as deed. The two meet on the famous Cliff Walk, and neither of them can imagine where or how their instant attraction will take them as he struggles to makes his parents understand that his calling is the same as hers, to help those less fortunate. He has no money of his own, and if they disinherit him out of disapproval, how can he help Josie, who has spent her life working hard to help support herself and her mother? More importantly, how can he convince her that he would gladly give up his life of luxury just to be with her?
I’m an independent reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock. I was given this copy for my honest review. I give 5 stars. It was a very sweet story.
Josett Warren is a woman of God. It is the summer of 1893. She lives with her mother in Newport, Rhode Island. The girls around her have gone “boy crazy” she doesn’t see what the big deal is. But one day on her walk to work to the Davenport residence she meets a man that makes her question that thought. The problem is he is above her in society.
Arthur Davenport is twenty years old and his family is pushing him to marry and for him to work with his father. During his travels in the past year he has come to the realization that he has not lived in a Godly way. He has seen the heartache on his travels around the world and has decided to open a shelter.
This is a wonderful story about how God works in mysterious ways to get His work done. How He puts the right person in your path at just the right time.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I’m looking forward to reading the next. I would recommend this book to anyone that can see in to their own heart and see beyond what is in front of them. HEA.
