Outside of Grace
The award-winning story of a pastor's daughter and her journey back to faith in the face of trauma.
Longing to define herself as more than a pastor’s kid, Ava Sanford leaves Texas and the pressures of Grace Church behind to study abroad in Scotland for a semester. But she never meant to leave God too.
"Told with unflinching and sometimes heart-breaking honesty, Outside of Grace is a compelling story about dealing with the world around us with both its beautiful and ugly elements. It delicately tackles the reality of recovering from trauma, learning to live again, and hopefully even thriving."
Mary Ellen Bramwell, bestselling author of In Search of Sisters and When I Was Seven.
Anyone who has faced adversity will be touched by this young woman’s struggle to overcome a life changing experience that leaves her questioning her faith and the love of those around her. It’s a story of faith, love, family and the harsh realities of life that you won’t want to put down.
Barbara A. Luker, author of I Carry Your Heart
A powerful story of a young woman’s dark night of the soul and her struggle for redemption. It is a modern parable for anyone who has lost touch with their faith in the face of the world.
Jefferson Blackburn-Smith, author of Forgiveness
