As the only daughter of a successful businesswoman, Grace grew up with nothing but the best. Sheltered by her single mother and educated in an exclusive private school in Detroit, Grace was not ready for the harsh realities of an unforgiving world. Grace's naivete coupled with her desire to experience life on her own terms leads her down a path of emotional devastation and physical abuse. Through a chance encounter Grace meets Mike, a successful design artist who introduces her to a relationship very different from her usual one-night-stands and affairs with married men.Things take a turn for the worst however when Grace's roommate walks in on her and her married personal trainer in their apartment.

    Loved it!

    This was such an awesome story...I laughed, cried, despaired, and rejoiced along with the people in it. They became more than characters and I crawled inside their lives. Wonderfully written.

    Wonderful Read!

    Saving Grace is the best book I have read in a very long time. The message and characters are very "today" with the real life situations that they face. This book boosted my spirituality and gave me a shot in the heart that I very much needed!

    Growing Faith

    This was a very good book to read. It started out slow but the more I read it the better it got until i was unable to put it down. I felt like i knew the characters, and felt the love the grandparents had for Grace, and the struggle she was going thro with her mother. And her decision to go back to college and end up in a class that her father taught and she didn't know who he was. And her reaction when she found out that this man who was looking at her strange in class and made her feel uneasy,that he was the man that had not been in her life at all. she had to come to terms weither she wanted to have a relationship with him, at the death of her mother he just step right in and was there for her if she needed him. This was a book about love, relationship between two girls that knew each other all there life, and what they went thro together. This just shows no matter how hard it might seem to be for you at that time in your life, if you ask for god's help he will answer your prayers, and always put him first in your life. Ryan Phillips is a very good writer to be a young woman, putting her feet out in the waters for the first time keep the good work up, I am looking forward to reading your second novel After the Fall.

    A reviewer

    Once I started reading your book young lady, if it was not for school I probably would have finished it in a week, that's how much I enjoyed the book. I use to get some time on the public transportation to and from school to read your book, are a few hours while everyone was asleep or gone. Young lady your writing skills are awesome and beautifully written. I'm going to have to buy this book again for my own library, because I bless someone else with my copy and I would like for my daughters to read how a real man is suppose to be and how he is to treat a young lady. Are there more good books like Saving Grace from this author?

    Mind-Blowing

    I loved this book I kept putting it off, saving it for last. I don't know why I didn't turn it back in to the library, but I'm glad I didn't. When I read that part about her mom I couldn't stop crying b/c I went through a similar situation with my godfather in Oct. This book will help everybody understand the people you are around and how God will let you go through something but when you come out you are a new person with a testimony.

    FABULOUS

    I was hesitant to read this book because I thought it was for singles. But this book is for everyone. It was full of plot and emotion. At times my eyes filled with tears.Other times I'd slam the book down and say, 'No she didn't!' The last 100 pages had my stomach in knots. The only thing that could have made this book better was if it was 800 pages instead of 400!

    God's Writer

    I have never felt so connected to a book's characters. It made me search for answers within my own personal relationship with family, friends and God. The Holy Spirit has great works for you, Ryan. God Bless

    A must read

    This is truly one of the best books I have read. This young author, Ryan Phillips has a bright future in front of her. She has the ability to write in a way that you seem to almost be in the same room with the characters. I would love to see this book turn into a movie. This is a must read.
