Overview

Readers loved Rachel's Secret, the first book in BJ Hoff's wildly popular new series, The Riverhaven Years, and are eagerly awaiting the continuing story of young Amish widow, Rachel Brenneman, and Irish-American riverboat captain, Jeremiah Gant.

In Where Grace Abides, the compelling second book in the series, Hoff offers her readers an even closer look at the Amish community of Riverhaven and the people who live and love and work there. Secrets, treachery, and persecution are only a few of the challenges that test Rachel's faith and her love for the forbidden "outsider," while Gant's own hopes and dreams are dealt a life-changing blow, rendering the vow he made to Rachel seemingly impossible to honor.

Many of the other characters first introduced in Rachel's Secret now find their gentle, unassuming lives of faith jeopardized by a malicious outside influence. At the same time, those striving to help runaway slaves escape to freedom through the Underground Railroad face deception and the danger of discovery.

All the elements readers have come to expect from author BJ Hoff (romance, drama, great characters) join together in Where Grace Abides to fill the pages with a tender, endearing love story and a bold, inspiring journey of faith.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Endorsing BJ Hoff's work is not only a pleasure but an honor. BJ's masterful pen crafts a story of the Amish community that brings the people and beliefs alive in this compelling read. Where Grace Abides is Amish fiction at its best."
--Lori Copeland, author of Outlaw's Bride

"BJ Hoff writes with such tenderness, grace, and depth, that you are consumed with her books, from the very beginning. Her characters are impossible to forget. Needless to say, they are intriguing! This is where her talent exceeds most writers. The only problem I have; is that the stories are so wonderful, I read them too fast, and can't wait for the next book.

"This being the second of the series, I suggest very strongly, to read the first one. So, you will have the full enjoyment of the story line. You won't be sorry."
--Katherine Mary

"This author never fails to create a captivating story and develop memorable characters.

"Whenever a reader walks into our church library and asks for something 'good' to read, I am always confident in recommending BJ Hoff's fiction. The Riverhaven Years series lives up to her reputation."
--Ellie Smith, church librarian, Faith Memorial Church

"BJ continues to bring pleasure to her faithful 'old' readers, and to her host of 'new' readers. With her well-crafted stories and her depth of emotional connection she is able to draw you into the joys, sorrows, and perplexities experienced by her characters. We can only hope that there will be many new adventures through her creative pen in the future."
--Janette Oke, bestselling author

    I Also Recommend:

    The Amish and auslanders lives collide....neither will be the same.

    What a great book two in the Riverhaven Years series by B J Hoff. This book is an easy read and graciously adds depth to more characters as the book progresses making the release of book three a much anticipated moment. Having just begun to read Christian fiction, I am amazed at how much knowledge I gathered on the Amish way of life along with such enjoyable story lines. This book will be kept and shared with my own child when she is of the appropriate age. The love story between an outsider "auslander" and an Amish young lady interwoven with the stories of their family and friends allowed for some great reading!
