Third book in the Amazed by her Grace trilogy (Books must be read in order):
In this three-book novel, former Olympic track-and-field gold medalist Grace Gresham-Nelson amazes others with her startling and neat beauty, fierce devotion to rules and order, and ability to remain both popular and famously unknowable at the prestigious, all-girl Beck Academy in Atlanta, where Grace is a nationally successful athletic director.
But when she meets the new student Tracy Sullivan, a gifted basketball player from an area housing project, Grace is so amazed by the teen’s athletic ability that the woman’s famous wall of privacy begins to crumble...leaving woman and teen open to a scandal neither could have foreseen.
(In this third and final book, sexy megachurch minister Charmaine Miller returns to Grace's world...bringing with her a tempest of emotions and a controversy of Olympic proportions.)
Reader, please note: Books 1, 2 and 3 of the Grace series must be read in proper order to follow the story's plot.

About the Author
Janet Walker, author of the three-book literary novel Amazed by her Grace, the stage play Desire of Ovid's Mother, and the trash-fic novel My Brother's Wife: An Old-School Soap (which she wrote under the pseudonym Toni Breland), walked away from a life of journalism and academic pursuits in order to concentrate on writing and selling her fiction.

Janet Walker is a very descriptive writer. Her ability to take a story and bring it alive on paper are incredible. At times I had to remind myself that it wasn't a movie. She so beautifully gave such detail into the lives of the characters that they become real. Her attention to details in the settings and time relevant historical information makes it even more compelling a story. I did not give it a perfect rating because I am left with some confusion and wondering. By the end of the series I'm still not sure the audience or the intention of the book. How important is the specific reference to Jehovah's Witness as the faith setting? Is this book promoting the idea of homosexuality as an identity? Does Pastor Charmaine believe there is a place for the homosexual lifestyle in the life of the believer? What becomes of Tracy Sullivan?
Enjoyed all three books. A great read!
I read the series in a month. I really enjoyed the books. What a powerful story of love and anger. I am looking forward to a 4th Amazed by her Grace.
One of the most moving, insightful and powerful stories that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Kudos to the author for truly bringing this story and it's characters to life.
