She's been betrayed in the worst way, and not only by Dillian. Now her life may be in jeopardy.

Still into fitness she opened a fitness center in Dallas, Texas and adjusted her life to include this Plan B. Engaged to Mr. Body Builder himself, Dillian, living in a posh apartment, success at her fingertips, who would not have thought Gracie didn¿t have it all. Unfortunately it wasn¿t meant to be. Dillian mysteriously breaks up with her sending her spiraling into a deep chasm. Deciding to immerse herself in her work, and with the aid of her business partner and best friend Kendra, the fitness center flourishes. Members are joining, classes are filling up, business is up but there is still a negative down trend in Gracie. She received calls directing her to call the local health department and after returning the call, she is devastated by the conversation. She is asked to come in and submit herself to tests. The most agonizing days ensue as she waits to find out if the results from the test that she has taken for HIV proves that she is positive or not. She invites her parents to visit with her and although terrified to tell them, she realizes the strength that can come from their loving and Godly support. Gracie is their only child and their support is unwavering. During the time of this breakup, she meets an old flame, Marcus who happens to reside in Dallas too. Matter of fact, his fiancé¿ is a member of Gracie¿s Gym and she inadvertently reintroduces the two of them again. Marcus never extinguished the flame that he carried for Gracie and soon their friendship grew into a support system. By the Grace of God is a superbly written first novel by Keshia Dawn. The plot kept me reading until the end. I was so intrigued with how the story was going to turn out; I too waited with baited breath to hear the results of Gracie¿s test. I wanted to know who potentially infected her, and how they contracted this disease. I was interested in how such devastation would be handled. The reader will be shocked to see how each of the characters has such a complex role in the make up of the plot. Well written to keep you thinking and aware of your surroundings and keen on your divine purpose in life.
