When Grace Sings—the second book in Kim Vogel Sawyer’s Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy—comes after When Mercy Rains in the series, but I’m not sure it places second on my scale. When I first read When Mercy Rains, it completely blew me away with is sweet story, spiritual themes, and lovable characters. I have to say, When Grace Sings pleased me just as much. The storyline was obviously a bit different—it focused more on the secondary characters from the previous book, as well as some new characters—but it held many of the same components. Although it focused on Alexa, Anna-Grace, Briley, and Stephen rather than Suzanne, Abigail, Alexa, and Paul—which means that the pain felt and secrets kept were a little bit different—it was just as much of a touching read, even though I didn’t cry this time. Since I knew much of Alexa from the previous book, I already thought of her as a friend, but it was nice to get to know her on a deeper level as she struggled to find her place in Arborville while attempting to run her very own bed-and-breakfast. Anna-Grace, though, was fairly new to me, but I found her to be just as loveable as Alexa, in her own way. They both struggled—although in different ways—with their ‘adopted’ status, and I admired their determination to do the right thing, though I related most with their longing to keep themselves from more pain. That was one of my favorite thing about the two girls, they both were strong in their faith and someone to look up to, while at the same time they were easy to relate to because of their humanness. Despite my initial feelings of him, Briley also came to be one of my favorite characters. Although he came to the bed-and-breakfast with not-so-kind intentions towards the town and its people, I couldn’t help eventually falling for him and his teasing ways. I wish I could tell you he turns out all right in the end, but I can’t. I don’t want to spoil anything for you! I can, however, promise you that the ending is very happy. But then, aren’t they all? Oh, and Steven! He was another favorite. I just loved watching him and Anna-Grace interact, and I couldn’t help but feel for him with all that he went through, although some of it was caused by his own mistakes. Another thing that I absolutely loved was how the title and the name of the B & B—Grace Notes—connected and how Alexa described it as God singing over us, as found in Zephaniah 3:17. Add that to the other spiritual themes to this story, the ones about redemption and God’s grace, and it made for a story that I know I will be reading again. I absolutely love novels that remind me just how amazing God is, so this book easily made it onto my all-time favorites list. Kim does a wonderful job of weaving together all four main characters’ lives in a way that made them even better and more touching than they would have been alone, and if you add that to the little moments that made me burst into laughter, you have the perfect story on your hands. So, if you couldn’t already tell, I’m giving When Grace Sings all five bookshelves. I couldn’t help but fall in love with everything this novel held between its covers, and the way it finished with a few loose ends made for the perfect lead in for the third novel—When Love Returns—which releases on September 22nd. I know I will be eagerly anticipating reading how the story ends, if I’m not already. (This review is from my blog, spreadinghisgrace.blogspot.com)

I really enjoyed this story with an interesting mix of Amish, Mennonite and English characters. There's also some intrigue and scandal as a twenty-year-old secret threatens to be exposed. I admired Alexa a lot for her determination to make the bed-and-breakfast a go and for how she endeavored to treat Anna-Grace with love even though she struggled with jealousy. I liked Briley, too, even though he was more of a rogue. It was fun to watch him get tamed and and learn more about what faith in God really means. It was nice to get so many points of view in the story, from Alexa and Briley to Anna-Grace and Steven. They had such different backgrounds from each other, not to mention the secrets they were keeping, which made for interesting conflict. I was a little frustrated with Steven and how he wouldn't be up front with his parents or Anna-Grace about what he wanted to do with his life. Faith was a very important element to the story, both for the ones who believed in God to trust Him, pray for wisdom and obey and for Briley to understand for the first time what all of it meant. I did feel a little lost about Alexa's past and how she ended up in Arborville since I hadn't read book one, so I would recommend reading these in order. There are some cute romantic moments, along with some amusing ones. I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you like Amish or Mennonite stories. I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.

This is another excellent book by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I love her ability to take a serious topic, or in this case topics, and turn it into a story of grace, mercy and forgiveness. Heartbreak, betrayal, and secrets abound in this story, just as they did in the first. The author adds sparks of humor and moments of sweetness to keep the story from being too heavy and the plot flowing effortlessly. The characters were, again, excellently developed and written. I enjoyed meeting up with Alexa again. Her sweet, unassuming personality made me want to befriend her from book one. Briley was such a rogue from the beginning, but I was eager to see how his character would develope and I was not disappointed. I was uncertain how I felt about Anna-Grace in the beginning of the story. I wasn't sure how her past would meld or grow into the current situation, and I guess I'll have to wait and see! However, I did come to love her as much as I loved Alexa. Steven seemed very selfish to me. I struggled to like him because of his choices, but in the end, I hope it works out between Anna-Grace and Steven. The message of the story is best stated by Alexa: "God's grace is a precious gift. I think grace is the purest form of mercy, offered even when it's undeserved or rejected." Each character in the story either has to offer grace or accept grace as given to them. As Christians, we are supposed to offer grace as grace was offered to us as sinners by Jesus.  Overall, I loved this book and look forward to more from the Zimmerman Family. **I received this book for free from the publisher through the Litfuse blogging program in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.**

When Grace Sings is book two in The Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy. The first two books of the series have been such a joy to read! I seemed to fly through the pages in order to find out what secrets would be revealed next. I definitely recommend reading book one, When Mercy Rains, first. Otherwise, you may find yourself very confused about the secrets that swirl around this interesting Old Order Mennonite family. Another thing to be prepared for with both of these books is that the problems that arise during the stories end up partially solved at the conclusions of each book, but in both stories, there are open-ended situations that remain unresolved. I already knew, from reading another review, that this was the case. So, I was able to prepare myself. I was able to enjoy this wonderful, and touching, story and know that book three will be the book where everything works itself out. Various characters in the story deal with some pretty deep issues ranging from feelings of not belonging, anger, guilt, and even the fear of people’s judgment. The author did a good job of making likeable characters who also carried around these flaws. I am very interested to see how things come together in the next story and have really enjoyed growing close to the characters in this trilogy. My thanks to the publisher for the complimentary copy of this book that I received through Blogging for Books.

When Grace Sings is a fast paced novel that gives interesting insight into the lives of the Mennonite peoples. It is the second book in The Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy, but can be read as a stand alone. While I did not read the first book, I was able to easily follow the storyline of this book. This story drew me in right from the beginning. There was romance; there were secrets; there were surprises! It is amazing when an author writes a great story, but to do so with two story lines running simultaneously is phenomenal. I was not able to put it down and read it in one sitting.  The characters were very well developed, interesting and real.  You can relate to the struggles they are facing and want to see them succeed. The soul-searching of the characters makes you want to reflect on your own life. One question that really comes to mind while reading is, “Is success worth destroying the lives of others?” I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. My only complaint is the cliffhanger! I want to know what happens and can’t wait for the next book. Thank you to Litfuse Publicity and Blogging for Books for a free copy of When Grace Sings in exchange for my honest review.  No monetary compensation has been received for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

When Grace Sings is another beautiful story by Kim Vogel Sawyer! The second book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy, this novel continues the emotional story that began in Book 1, When Mercy Rains. Because of the family history that runs through this trilogy, I recommend reading these books in order. Kim Vogel Sawyer is a master storyteller who never fails to captivate me with her stories! This story, like its predecessor, is told from multiple points of view. I really enjoy this type of storytelling, as it allows me to truly get to know the characters and also evokes greater emotion as the story unfolds. I loved reading Alexa’s story and revisiting familiar characters, as well as meeting new ones. While the conclusion of this story answers some questions, there are others that linger and leave the reader in eager anticipation of the next release. I enjoyed When Grace Sings and can’t wait to read the final book in this compelling trilogy! I appreciate the opportunity to read When Grace Sings and offer my honest opinion. I received a complimentary copy of this book through Litfuse Publicity.

Kim Vogel Sawyer in her new book “When Grace Sings” Book Two in The Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy published by Waterbrook Press continues the story of Alexa Zimmerman. From the back cover: When trouble roars into quiet Arborville, Alexa and Anna-Grace find themselves the target for discord and exposed secrets. Can they continue to seek the God of all grace amidst the fog of confusion? Alexa Zimmerman wonders if the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville, Kansas will ever fully accept her. Her family roots here aren’t what anyone thought when she first arrived, but she is hopeful that her culinary and hospitality skills will win the skeptics over. The bed-and-breakfast she’s operating needs to succeed so Alexa agrees to allow Briley Forrester, the hotshot reporter from Chicago, to stay as a long-term boarder not knowing his real motives for being amongst the Plain folk. But when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna-Grace Braun, the presence of extended family brings out Alexa’s insecurities and sets Briley on the trail to uncovering a web of hidden truths. Plans for a secure future and the sweetness of young romance hang in the balance when Alexa and Anna-Grace have to face that their secrets are interconnected, binding the two in ways they could not have imagined. They must trust in a loving, heavenly Father and His plan for their futures. Alexa needs the Bed & Breakfast to succeed. Briley needs a major story to keep his newspaper reporter position. Anna-Grace is looking to get married. Steven is very confused about his relationship with Anna-Grace. All these stories are intertwined between the pages of “When Grace Sings”. This is quite a story. The reason for it being so interesting is the characters that Ms. Sawyer has created. I didn’t read the first book in this series. I will correct that mistake. And if you have not read the first book either I recommend that you do as it will help you understand this book better. Alexa, Briley, Anna-Grace and Steven are terrific and each of their actions can affect the lives of each other which makes for a fascinating, sometimes exciting reading. Get ready for a very interesting read that will keep you flipping pages. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

I enjoyed reading this next installment in the Zimmerman Restoration series. You do need to read this series in order as this book picks up right where the first one ends and of course the author leaves us hanging at the end of this one. The way this author writes just makes you want to keep reading and not stop until you reach the end. I also like how the author mixes the Mennonite world with the real world. The author makes the characters so real and the scenes are also described so well that you feel as if you are a part of the story.  I for one would love to stay at this Bed and Breakfast if it was a real place just so I could meet the people there. I enjoyed hearing about Alexa’s story and the B&B. Fans of Amish or Mennonite fiction will enjoy this book.

When Grace Sings is the second book in The Zimmerman Restoration trilogy by Kim Vogel Sawyer. This is not a stand alone novel. You need to read them in order because it's essentially one story. This book wasn't as good as the first, but it was still pretty good. I think the third and final book will be very interesting, and I want to see how she will tie everything up.  Alexa Zimmerman has done it. She has opened up Grace Notes B & B, and has her first guests staying. One of the guests, a Mr. Forrester, is long term so she has to put him in her little cottage. Sad to lose her own little place but happy to see her business starting, she knows its the right thing to do. A single man can't stay in the house with just her and grandmother. Especially such a young and attractive one.... Briley Forrester comes to Arborville to find some dirt on the so called perfect Mennonite community, but when he comes to the B & B he starts to see why everyone he is so enthralled with them. Determined to not be swayed by their kindness, he immediately sets to work. Anna-Grace comes to Grace Notes to stay as a guest, and Alexa almost instantly regrets her decision to host her. Briley senses all the tension and begins to put things together. If he can get them to talk, he would have his story. I enjoyed this book. It wasn't as intense as the first book, but it was still a great story filled with wonderful characters. I love how God is weaved in these stories as effortlessly as breathing. Other "Christian" books feel so forced sometimes like they have to say something about God but aren't sure what. But this author always makes God a focus. This story wasn't about forgiveness, but instead focused on who you are and what your Father in heaven thinks of you. As His child! I especially loved the end of the book. It was so good, but left me hanging! I was like no, what it's over?! I need to read more! ;-) I was given this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review.

To receive grace is to gain something you didn't deserve, much like a prisoner receives a pardon. They deserve punishment for committing crimes, but when they are pardoned, they are receiving something they didn't deserve. That is the definition for grace and also the theme in Kim Vogel Sawyer's second book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy Series. In When Grace Sings, one could misinterpret what it really is about. For Alexa Zimmerman, it is about coming to terms with the recent knowledge that she was adopted and left behind by her birth mother. It's wondering what your purpose is life is supposed to mean when you realize that all the people you believe in your life were your family, really aren't. So in order to find purpose for her life, she takes over running Grace Notes B and B on her grandmother's Mennonite farm. In fact just her appearance alone would beg to ask the question why she doesn't dress like all the others in the Old Order, but she isn't about to convey to anyone what the truth is just yet. Not until she comes to terms with it first. Just beginning to take on guest after all the recent renovations, Alexa wants to prove she can make this business profitable and not have to rely on the finances from her grandmother. She gains a long term book from Briley Forrester, an up and coming reporter who wants the story of a lifetime. Convinced that the Mennonites and Amish aren't exactly as wholesome as they appear, his editor convinces him to stay for a couple months in order to find the story that will prove they are just like the rest of the world in their short comings. But will Briley be able to do that at the cost of hurting Alexa and the people who welcome him into their community with open arms? I received When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer compliments of WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. The one thing I took away from this novel besides its theme on what grace really is, is the quote, "Every man has two equal abilities - to build up or tear down. The challenge lies in knowing which is the right choice." I guess the hardest thing any of us has to master is ability to recognize how our words can either build up or tear down. The hardest thing comes in learning to control what comes out. Sometimes it takes quite a while to figure out God's plan in things when they turn out to not be so favorable in our own eyes and it's learning how to deal with it that shows true growth of character and a healthy dose of grace as well. I rate this one a 4 out of 5 stars and readers will find a great recipe for peace and pecan pie as well as a Reader's Guide at the conclusion of this heartwarming novel.

In When Grace Sings, Kim has continued the saga of the Zimmerman family and the Arborville community, in which they live.  While focusing on the characters of Alexa Zimmerman and Anna-Grace Braun, Kim has shown that in the end, all each of us want is to feel that we belong.  Alexa, until recently, had no knowledge that she was adopted, while Anna-Grace has always known of her adopted status.  Each, however, has conflicting feelings about her status in her family and the Arborville community.  Alexa wants to fit in and be accepted and fears that she never will.  Anna-Grace has feelings of rejection, which she had never felt before, until she is faced with moving into the Arborville community.  Her fiance has inherited a farm in the Arborville community and Anna-Grace soon follows to determine whether or not she can live there. Not only are there insecurities within the two main characters, Kim introduces a tabloid reporter, Briley Forrester, that is determined to show the “dark” side of the Plain life.  His determination leads him to Arborville to “dig up the dirt” and prove that members of Plain communities are not as “perfect” as everyone believes them to be.  He is also determined not to fall victim to his own insecurities. Steven Brungardt, Anna-Grace's fiance, is waging his own spiritual war.  He is determined to be the perfect son.  He believes that in doing so, he needs to deny the call God has placed on his heart. Steven struggles with his call and his sense of duty.  This struggle leads him to become distant, subdued and somewhat dour. How can God bring good from all of these situations and will each character find the Grace, which can set them free from their burdens? Kim Vogel Sawyer is a talented storyteller.  She has a way of weaving her stories so that her readers are brought into her books and discover some truths about God, themselves and those around them, while being entertained.  In When Grace Sings, she has done so again.  Kim has composed a well-written story, which is enhanced by the spiritual struggles each character faces.  She weaves a story of struggle and grace that leaves the reader with a desire to know the conclusion from page one.  The reader will discover throughout the book that God is working in the lives of the characters, even though each fights Him and His Will.    As in all of her books, Kim's talent for writing believable and realistic characters is never lacking.  Each time I was forced to put the book down, the characters and their struggles lingered in my mind, until I could return to their world. Each character discovers that belonging and self worth are only found in the One that can offer eternity, rather than the temporary of this world. Pick up a copy of When Grace Sings and discover, as Alexa, Briley, Anna-Grace and Steven do that at the moment we surrender to the Father, that is the moment when grace sings and lives are made anew.

Kim Vogel Sawyer’s new release When Grace Sings Book 2 of the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy is a brilliant inspirational book! This book picks up with characters from her first book in the trilogy and follows them as they make some hard decisions, learn uncomfortable truths about themselves and brings in a new character who needs lots of grace. As always, once I begin Kim Vogel Sawyer’s books, I have a hard time putting them down. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read inspirational, wholesome books. Read this book and you will not be disappointed!

Briley Forrester, hotshot big city reporter, is in the tiny Old Order Mennonite town of Arborville to dig up some dirt on the residents.  He and his boss think there must be more to the story than the outward appearance of these people.  He stays at the Bed and Breakfast run by Alexa Zimmerman.  She's not Old Order Mennonite but she lives plain since her extended family, the Zimmerman's are.  Both Briley and Alexa have issues from the past that haunt them.  Briley was abandoned at 5 and raised in foster homes.  Alexa was abandoned as an infant and raised by Suzy Zimmerman.   Also featured in the story are Steven Brungardt and Anna-Grace Braun who are "published" to be married.  Steven has inherited a farm in Arborville from his deceased grandfather.  Steven doesn't want to be a farmer, he wants to be a teacher but he doesn't want to disappoint his parents and Anna-Grace.  Anna-Grace isn't sure she wants to go to Arborville either because she has discovered that her birth parents are from there.  She doesn't want to know who they are but she doesn't want to run into them either. This story is a continuation of When Mercy Rains and this book is number 2 in the Zimmerman Restoration series.  Book 1 deals with Suzy Zimmerman's return to her family with the daughter she raised (Alexa) and seeing for the first time since birth her own illegitimate daughter that had been adopted by a cousin.   Time out!  I need to grumble at the author a little:  Mrs. Sawyer, you left us hanging on Suzy at the end of book one.  Now at the end of book two you leave us hanging on Suzy, Alexa AND Anna-Grace.  Book 3 (since this is a trilogy) better be Faith Restored or some such and resolve all three of these.  They are all begging for resolution.   Just so you know, that rant above was in fun.  I love Kim Vogel Sawyer.  She is arguably my FAVORITE of all favorite authors.  She provided this book to me in exchange for a fair and honest review.  I would have snarfed it up anyway because I've been waiting (impatiently) for this next installment in the story.  Please speed-write book number 3, Mrs. Sawyer.

WHEN GRACE SINGS is the second book in Author Kim Vogel Sawyer's Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy Series. After reading Book 1, WHEN MERCY RAINS, I was eager to read more about the Zimmermans, an Old Order Mennonite family in Kansas. This story did not disappoint! Alexa Zimmerman runs a B&B in her grandmother's home, and is hosting a tabloid reporter from Chicago, Briley Forrester. Alexa doesn't know that Briley has hidden motives for being in her community. Events become even more interesting when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna Grace, who is engaged to Steven, a young man with a hidden dream. As in all of this author's books, the characters truly came alive for me and I stayed up very late at night reading--not wanting to close the book! Now I'm very eager to see what happens in Book 3 of this series. WHEN GRACE SINGS is an excellent read and I highly recommend this book. FIVE STARS!!

When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer is the second book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy. The first book in the series was When Mercy Rains. In order to understand what is happening in When Grace Sings you do need to read the first book in the trilogy. Alexa Joy Zimmerman, daughter of Suzanne Zimmerman, has turned her grandmother’s house in Arborville into Grace Notes Bed and Breakfast (the paint job on the Victorian farmhouse sounds beautiful). Alexa is very excited to get a long-term guest. Since it is a man, she is letting him stay in her little guest cottage during his stay (she did not feel it would be appropriate for him to stay in the house with her grandmother). Briley Forrester lives in Chicago and works for Real Scoop. His boss, Len, is tired of headlines about wonderful life is in Amish country. He is sending Briley to find a story. Briley will be staying at the Grace Notes B & B as a long-term guest. Briley does not make a good first impression with his flashy red car, driving fast, and flirting with Alexa as soon as he arrives. Can Alexa handle Briley? What is Briley willing to do for a story? Anna-Grace Braun, who lives in Sommerfield, Kansas, just got engaged to Steven Grungardt. She is so excited. They are to be married in February. Steven is to receive some land and a house in Arborville. It used to belong to his Grandad Meiers, but he passed away and left it to Kevin (Steven’s brother). Kevin left the community and has never claimed the inheritance. Steven’s parents petitioned the court to give the inheritance to them. Steven’s parents then turned over the property to Steven. Steven and his father are going to Arborville to check out the property. Anna-Grace finally finds out that one of her biological parents live in Arborville and now she is not sure she can live in that city. Anna-Grace decides to spend time in the city to get to know the people and help decorate the house. Alexa offers to let Anna-Grace stay at Grace Notes, but Alexa did not realize how difficult it was going to be having her around. Alexa feels like an interloper and Anna-Grace is the real granddaughter. Stephen is doing what is expected of him. He is fixing up the house, preparing to marry, and be a farmer. However, the only thing he wants to do is teach. Stephen hopes that Anna-Grace will decide that she does not want to live in Arborville, so he can sell the house (and go to college). Paul Aldrich is doing repairs on the Stephen’s house and finally gets to meet his birth daughter. Will Stephen get to achieve his dream of teaching? Will Anna-Grace find out that Paul is her biological father? Will Alexa get over her feelings of not belonging? Will Briley Forrester find his big story and who will it hurt? Read When Grace Sings to find out the answers to these questions plus much more. I give When Grace Sings 4 out 5 stars. It is a good story, but I kept finding myself shouting at my book. I was telling Anna-Grace to grow up and get a back bone and for Alexa to realize that she does belong (and has a wonderful, loving family). I look forward to reading the last book in the trilogy to see what happens to the Zimmerman family. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley (and the publisher) in exchange for an honest review.

I cannot tell how much I love love love Kim Vogel Sawyer and her stories. They are always so full of faith and grace. When Grace Sings definitely does not disappoint. As with any other story written by Kim, this book is beautifully written and I feel a connection with the characters as if they are part of my family. I love that this series continues with the lives of the characters in each book. I cannot wait to read book 3 to see what happens with each one of them.  Fabulous book! 100 stars.
