My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Telling is part 3 in the Seasons of Grace trilogy by Beverly Lewis and it is absolutely the best out of the three. I bawled through half of the story because it was just so beautiful!
In this book, Grace and her new friend Heather take off to Ohio in search of Grace’s mother who has left her family under mysterious circumstances. They arrive, only to find out that Lettie has already left and Grace is forced to return home without her. She returns home with a heavy heart as the brethren are discussing the shunning of Lettie.
Lettie continues her search for the baby she had out of wedlock and was forced to give up. After hitting many roadblocks she eventually returns home to ask for forgiveness from her family and her community. She confesses her past sins finds peace and forgiveness from the Lord–but will her family be able to offer the same forgiveness?
Heather continues her battle against cancer and finally earns the support of her dad and finds new love. And speaking of love…Grace finally has some success in that department as well! I was very pleased with how things turned out for her!
This book was a fantastic tale of forgiveness and finding freedom of the guilt of past indiscretions. I had to have cried like a baby through most of this last book. I was so pleased with how it turned out!
