Pastor Landris is being hounded by the IRS for tax evasion. He suspects his shady, but well-meaning, brother is somehow to blame. In the meantime, Pastor's church board is a group of whiny know-it-alls, making it difficult to minister, and he's planning a wedding to his soul mate, Johnny Mae. Concurrently, Johnny Mae is investigating the whereabouts of a rare jewled necklace.

In a strange twist of fate, Pastor's family comes across Lena Patterson, who is doing everything in her power to make a difference in the lives of her daughter and granddaughter. No one in either family is prepared for the twisting journey—thanks to the necklace—they're about to embark on.

Wings of Grace is an enthralling story. Excellent plot layering, compassionate characters and a strong faith message make this book a page-turning adventure. (Feb., 336 pp., $15.00)
