Full of Grace
Grace, who's from a very Italian Catholic family, is in love with a man who's not Italian and also doesn't follow religion. That is the worst combination in a boyfriend and that separates her from her family. When Michael starts developing strange symptoms, the family starts to realize that something could really be wrong. Michael's illness, along with his mother's death, really help Grace's family be open about his beliefs and they start to welcome him into the family.
When Grace, a travel planner, plans a trip for some elders to go to Mexico, she also takes Michael along. They both know a little about the miracles of the Lady of Guadalupe and in Mexico, they are hoping for a little miracle as well. Their experience in Mexico persuade Grace and Michael to rethink their philosophies about religion and the way of life.
I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. The first sentence reels you into a story that you are unlikely to forget. The characters suffered from problems that any family can relate to. Everything about this book was great. It surpassed my expectations and I will definately be looking forward to reading more by this author.
