Review: A Maze of Grace by Trish Ryan

 In her first book, Trish Ryan chronicled the ways in which finding faith lead her to the happily-ever-after ending that had eluded her for so long. Only it wasn't an ending. It was a beginning.

In A MAZE OF GRACE, Ryan picks up where she left off, sharing the early years of her marriage, and the challenges that both shaped and startled her: temptations regarding fidelity, the anxiety of shifting body image, the awkward nature of following Jesus in a decidedly secular family and city, and struggles (depression, trying to conceive) that made her wonder if God had lost her file.

With appealing candor, Ryan sweeps the reader into her life and ponders questions and issues that we all face, dropping nuggets of wisdom along the way that are sure to inspire, encourage and help readers from all walks of life.  description taken from here.

I enjoyed Ryan's writing style.  The book itself was a collection of short stories about Ryan's life.  She knows how to engage her audience, which is a nice change from a few books I have read lately.  Her book is very honest, which is refreshing.  I think a lot of people will enjoy this book.

**I did not get paid for this post.  All opinions are 100% mine unless otherwise stated.  I received a complementary book in order to write a real and honest review.**
