A Maze Of Grace: A Memoir of Second Chances by Trish Ryan

A Maze of Grace: A Memoir of Second Chances A synopsis of this book from Goodreads:
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.

My take on this book: A Maze Of Grace A Memoir of Second Chances is a very fascinating  look at the life of Trish Ryan.Her honesty in the problems she faced early in her marriage were often humorous but also very real.
The author shares so many personal aspects of her life such as dealing with infertility that my heart literally ached for her as I read her struggles with this very difficult issue.
This is a story of one persons journey while trying to figure out the answers about God and life. I love reading about other peoples faith in God and how he works in their life, its always so uplifting.
Even though this is the second book the author has written about her life, I had no problem jumping right in and reading it, although I do plan on going back and reading the first book titled He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, because she has a way of telling her story that makes you want to know whats happened.
I easily rate this book a solid 5 and if your looking for a great read that will give you hope then this book is for you.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.
