CAN GRACE GIVE NEW LIFE TO A DANCER’S FORGOTTEN DREAMS?
DETROIT, MI (ChristianPRgroup) - In a gritty new book from the popular author with a growing African American audience, Marilynn Griffith introduces readers to Grace Okoye, a promising young dancer whose career was cut short by a brutal assault that left her scarred for life. Twenty years later, when her past gets in the way of her happiness, she heeds the invitation of her dance instructor and returns home to help hurting children and rediscover the rhythms of grace. What she doesn’t expect is to meet a man who already seems to know her beat. But for all they share in common, the biggest thing in Grace’s life is noticeably absent in his—faith. She’s finally found the love of her life, but can she choose between him and God?
In Rhythms of Grace (Revell Books, ISBN 978-0-8007-3278-3, Paperback, $12.99), Griffith’s real but redemptive style offers a positive addition to urban fiction where strong characters overcome their broken pasts and inspire readers.
