“Equal parts inspiring and poignant, Amazing Gracie kept me up late reading to find out if two completely opposite sisters on a motorcycle road trip will find what it is their hearts are searching for.

Amazing Gracie is the kind of book we all need right now!”

—Kay Bratt, Bestselling Author of Wish Me Home

About Amazing Gracie

CJ has returned from war. But she has not left the war behind. The one bright spot in her life is her nine-year-old sister, Amazing Grace—Mazey. When CJ heads off on a cross-country motorcycle trip to visit the homes of her fallen friends, Mazey somehow convinces CJ to let her tag along. It isn't the journey CJ expected, but it is the journey she needs.

And when Mazey's quest takes a surprising turn, both CJ and Mazey discover that this road trip has been headed to an undisclosed destination all along.

About the Series

Unforgiven, New Mexico has faltered for years, tripping and stumbling to the edge of default. Doubly unlucky—not only at the end of a defunct railway spur, but it’s on Route 66—the abandoned part. It’s home to 1,500 good, if quirky characters and a few old soreheads. But they’re people who care about each other, and their town.

These are only a few of their stories.
