"The Masterpiece" by Francine Rivers

My review...

Grace Moore and Roman Velasco have been impacted by childhood traumas few people know about. Their paths cross when Grace accepts a job as Roman’s assistant. Both are searching for peace … the kind that can only be found in Christ and through his transforming love.

Rivers’ latest is a tale of redemption filled with Biblical truths. It’s richly detailed and contains complex characters and beautiful prose. The story alternates between the present and past, showing the scars Roman and Grace keep hidden. Secondary characters are well utilized. Broken characters are relatable, and they demonstrate the power of God’s mercy in our lives as they show that, while broken, they (and we) are still God’s masterpieces. As a result, the faith message is played out through the characters’ words and actions. The cover is gorgeous, and I love how the author explains how it came to be a part of the story. Discussion questions are included, so this would work well for a book club read, as well.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy from Tyndale, but I wasn’t required to leave a positive review.
