Teaser Tuesday (7)

My selection this week is "The Edge of Grace" by Christa Allen. The book blurb goes like this: "A family ultimately explores the struggle of acceptance, the grace of forgiveness, and moving from prejudice to loving others as they are, not as we'd like them to be." 
The story intrigues me because I don't normally, as a rule, read Christian themed books, (I do read and accept GLBTQ literature) but this one promises to be a slight departure from mainstream Christian fiction. I have no quotes from the book yet, but if the book blurb is correct, I'll be seeing if it promises what it delivers. If I encounter "we hate anyone who isn't like us" kind of prejudices with no turnaround or reversal at the end where the character realizes they've been mean and judgmental the whole time, then I promise a scathing review. If this novel does deliver acceptance between beginning and end, I will be one happy blogger. So we'll see, won't we? =)
