I appreciated that the author tackled the real-life misperception that followers of Christ will have perfect lives. One thing I remember in particular was when Esther pondered over the fact that her life of ease prior to cancer might be because Satan didn’t perceive her as a threat. As Christians, we want the devil to fear how we will move on God’s behalf. That stuck with me.
Esther was a very likable character. Her father … well, he reminds me a little too much of someone I know, and I strongly disliked him from the beginning.
I wrestled with whether to give this a four or five star. I did appreciate that it didn’t revolve around romance, but it was a bit too heavy for me. I love books that discuss God and let you watch characters grow spiritually, but I prefer small doses. But that’s just my personal preference, and I didn’t want to penalize the author for that. Grace in Strange Disguise truly is an inspiring work of art. So 5 stars 💚💙💜
