It was not too many months ago that I read a wonderful book applying the lessons of grace to the marriage relationship. The Grace-Filled Marriage was a non-fiction work that explored the role of grace in the lives of two people who have chosen to spend the rest of their lives together. In Sanction, Paula Wiseman has explored the same concepts in a work of fiction that combines characters from two previous series, “The Covenant of Trust Series” and “The Foundation Series”.
Grace, as demonstrated in this book, is needed by all members of a family, regardless of circumstances, age, or the state of their spiritual life. Ms. Wiseman takes the lesson a step further and makes it clear that it is not just members of a family that need grace, but all members of the family of God as well. The question that must be answered is whether the Molinsky family could learn that lesson before it falls apart?
As in her other books, Paula Wiseman has given life to her characters - each page leaving the reader wanting more. It was true from page 1 to the last page of the book. It appears that the author is already working on the next book exploring the on-going lives begun in “The Covenant of Trust Series” and “The Foundation Series”. This reader cannot wait for more.
