A Touch of Grace

Snelling, Lauraine

Because she is deaf, Grace has always had to rely on everyone else, therefore earning the nickname "Grace Always". But she wants to break out of that mold and her opportunity comes when Jonathan Gould arrives from the city to stay with the Bjorklands. His city ways and her country style seem to blend well together to the point where Grace leaves home to go to New York. Now she has to rely on herself to break barriers and prove that she can survive on her own.
