Book Review: "No Greater Gift" by Teresa H. Morgan
History professor Grace Ryan returns to her hometown to help her grandmother turn her journals into a book while her neighbor, Erik Petersson, sorts through Grace's grandfather's records and notes to write a book about his work in the Manhattan Project. When Grace arrives, her grandmother is being loaded into an ambulance. Her last words were of a crime, treason, and finding the truth. Together, Grace and Erik wade through the information as evidence seems to pile up that will tear Grace's already fragile relationship with her family apart. When someone turns to violence to stop Grace's search, will Erik and Grace find the truth before it is too late?
This book touched on several tough subjects like abuse, unjust accusations, infidelity, and divorce. They were dealt with in a way that was not graphic or jarring, but in a gentle manner. I liked Grace and Erik and grew frustrated when they were accused of things that they did not do and their side of the story was not listened to or believed. I liked their reliance on God, but also the honesty that it isn't always easy to do that. I did guess what had happened to Katrina fairly early on, but it played out slightly differently than I expected and made me second guess what I'd thought. I liked the quotes from Churchill and the entries from Annie's journals. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to other books written by Teresa Morgan.
