NEW REVIEW: Vanessa Davis Griggs - Goodness And Mercy
Vanessa Davis Griggs
Goodness And Mercy
5 out of 5 books
Gabrielle Mercedes had a dream like every little girl...she wanted to become a dancer. An unfortunate event put a delay on her life's dream, and her life took another direction. When Gabrielle started to wonder what her purpose in life was, she turned to God to find out what's been missing in her life. When she found a church that she enjoyed attending, the Lord spoke to her heart again when she found out that the church had a dance ministry.
At this point, Gabrielle knew things were falling right where they needed to be. Then she meets a handsome man by the name of Zachary Wayne Morgan. Zachary was not only handsome, but he was a successful businessman. They started attending church together, and nothing could make Gabrielle happier. But she will realize that sometimes happiness can be tested. Something from her past could put a permanent wedge between her and Zachary. Will Gabrielle be able to hold on to her faith while struggling with her past?
While reading Goodness and Mercy, it will make you laugh, cry, shout, and praise God. This book has a lot of emotion, and I thoroughly enjoyed the realization of each character. You felt for Gabrielle when her past came back to haunt her and prayed with her when she was trying to make it through. The way Vanessa Davis Griggs wrote this novel was outstanding. There was just enough detail so that you would understand what was going on. Goodness and Mercy was a true page-turner and will make you want more and more.
