An Unexpected Grace

By Kristin Kreisler

A poignant, uplifting novel of one woman’s journey to healing, and the surprising soul mate that helps guide her there.

Lila Elliot knows she’s lucky. A shooting rampage at her office left several colleagues dead and others seriously wounded. Lila’s injuries will heal in time. Yet though she gratefully retreats to her best friend’s house to recuperate, Lila can’t quite move past her fear and anger. Being drafted into caring for Grace–a shaggy, formerly abused golden retriever–only adds to her stress. Lila has been terrified of dogs since childhood. But Grace, like Lila, needs time and space to recover.

Grace keeps her distance, sensing Lila’s wariness,
and only perks up for Adam, the neighbor who
rescued her. Though struggling to make sense of her
recent tragedy, Lila, an accomplished artist, begins
to see beauty in Grace’s wisps of fur and haunted
eyes. As Adam points out, Grace, too, has suffered List through no fault of her own. And in helping Grace to trust, Lila is being gently nudged toward the courage she needs to do the same.

Rich in warmth and humor, An Unexpected Grace is a story of compassion and connection, and of finding that what truly makes us whole again may be the love we give away.
