An excellent read! If you read books one and two, you absolutely must purchase book three. The trilogy is excellent! I could not put either book down. The characters are so lifelike. If there is anything I disliked, it’s in Book One where parts of the story is told from two different views. That caused the story to drag on a little [too] long. Apart from that, very well-written. – FlowersMiMi
Absolutely a must-read. The exploration of the complexity of women’s sexuality was reminiscent of Alice Walker’s The Color Purple. A beautifully rendered story that demonstrates that love happens on many levels. – Kya42
[B]y this [third] book I had grown emotionally attached to the characters and was moved to tears as I read. – Shanshan, March 24, 2015
Grace’s character by far is the [most] complex of all the characters I’ve come across in the book and I can’t help but hate her one moment and feel sorry the next. – 10914 Reviews, Jan. 4, 2015
At first I wasn’t sure about this story but I really got caught up in the lives of these characters and couldn’t put books two and three down. I would love to know what happens with Tracy and her high school basketball and if she goes on to play college basketball. – Lorna Guice, Dec. 23, 2014
Great series of books! Absolutely loved them! Hope there is more to come!! – mia muse, March 18, 2013
Excellent! I couldn’t stop reading. – G. Teresa Thomas, March 4, 2013
Once again, an excellent book. I just finished reading book 3….I have to say that by the time I finished reading book 3, I wanted more. Please tell me you plan to write a book 4. I would definitely purchase it! – G. Teresa Thomas, March 4, 2013
My friends and I really enjoyed [your] books and are referring them to others; however, the ending for the third book disappointed us. :-( The ending should have been the other way around…that would have been the right ending.
There needs to be a fourth installment to this series. Lol. – Lucie Dimond, Feb. 11, 2013
Janet Walker is a very descriptive writer. Her ability to take a story and bring it alive on paper [is] incredible. At times I had to remind myself that it wasn’t a movie. She so beautifully gave such detail into the lives of the characters that they become real. Her attention to details in the settings and time-relevant historical information makes it even more compelling a story. I did not give it a perfect rating because I am left with some confusion and wondering. By the end of the series I’m still not sure the audience or the intention of the book. How important is the specific reference to Jehovah’s Witness as the faith setting? Is this book promoting the idea of homosexuality as an identity? [The author's answer is No.] Does Pastor Charmaine believe there is a place for the homosexual lifestyle in the life of the believer? What becomes of Tracy Sullivan? – Anonymous, March 30, 2015
Enjoyed all three books. A great read! – Anonymous, Feb. 5, 2014
I read the series in a month….What a powerful story of love and anger. I am looking forward to a 4th Amazed By Her Grace. – nookallday, Nov. 7, 2013
Highly recommended. I’ve read all three and I’m hoping for a fourth! – justjune222, Nov. 6, 2013
Truly Amazing. One of the most moving, insightful and powerful stories that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Kudos to the author for truly bringing this story and [its] characters to life. – Anonymous, July 14, 2013.
This was my first time reading [a] Janet Walker work, and it will not be my last. I really enjoyed reading this book because it was different from all the other books. If [you're] looking for something fresh/different, this is the book for you!!!

Great read! I found this book to be very very interesting. It has a “Precious-meets-Coach Carter” vibe. It kept my attention throughout the whole novel (which is impressive to me considering I’m the type to become easily bored with a book). I just bought books two and three and I’m excited to see where the story goes. I also enjoyed reading from the perspective of Grace as well as Tracy. That definitely made things more interesting. I would definitely recommend!

Heartwarming story about a young girl's battered life. [There] are times when you wonder or try and guess what’s really going on, but just continue reading. The author gives you an amazing story. Thank you, Janet Walker, for a beautiful novel.

Can’t wait for part 2. A touching and uplifting story about 2 girls abused by those we’re supposed to trust the most, our parents. The child that was sexually abused is now the teacher of the younger one that was physically abused. I think the teacher may teach her more than the school subject, like how to overcome and…live thru the terror.
– Mrs. Carr, Nov. 4, 2013
Very good read and very descriptive. Loved the religious references being that I can relate. I was also able to FEEL the emotions as things happened with the characters.
– WildOnce, Nov. 2, 2013
Not bad at all, so far…I just wished the writer wouldn’t have told us every little thing about Grace’s house, from floors to wall and then her office from the wood to the knobs. Lol.
– Justice, Oct. 6, 2013
Awesome story. Well-written. Realistic characters. Be sure to read all three in chronological order. You won’t be disappointed. I couldn’t put the book down.
– L. Autry, Sept. 28, 2013
Loved it!!! This book is a great read, and kept me wanting more. Time for book 2, then book 3. Amazing!!!!!
– mstoot, July 31, 2013
I enjoyed the first book of Amazed By Her Grace. The storyline flowed easily and it provided a good backdrop for the characters' development. It…had plenty of ups and downs. It had you mad at certain characters and rooting for others…. The cover art was great…[a]nd really made me want to get to the story.
– book luvin’ sistergirl, July 18, 2013
This first book of a three-book series provides a solid foundation of the characters and acts as a backdrop to the remaining story.
– Amber, June 16, 2013
Part 2 was just as fascinating as 1.
– kymberly jackson, Dec. 4, 2014
So, I guess these books got better as the storyline progressed. This book kept me more occupied than book 1. It was nice to see Miss Grace opening up with Tracy, but it was still sad to see her messing up her own marriage. This book takes you on [an] emotional journey.
– ChelleBrooks, May 19, 2014
Awesome. I loved the Trilogy!! Janet Walker writes very well and I look forward to other books by her. I recommended the book to my book club.
– Nadine Harrison, May 7, 2014
The author takes you on a roller coaster of emotions. Throughout different parts of the book I cried, laughed, got frustrated, worried, etc. Great work by the author!!
– Mrs. Carr, Nov. 6, 2013
Book 2 is completely engrossing—I read it in less than 2 days! Looking for the final book now as I’m writing this.
– Christine Ann Jones, Nov. 1, 2013
Omg! At first I was like um…This book is not gonna be all that... But the more I read, the more I found myself caught up in each scene. The words were so vivid it was as if I was actually there! I laughed, I cried... I’m on book III already. Definitely a great read!
– Ro Ward Latigue, Sept. 13, 2013
Speechless!!!! I’m sitting here trying to take in what I just read SPEECHLESS, not knowing this book was going to take me so far left but loving every minute.
– mstoot, Aug. 5, 2013
Walker manages to not only tell a good story, but to take the reader on an emotional journey. Book two is full of twists and turns; as soon as you think you know what will happen next, Walker throws a curve ball. I look forward to reading the final book of this series. The story flows very well and Walker impressively illustrates the complexities of the main characters and the issues they face.
– Amber, June 20, 2013
This book kept me captivated until the very last page. I read all three in the series and it was well worth my time and money. The characters came alive and I felt real emotion for them...especially for Grace and her husband. There were a couple of scenes I could do without, but 95% of the entire series was well-written and the story flowed very well from one book to the next. The ending was beautiful. I would definitely read more books by this author.
– wamala laws, Feb. 22, 2015
This was a great read. An awesome story that kept me captivated the entire time. Tracy’s story is all too familiar, and everyone wishes they could have an ‘Amazing Grace Gresham’ in their lives. I would have switched up the ending (just my personal preference), but great writing, nonetheless. Keep up the great work!

Great book! Didn’t expect that ending, but magnificent!
– Shazz, March 20, 2014
I found the trilogy to be a great book. I never wanted to put it down....I finished the book in less than 24 hours.
– Tamecha Barnes, Feb. 15, 2014
Amazing! Read this series of books!!! I couldn’t put them down. Read all in less than a week ;) You will be very intrigued and wanting more.
– Carol, Dec. 21, 2013
Amazing Grace! Excellent read. Volume III was definitely a page turner. I am really happy for the ending. I was truly praying for…them. Grace’s childhood had not been an easy one, but through “grace and mercy” she was given angels to see her through to adulthood, albeit lots of baggage hidden behind a regal facade. Her acts of kindness and her “pay it forward” attitude unleashed a terrible whirlwind in her very, very controlled life. Or was it. To not give spoilers, let’s just say Grace needed a metamorphosis so she could enjoy her life to the fullest...something she had not done in a very long time, if ever. Great read. You will not be disappointed.
– Harri1025, Nov. 27, 2013
The title describes the book: amazing. It has drama, love, sacrifice, sadness, happiness and unexpected surprises to keep you interested.
– Mrs. Carr, Nov. 23, 2013
The book was as wonderful as the previous 2 in the series. Would love to find out what happens (happened) to Tracy when she gets older.
– Christine Ann Jones, Nov. 1, 2013
Truly Amazing!! This is a masterfully written story of overcoming abuse, learning to trust again and the re-opening of one’s heart. The lead character is smart, classy, sexy and very real. Kudos to Janet Walker.

This is a very good read. I read all three books within four days. I wanted to know more about Miz Grace. I hope there will be a part 4….
– ayana t, July 10, 2013
Walker continued the excellent storytelling displayed in books one and two. The issues discussed in this series are complex, so it may be difficult to digest for some; however, it is a worthy read.
