Book: Sunday Morning Song (Days of Grace)
Author: Tia McCollors
Review: Sunday, April 12, 2015
For ten years, Quinn Montgomery endured her husband’s abuse, which always escalated on Sunday afternoons, until she finally left him, escaping with her young son, Devin. With her ex-husband behind bars, she makes a fresh start in a new city, ready to forget the scars of yesterday. A traffic violation brings her face-to-face with a police officer she recognizes—the one who tended to Devin while his father was put under arrest. While she remembers his face, she remembers him more for his kindness and compassion, and gladly agrees to give him her phone number in exchange for a waived ticket.
Leviticus “Levi” Gray could never forget Quinn Montgomery. Although the first time they met, the right side of her face was swollen from her husband’s violent blows, the look in her eyes never changed. He sees a woman who longs to be loved, and he plans on being God’s vehicle for that love. Yet his pursuit is not without challenges. Quinn works hard to keep others out of the life she’s built for her and her son, and Levi soon realizes that even though her ex-husband is the one behind bars, Quinn inhabits a prison of her own.
With the help of Quinn’s confidante and a lot of prayer, Levi comes up with a plan to break down the barrier she’s built around her heart. But can he manage to woo her without scaring her off?
