Devon Roberts was familiar with loss. He’d lost his wife and, in a way, he’d lost himself. Moving through life with two kids, doing everything he could to make life good again for his son and daughter, meant romance was the last thing on his mind.

Until he saw her.


She was the first person to make him feel as though loving someone else wouldn’t be wrong.

Even though he thought his loss was unbearable, he never could have fathomed she might have had more slip through her fingers.

He’d fought before; fought for his family, for his love, and for his life. But her fight, although buried deep and festering within, was a fight he wasn’t sure he had the strength to overcome.

All he knew for sure was that his life was better in the presence of Grace.

The Presence of Grace
Anie Michaels

The emotions in this book were both heartbreaking and uplifting. This was such a charming story with so many feels. A story about two lost people who thought they would never find love again.

Devon is a widower with two kids who mean everything to him. After his wife passed away, he put them first. He made changes so they would always feel loved and secured. Along the way he put his needs asides. Romance had no place in his life or heart. It seemed like it never would be.

Grace was recovering from a past that left her devastated. Slowly rebuilding her life, she assumed her future would only include lonely nights without love. Being a teacher gave her fulfillment, even as she knew something was missing, but letting anyone in would be too costly.

Then one day Devon walks into her classroom. Realizing their unexpected history, they feel an immediate connection, but there is apprehension on both sides. How do you give love a chance when both have lost so much? And can you really open your heart to love again when you lose your spouse to death?

Devon and Grace’s journey was not an easy one. They both had so much to overcome to be able to move forward. But even if you want something so bad, opening yourself up to another person is not easy. But Devon, he was such a caring, loving sweet man. He was not perfect, not in any way, but he was perfect for Grace and his kids. I loved him so much in this story.

While reading, it was so sweet to see Devon and Grace come to know each other. Two people who have been hurt and suffered such devastating loss in their own ways, finally opening up and letting love in. And you cannot help but love Ruby and Jax, Devon’s’ kids.

I really enjoyed reading this story. It was heart-wrenching, emotional and sweet love story. There was no angst or drama just two people finding their way to each other.
