This is book two in Beverly Lewis' Seasons of Grace series. In book 1 Grace's mother, Lettie, leaves in the middle of the night because of a secret. The secret is revealed to reader in the book, however, in the story the family still doesn't know what the secret is and why Lettie left the community. The Missing picks up where The Secret leaves off. There are still some mysteries as the book continues. I love Beverly Lewis' writing style. She keeps you wanting more. I can't wait to get my hands on book three, The Telling. Let's get the family out of the dark and on with their life. Will life ever get back to the way it use to be? Will Grace and Heather find momma? All hopefully will be revealed in The Telling. You won't be disappointed if you start reading any of Beverly Lewis' books.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
