Author: Sarah Grace Grzy
Blurb: Piper Redding is a loner, but lonely. Everyone she loves has abandoned her and opening her heart to others is just asking for more pain. She can’t help but blame herself for her brother’s tragic death six years ago, and in her guilt, she shuts herself off from the world. No one could love her—not even the God who promised to be there for her but wasn’t.
For paramedic Ezra Bryant, failure is not an option. He’s had enough of it, and only by God’s grace is he able to put it behind him. But when a traumatic event brings Piper’s greatest fear and Ezra’s failures to light, can they use that event to allow God to mend their broken pieces? Can love triumph over fear, and grace over guilt?
Living Without You addresses the pain and loneliness that comes from feeling guilty over the death of a loved one. I can not begin to imagine the pain and heartache that would come from that kind of loss. Piper is strong yet she needs someone to walk alongside her. At the same time, Ezra finds himself caught up looking after Piper, his best friend’s sister.
This book illustrates how even times of utter despair, someone can reach out to God for answers. Even when we feel the farthest from God, we can still talk to Him and desire answers. I expect a book set during the holiday season to be filled with lightness and happiness instead of death, nightmares, violence, and loneliness. But this book pulled me into the story.
So check it out for yourself.
Author Bio: Sarah Grace Grzy is a voracious reader, and if it weren’t for this crazy thing called ‘Life,’ she’d be tempted to spend all her days in front of a wood stove, book in one hand, coffee mug in the other.
A lover of learning, she finds enjoyment in many things and has more hobbies than she knows what to do with. Sarah Grace is a freelance web and graphic designer, and when not working, spending time with her ever-growing family, or reading, she can be found painting, playing the piano, or fangirling with her sisters and friends. Sarah Grace inhabits the State of Great Lakes, and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else–unless it meant she could have a baby penguin, in which case, she’d gladly move to the South Pole.
