It is the night of the Second Annual Smallest Angel Ball being held at the Ritz-Carlton to benefit the neonatal unit at the local hospital.   Sarah Sloane, wife and mother of two, is the organizer for this benefit.   The ball was her idea and her way of giving back after the neonatal unit saved her daughter, Molly, three years ago. For the past two years this benefit has been the most important and productive event in San Francisco.

Everything seems perfect until an earthquake, registering a 7.9 on the Richter scale, strikes the San Francisco area. This is the second biggest disaster this city has ever known. Suddenly, amid the destruction and devastation, secrets are exposed, lives are torn apart and beliefs are questioned. Sarah finds that Seth, her husband for the past five years, is in reality a stranger.   He is not the man she thought she married. Melanie Free, the nineteen-year-old Grammy winner and performer for the night, questions her life’s goals and, perhaps, discovers her life’s purpose. Everett Carson, the photographer covering the event for Scoop magazine, gets the courage to revisit some of his past.   A recovering alcoholic and at one time a war correspondent, his personal problems have reduced him to covering social events. Through it all, Sister Mary Magdalen Kent, known for helping the homeless and fighting the city government on their behalf, interacts with the victims of the earthquake. San Francisco ’s version of Mother Teresa, she suddenly questions things she took for granted before today and has some serious decisions to make.

 

AMAZING GRACE is a thoroughly absorbing novel.   The reader becomes totally involved.   It is filled with suspense, mystery and romance. As the reader becomes familiar with the characters and observes how a person’s true personality appears in the face of tragedy, Ms. Steel proves again why she is such a well known and beloved author.   This book is indeed hard to put down. I highly recommend AMAZING GRACE.
