When everything crumbles, her chance for a new beginning hangs in the balance.

Ruth Anniston survived an injury that left her physically scarred, broken, and angry at God. Now, she finds herself working behind the scenes as a kitchen and dining room supervisor at the El Tovar Hotel, hidden away from curious eyes and with little hope of finding love. When money begins to disappear from the hotel, Ruth's entire livelihood is put at risk when she lands on the list of suspects.

Frank Henderson has at last succeeded in obtaining his dream job as head chef at the El Tovar. But competition in the kitchen is fierce, and one mistake could cost him his future. As the thefts at the hotel continue, and his affection for Ruth grows, Frank's career--and his heart--are in jeopardy.

As tensions run high, Ruth and Frank must work together to save the El Tovar. They find themselves growing closer . . . but can their combined ingenuity overcome the odds against them?


A Mark of Grace is filled with heartache, love, and danger in a beautiful setting. I enjoyed revisiting the historic El Tovar Hotel through the pages of this spiritually satisfying and sweet romance from Kimberley Woodhouse.

A delightful and sometimes heartbreaking tale of faith and mercy, A Mark of Grace is a read you won't want to miss. As a lover of history, I especially enjoyed learning about the Harvey Girls, the real-life western waitresses who were oh so much more than mere servers of food. Heroine Ruth Anniston faces and overcomes challenges in a way that inspires and encourages. Truly one of Kimberley Woodhouse's best.
