*I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Throne of Grace by Cecily Wolfe is a Historical Fiction Christian Romance set in 1893; Newport, Rhode Island. The dashingly rich and handsome Arthur Davenport has a mission in his heart to help the impoverished. When he meets a girl walking along the beautiful cliff face who speaks to his soul; he breaks the class structures and seeks her company and support. Josie's and Arthur's passion for God leads them to stand against society's harassments and create a friendship that leads slowly but deeply into love.
The audiobook plays out like one of the original Hallmark movies. Just cliche enough that you get swept up in the romance of it all but with characters whose depth goes beyond who they like. Josie's choices aren't light hearted 'oh who shall I love' ditsy choices but serious life altering choices that affect not only herself but the livelihood of her mother. Arthur thinks beyond his mission and his lady to gain the love and support of his family.
