In A MAZE OF GRACE, Ryan picks up where she left off, sharing the early years of her marriage, and the challenges that both shaped and startled her: temptations regarding fidelity, the anxiety of shifting body image, the awkward nature of following Jesus in a decidedly secular family and city, and struggles (depression, trying to conceive) that made her wonder if God had lost her file.
With appealing candor, Ryan sweeps the reader into her life and ponders questions and issues that we all face, dropping nuggets of wisdom along the way that are sure to inspire, encourage and help readers from all walks of life.
Reading Group Guide
Trish Ryan is the kind of gal I'd love to go out to lunch with. She is honest, funny, and not afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve. She says things I've thought of but didn't dare say yet she's clean enough that her parents could read her books and not blush.
This is Trish Ryan's "After Happily Ever After" memoir. Her transition from single to married, her feelings of contradiction toward a hyphenated society, her uncooperative uterus, and so many other experiences she articulates so beautifully. I found myself laughing with her then aching for her later. It's not pity, mind you. It's understanding the married woman in me.
