The Angel Of Music
Glasgow Grace by Marion Ueckermann is a delightfully romantic Christian novel. It is set in Scotland over the Christmas and New Year period and I loved it.
The novel has beautiful descriptions of the places where the action takes place. For me, memories of Skye and Portree are evoked. It was fabulous to read of places where I had been. For anyone who lives or has holidayed in Scotland, Glasgow Grace will unleash your own memories.
Glasgow Grace has the theme of true love as described in 1 Corinthians: 13. True love includes not only a couple but God too. True love is kind and considerate. True love will last no matter what life throws at you.
The novel deals with appearances and status. For some people looking good and sounding right with a high powered job is important. God’s standard is all to do with the state of our hearts. Our beauty is measured by our goodness of heart. Our jobs, our clothes, the way we speak all count for nothing if our heart is rotten.
The weather adds to the romantic atmosphere of the novel – snow at Christmas in Scotland – what could be more perfectly romantic?
The Scottish atmosphere is enhanced by the use of authentic dialect. This does make it hard to read at times but as it is spoken by minor characters, there is no problem working out what was said.
Glasgow Grace is a very romantic novel. It has the perfect setting with the perfect cast. It has a real ‘feel good’ factor and is a delightful afternoon’s read. I loved it. I always love Marion Ueckermann’s writings and end up with a smile on my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart.
