My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series deserves every award it gets!I loved every book and this is the last and it makes me sooooo sad. I want to be able to read all the books again like they are brand new to me. The stories will hook you from the very beginning and each will make you crave the next book.

Grace has a journey she needs to go through. She needs to heal but some will let her go, some will betray her, and some will just love her. This book was the master to the end of this series. I don’t want to give anything away but its one of those books that needs be begin without the knowledge of what happened just so you can feel the journey.

This book and series were EVERYTHING. Everyone needs this soul shattering series in their life!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surviving Grace by Virginia Wine is the fifth and final book in this series. I tend to get very attached to the characters over the course of a series and generally have a hard time letting go and saying goodbye. I will miss everyone but I’m happy with the way it ended.

Grace had her trust destroyed by the people who she should have been able to trust until the end of time. They gave her to a complete stranger and it nearly destroyed her.

We got to watch Grace rise up from the ashes to start her life over again and find love with a great man and see where everyone else ended up.

So glad I took the time to read this and will be looking forward to reading more by this author.

Surviving Grace is book five in the Surviving series by Virginia Wine. The quality that is evident with each story from this author is expected,  but always surprising just how good they end up being. I am never quite prepared for the impact of the storyline or its characters. But it delicious being along for the ride.

Grace survives a horrific attack and losing her memory. She struggles to come to terms with it all, especially when the nightmare she endured starts to be revealed. Everything seems out of her control and she is losing her grip on her wish to get back to some sort of normality. The direction she was heading suddenly takes an unexpected turn and she has a hard time keeping up. This story had so many surprises and twists, which just crept up on me. The way the story was penned was original and really easy to read. It flowed without causing a ripple and ensnared me until the last word. A delightfully suspenseful drama that is well worth taking a chance on. 4 stars.

“I had my words to comfort me, my thoughts on paper. Pouring the black inky darkness onto the white sheets. Releasing them to the universe, a single slip of paper healing my broken past. Messy feelings visibly bared and unprotected for all to see. This was my story.”

 

Surviving Grace is the fifth and final book in the Surviving series by Virginia Wine. This book is written with a lyrical, poetic style that really enhanced this story. The poetry between each chapter also helps to set the tone and mood for the whole book. As this is the fifth and final story in the series, I really recommend reading all the books so you have all the information you need to properly understand/follow and enjoy this book, at the very least you really need to have read book four, first. Surviving Grace is about family, friendship, trauma, betrayal, love, loss, trust, self-realization/self-discovery, and overcoming. There is plenty of drama, emotion, and romance.
I had been waiting for this book to release, so I had quite a lot of expectation- but Ms. Wine didn’t let me down, finishing off the series with a very captivating read.
This is ultimately Grace’s story, and we follow along as she slowly pieces herself back together and tries to move on with her life after the trauma she experienced. Things are not easy, especially with horrible memories haunting her nights and tormenting her days. Things are not easy for her, with lots of obstacles to deal with. So, what happens when the past catches up with her? Read this great story/series to find out.
Ms. Wine has created a complex story, full of interconnected details. The characters are well developed- and the recurring characters from the series make appearances again in this book too.
I was a little sad to finish the series, but Ms. Wine certainly left the best till last, in my eyes!

Thank you, Ms. Wine!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surviving Grace by Virginia Wine is book five of the Surviving Series. This book is a novella and is written in a poetic format. This book should be read by readers 18+ due to the content and language.

Grace is a beautiful, strong woman that experienced a lot of pain and devastation. There is quite a bit of suspense as you wait to see how Grace’s future will play out. I couldn’t put the book down. There is so much emotion in this book you can’t help but feel a sliver of what Grace must have been feeling. She is such a great character. She is so strong and didn’t let herself get beat down even though at times she didn’t think highly of herself.

This was a great book. It was interesting to read it in poetic format. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it when I first started it but once I got use to it, it was really good. I definitely recommend this whole series!

Surviving Grace: Book Five (Surviving Series) by Virginia Wine is a contemporary romantic suspense. This story was creative and a fabulous addition to the Surviving Series. The way the characters from the previous stories were brought together in this book, along with the emotional stance this story takes makes it riveting! The journey that Grace has to embark upon in this story as she attempts to live her life while also surpassing her past were well written. I found the style of this book was a pleasant change of pace. Overall, this series was excellent with each story tying into the theme of the series.

Surviving Grace by Virginia Wine is the fifth book in the Surviving series. This book cannot be read as a stand-alone, it does need to be read in order.
This novella is the last one in the series and what a way to end. I absolutely loved the poetry in the book and the emotional depth that it brought to the whole story. You were instantly immersed in the characters and their story.
Grace is one of those characters you are just drawn to. I wanted to read more about her and I wanted her to find her way.
This has been such a great series overall. I have enjoyed every moment, this book being no exception. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Surviving Grace is the 5th and final installment in the Surviving series by Virginia Wine. This final installment is not a full length novel whereas the first 4 are. Also, whereas the first 4 books can be read as a stand-alone, you need to read the 4th book, Hard As Steel before reading this novella. As this is such a fantastic series, I would recommend reading all 5 books, preferably in order as characters reoccur in subsequent books. If you read them out of order there would be spoilers.
We are first introduced to Grace in Hard As Steel (Steel and Nichole’s story), where she has been the victim of a sadistic abuser. Through therapy and her love of writing, Grace is slowly coming to terms with the years of abuse that she suffered. She is however still very mentally fragile.
We are also introduced to Will in Hard as Steel. He is the vain, cocky, player, immature brother of Nichole. He is exactly the type of man who Grace should avoid, but as circumstances mean that she is living with Nichole and Will, she can hardly avoid him. However, as they spend more and more time together, Grace starts to see a different side of Will that no one has seen before. Deep down, he is a very caring, gentle man who will do anything to help Grace overcome the demons from her past.
I also loved that we got to see a little insight into each of the couples from the previous books. What I didn’t like is that this series has come to an end. This series has had me gripped from the very beginning right through to the end. It is certainly a series that I will revisit and read again.

I’m so sad that this is the final book in this series; I have loved every single book that I have read. This final installment is so beautifully written and I was hanging on every word that I read. I was completely captivated by Grace’s story and after everything she has been through I was totally rooting for her.
Grace and Will absolutely melted my heart and put it back together after everything that happened with Ethan! There really were some great twists in the story that I definitely didn’t see coming but made the story all the more exciting to read.
If you have read any of the books in this series then I don’t think you will be disappointed with Surviving Grace – it was an emotional read that had me on one massive rollercoaster but in my opinion I think this is my favourite from the series!
I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future!

Surviving Grace is the closing chapter or Virginia Wine’s Surviving series! What a journey it has been! She has taken us through ups and downs and with this last book she has given us a present that will haunt us for some time.
Surviving Grace is Grace’s story; it is all about what she has endured, where she is at and what her path forward will be. She has to learn to deal with her emotions, she needs to face and confront her parents, she needs to survive loosing Elijah … It is also the beginning of Grace and Will’s story, the journey that their relationship takes … Grace will not only need to learn to trust, she needs to learn to survive and she will crush it all!
What an amazing series it is, do yourself a favour and start with book one! I promise you will enjoy every single one of them! Cannot wait to see what the writer will surprise us next with!
