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!

Surviving Grace by Virginia Wine
Five Stars

Surviving Grace is the fifth and final book in the Surviving series by Virginia Wine. This novella brings the whole series together and should not be read as a standalone. This book like the rest of the series is well written and grabbed my attention on the very first page. With this installment we learn about Grace and the things that happened to her in the past. This book is full of suspense, heartache, and heartwarming romance. I love how Ms. Wine brought back all of the characters from previous books. I highly recommend this book, series and author. I’m looking forward to reading more from Ms. Wine.

“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.

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!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surviving Grace is an amazing story that takes tragedy and learning from it. Virginia Wine has become an author that I enjoy reading. Ms. Wine really takes her characters to a new level. She involves her past characters that were in earlier books and gives us a snapshot of what has been going on in their lives with in the later stories. This story is about Grace. This story tugs at my heart strings. The emotions run high. I suggest a box of Kleenex and plan out some time so you can finish the story in one sitting. Grace has a brutal past that she is learning about. She understands that she needs to deal with the past before she can move forward. Will Grace allow time to heal her soul or will she be overcome by the darkness she is learning about?

5 Star
Surviving Grace: Book 5 (Surviving Series ) by Virginia Wine is the fifth book in the Surviving Series and a series I will definitely be rereading later on. I was instantly hooked from the beginning and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I was dying to know what happens next. I’ve truly enjoyed this series and recommend if you haven’t read the first four books to go read them as well. This story had me not only turning the pages fast but I also felt like I was on a emotional rollercoaster ride at times. I love how the characters are very well developed. The detail this author uses is amazing. Grace has a dark past that leaves her feeling broken at times but she’s pretty strong and doesn’t let that get her down. Find out what is in store for her future. What a great ending to this series. I can’t recommend not only this entire series, but this author, enough. She’s quickly climbed to the top of my list. Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.
