    1 thought on “Grace Triumphant: A Tale of the Slave Trade”

    1. Grace Triumphant, like From the Dark to the Dawn, is my heart's cry for believers. The Transatlantic Slave Trade has always fascinated me, particularly the work of John Newton and William Wilberforce. Grace changed their livesd they made a difference for Christ. Such is my goal for this book. May this tale inspire you to live by faith and fulfill our duty as believers to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to a hurting world. To God be the glory!

    2. Age Appropriate For: 12 and up for mild violence and mentions of immoral behavior.Best for Ages: 12 and upThere are two things I can always count on with Alicia Willis’ books. 1.) I won’t want to stop reading them; and 2.) The ending will satisfy me. However, I have to admit, sometimes the sheer size of her books makes me pause. After all, it is hard when you don’t want to put a book down but know that it will take you several days to get through it. That is the reason it took me so long t [...]

    3. Don't get me wrong, this was a great book. (Although definitely not as good as From the Dark to the Dawn.) There were just a few technical things that made me bring the rating down. Mainly the POV shifts though. They continually drew me out of the story, and Elizabeth's and Russel's POVS don't even connect until the very end of the book, making it feel very disjointed. However the storyline was still phenomenal and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes historical fiction! :D

    4. This is one powerful book. It totally immersed me in the lives of Russell, the young slave ship captain who denies God; Jack, the Christian cabin boy abducted from a life on the London streets and impressed into service; and Elizabeth, the young Christian abolitionist who must marry a heartless man of the world. Scenes alternate between their points of view. I pondered and learned and worried along with them. Their fates kept me guessing to the very end! How God shone in their lives is something [...]

    5. A novel centered around the 18th-century slave trade may not sound like a cheerful read, but Grace Triumphant delivers a solid message of hope intertwined with an exciting historical tale.Russell Lawrence captains a slave trader that makes the triangular voyage carrying goods from England to trade for slaves on Africa's Slave Coast, which are then traded for sugar from the tropics to sweeten English tea. The master of life and death aboard his ship, he leads his rough crew with a firm but fair h [...]

    6. This was such a good book to have as my "last-of-2015" read! I am somewhat familiar with the story of John Newton and William Wilberforce, and I was thrilled to read a fictional book in that setting and era. "Grace Triumphant" is definitely action-packed, though-provoking, and Christian.I could not identify with Elizabeth, but I know that many girls will with the struggle she faced with desiring to be loved and allowing herself to continue a relationship that she knew was not right. I applauded [...]

    7. Alicia A. Willis has woven another fantastic tale of adventure, peril, and the grace of God. This book was very well written and by the first paragraph I was hooked into this story of a grace triumphant! I received this book as a Christmas present and was definitely not disappointed.What I Liked: As I said above, this story was very well written and researched. I learned a lot more about John Newton by this historical work of fiction and desire to study him a bit more in the future. What a wonde [...]

    8. Wow. That was really good. I was hooked from the first page on. From the slow build of characters, to the realistic circumstances, to the masterful way delicate subjects were handled, this book was amazing. There were a ton of plot lines in this book, but I never once got confused because of how well the author kept them all up. I loved the characters, and the fact that this was not a romance book. Non romance books are so rare in this world that I just have to love them special. I wouldn't reco [...]

    9. This is a story of three lives, and how God manifested His grace in each of them.Russell Lawrence: the captain of a slave trader and a self-proclaimed atheist who resists the God that his mother believed in and taught him about.Jack Dunbar: cabin boy to Russell Lawrence and a believer who struggles to understand why God would place him in a position where he is forced to participate in activities that go against his conscience.Elizabeth Gray: a young lady of high society, engaged to the most eli [...]

    10. I downloaded Grace Triumphant on a whim, mostly because the cover was just so beautiful and I love Alicia’s writing. While not as gripping as From the Dark to the Dawn, this book was far from terrible. Plot/Storyline: 2/5I felt like the plot was one thing that lacked a bit in this book. There are two main characters (well three, actually, but two main-main characters). Those two, while getting equal amounts of attention and time in the book, don’t meet each other until the very, very end of [...]

    11. I began reading Alicia's manuscript for Grace Triumphant feeling great disappointment that it was not a civil war era book about slavery like I had been expecting. I usually find it hard to relate to and understand books that are set in a pre-Civil War era. However, my disappointment was quickly replaced with absolute enthrallment in the exciting storyline. I soon found myself unable to put the manuscript down! The message is so stirring, the book is so well-researched, the characters are develo [...]

    12. Grace Triumphant is a fast-paced story of God's grace. While revealing the matchless grace of God, Miss Willis very tactfully portrays the evils of the slave trade in particular and the historical era in general. The historical depth is a remarkable example of the author's vast historical research. Every page reveals meticulous effort to maintain historical accuracy while still conveying the poor state of society at the time. Morality itself is not sufficient for a fulfilled and peaceful life. R [...]

    13. Grace Triumphant brings the days of William Wilberforce and John Newton to life. Russell, captain of a slaver, has determined that there is no God. Jack, his cabin boy, believes there is a God—and furthermore believes he will one day be able to get home to help his needy family. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Gray—a young lady in London—is resolved to help the abolition movement as much as possible. Her controlling fiancé, however, hates even the word abolition—can she ever find true happiness an [...]

    14. Woohoo! I'm finally finished this LONG, amazing, frustrating, tremendous book!!! Throughout the 2 main characters' intertwining stories, I couldn't understand why the author didn't just write 2 different (shorter) books (or a sequel) But they finally merged in the very last chapter. The details of the slave trade were cruel & grotesque (but that was reality), & there were frightening scenes with Cedrick that I didn't care for, but all in all, it was a wonderful book. Great ending! I crie [...]

    15. Grace TriumphantGrace Triumphant is a must read for Christians, and every reader who loves a great story! The book is filled with stories that will keep you turning the pages wanting to know what's coming next. There's three main character's that dominate the story, and many more that all have a special place. Alicia A. Willis has written five other books, but this is the best. I was unable to stop reading and finished it to soon. This is one of the best books I have had the privilege of reading [...]

    16. Woowwww!!! I thoughtwas amazing, but this was even better (if that's possible)! I can't wait until I read it againe characters, story-line/setting, and Christian theme was all fabulous!While there were many similarities between this book and the above mentioned book there was enough differences in setting and characters that I didn't feel annoyed. That and how little Elizabeth's father was in the book were the only things I'd call "cons", but that does not sway anything with what I think about t [...]

    17. It’s hard to know where to start with such a wonderful book! From the first page, I felt drawn into the darkness and the light of 18th century England. The characters are all incredibly real. From the start, you feel a part of their lives, and it is incredibly hard to say goodbye at the final chapter. In fact, I’m not sure I can ever truly say goodbye, as this is a book I will read again and again! Captain Russell Lawrence reminds me of Saul, a just man stubbornly holding out against God’s [...]

    18. "Grace Triumphant: A Tale of the Slave Trade" is a book I would wholeheartedly recommend. Ever since I first heard of it months ago, I have been eagerly anticipating its arrival. I was not disappointed. It gave me a wonderful glimpse into the "behind the scenes", so to speak, of the slave trade and those who participated in it, as well as the abolition movement. The story is filled with cliffhangers and suspense. Just when I thought I was through one suspenseful scene, another would be on its wa [...]

    19. Love this book!!!This is a great book! Definitely one you should read. It is one of my favorite books now. Thank you!!!

    20. Having read the story of William Wilberforce and John Newton, and learned about the effect both had upon the abolition of the slave trade, I assumed this story would be similar to other historical fiction works set in a certain time period and based around a fictional character taking part in a certain event in history. However, my expectations were greatly exceeded. Alicia Willis, in writing Grace Triumphant, has creatively and engagingly written a fast-paced, exhilarating story which clearly a [...]

    21. This started off a little slow but then I couldn't put it down! Wonderful story with several plot twists that keep you guessing. A very clear gospel presentation as well.
