Product Description

Product Description

Grace in Africa is a sweeping historical three-part saga of slavery and freedom that takes the reader from an island off the west coast of Africa to Southern plantations and finally on to Canada.

All her life, Grace Winslow, the daughter of a mixed marriage between an English sea captain and an African princess, has been forbidden to ever approach Zulina, the fortress that juts out into the sea off the African coast. In book 1, when she escapes the family compound to avoid an odious betrothal, she is swept up in a slave revolt.

As the truth about Zulina unfolds, Grace begins to grasp the brutality and ferocity of the family business—the capture and trade of slaves. Held for ransom, viciously maimed by a runaway slave, and threatened with death, Grace is finally jerked into reality when her parents leave her to die rather than negotiate with the slaves. Grace sympathizes with the plight of the captives, and she is genuinely moved by the African Cabeto’s passion, determination, and willingness to sacrifice anything, including his own life, for his people’s freedom.

With much of the island in flames, and the slaves freed, Grace is abandoned by her parents. Where shall she go? Her old nursemaid Mama Muco, opens a missionary Bible that she has managed to save and points to Isaiah 61: “The Lord has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound…to give unto them garlands of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning.”

It’s a new beginning for Grace.

More About the Author

I am a writer and speaker who loves learning about the world. And what better way to learn than to travel? My dear husband puts up with me... even accompanies me on occasion.

Of course, the more I learn, the more I want to write. And then I want to jump up on my soapbox and share all my insights and ideas.

For years I've been known as a writer of non-fiction. That's still true, but I am also having the time of my life writing fiction. Sometimes there is no better way to share a passion than through a rollicking good story! I just finished writing one historical trilogy, "Grace in Africa," (Book 1: The Call of Zulina, Book 2: The Voyage of Promise, Book 3: The Triumph of Grace). Now I'm working on the next series, "Blessings in India." What fun! It's like eating my chocolate dessert when I haven't finished my broccoli!

Come, explore the world with me. Together we'll strive to make it a better place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and inspiring 29 Jan 2011
By MaryMK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Triumph of Grace is the third book in Kay Strom's trilogy, Grace in Africa. The books take place in the late eighteenth century, with slavery as the driving engine of the plot. They take Grace, the central character, from her childhood in Africa, the offspring of a white slave trader and an African princess, to her fall into slavery, and her transport to England and eventually to America.

Book two described in gruesome detail the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade, with the hopelessness and agony of its victims, crammed in the fetid, stinking holds of the slave ships. Book three shifts to the plight of the victims of plantation slavery, with its brutality, degradation and humiliation.

Grace herself is a wonderfully sympathetic and beautifully drawn character. She comes fully alive on the page. Her travails and eventual triumph make a powerful story. For a reader who enjoys history, the allusions to real people and events make it vivid and true to life. The author creatively presents the culture and history of the era. (The time between the American and French revolutions.)

By focusing on one indomitable young woman, the story tells us not only a great deal about the period, but also about human nature. The contrast between good and evil, kindness and cruelty, is sharply drawn. But the story shows that the line between them is not always crisp and clear, and that not every person is always one or the other.

The Triumph of Grace is at once a morality play, an adventure tale, and a love story. It will have a very broad appeal. Few people will read the ending without a catch in their throat and tears in their eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to read the first two books to enjoy this 27 Mar 2011
By The Tatting Flutist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Only now do I realize that this is the third book of a trilogy. Often, by the third book, if you haven't read the first two, you can't follow the thread very well. I recommend the book, even if you haven't read the others. A very good read, which I recommend, even if you aren't a Christian, but enjoy historical fiction. From my visits to my family in the South, and the lingering racist attitudes I found there, the white people who are bigoted are well and accurately portrayed. Also, the Christian themes don't seem as forced as in some other Christian fiction I've read.

I am extremely pleased that this author does not shy away from the fact that Africans kidnapped fellow Africans to sell as slaves. She faces it head-on, without excusing the actions of the white people. All were equally guilty in the perpetration of this atrocity.

At first, I was a little unsure, and almost put it down. However, I rarely decide to not finish a book once started, so I continued.

Although the story is different, it reminded me of Uncle Tom's Cabin, which I recently read. Again, the fact that a human being can be property, is appalling. Looking at things from the slaves' point of view is thought-provoking for a Boston Irish girl raised in an affluent, predominantly white neighborhood in California. It was a given that I would go to school, learn to read, and make my own decisions. I am reminded of how blessed I have been all my life when I read stories like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring 11 Aug 2011
By SaltKeeper - Published on Amazon.com

The beginning of this book was a bit confusing because of the many characters and locations, however as I read the book, I began to appreciate Grace's story. My heart was inspired by the faith and tenacity of this young woman and those she loved. I can't even begin to imagine what life was like for those dear people as they pursued freedom. Even though this book is a novel it portrays real events and real emotions. Everyone should read this book and "walk in their shoes".

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart-breaking, in a way 18 Sep 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful story of many twists and it was extremely interesting. Kay Marshall Strom is excellent in making characters come alive, and this book was obviously written by a well-researched author. I enjoyed the story through and through. It was touching, it was inspiring, it was exciting, and a worthy read. Throughout the story, Grace showed strength always, promising herself the one day- one day, she would see her husband again. Ms.Strom weaves together a delightful and thrilling tale, and I definitely will be reading more of this author. This book makes all five stars.

Five stars for:
Grammar
Editing
Well-developed Characters
Overall Exciting Story

Lots of characters to get to know but Kay Marchal Strom does an excellent job in developing all of them. This third book of the trilogy was hard to put down. A real page-turner.
