The sheer fright in Lucy’s voice made Rebekah shudder with fear; she tried making sense of what was said as Lucy rambled on in their native tongue. Still, the more Lucy spoke, obviously overcome with terror, the more confused Rebekah became.

Today ends the month-long features taken from ‘The Coming of Grace,’ available on Amazon.com. Some contents of the book are based on factual events. “Nothing happens in a vacuum,” and all things are relative; this adage reminds me of how interwoven life’s experiences can become. The Rebekah Masters story rang true, highlighting those dynamics in its parts and whole.
