Abstract

This novel aims to parallel the life of fourteen-year-old Grace with the lives of several members of a large Protestant church. Grace, along with the other church members, struggles with the sin of sexual temptation in one form or another. As Grace develops into a young woman, she comes to realize her ideology of a good Christian lifestyle does not fit with the reality presented to her. In the end, she and the others come to realize that they are human, and humans struggle with sexuality. Grace Saving is a coming-of-age story with an emphasis on sexuality and religion. Submitted are the first ten chapters of twenty from Grace Saving.
