When Dr. Sam Gray is sent to Africa as a volunteer physician, he is counting down the days until he can go home again. During a trip to the local school to take care of the students, he runs into the Cloverdales, a missionary family determined to win every soul in Africa to Christ. While fun-loving, brightly dressed Esther Cloverdale befriends him from the start, her more serious twin sister, Grace, is not as easily won over by the agnostic doctor. And Dr. Sam is convinced all their father, Thomas, wants to do is convert him.
Try as he might, Dr. Sam can’t seem to resist the family and finds himself being pulled into their midst again and again. As he battles his own beliefs, Dr. Sam begins to find that maybe he’s in need of a Physician as well, but Who will ever be able to heal his hardened heart?
Grace Cloverdale has only one purpose—to serve God. She has determined she will only fall in love with a man who is strong in his faith. So when she meets Dr. Sam Gray, she has no interest in pursuing anything other than a professional relationship. But the more time she spends with him, the harder she finds it to keep her resolve. Will she give in to temptation and fall under the charming doctor’s spell? Or will she remain faithful to her God?
Amazing Grace answers the questions so many people have—what’s so amazing about grace?


Born in Bellflower, California, Malanya M. Donaho was six months old when her parents relocated to Arkansas. She was raised in a Christian home, accepted Jesus as her Savior when she was five, and was thirteen when writing found her. Upon graduating high school, Malanya entered the workforce, where at age twenty-one, she met the man God had created for her. A year later, they were married and now have two children: a daughter in Heaven and a son who has surrendered to be an evangelist. In addition to writing, Malanya loves singing, song writing, playing piano, playing video games, reading, storm spotting, and furthering her knowledge of American Sign Language. Malanya and her family attend Grace Baptist Church of Conway and live in Central Arkansas with her mother-in-law, their six dogs, three cats, and various goats and chickens, the number of which fluctuates on a regular basis.
