Grace Space: A Direct Sales Tale by Robin Merrill

Grace Space: A Direct Sales Tale by Robin Merrill is 165 pages of witty, quirky fun!  This quick read follows the life of Darcy, a 24 year old who lives at home with her parents as she struggles to pay off her student loans. When she hears she can make $40 an hour by selling Grace Space merchandise she jumps at the chance with hilarious results.

This quick read gives us a glimpse into the inner workings of an eccentric direct sales company - Grace Space.  Robin makes a clear distinction between the "faith" of grace space and the true gospel experienced at New Life Church.  She also introduces us to several charming, unconventional characters along the way.

I did find myself uncomfortable in places - surely the author realizes not all direct sales companies operate this way. 

Lastly, I wished the ending had not been quite so abrupt - a slower build up to the end - or more details would have been appreciated. I would love to read what happens to Luke and Darcy after this snippet of their lives.

Grace Space is a great read for a winter's day...or a rainy spring day....or any time you want something "fun and light" to read. It provided a pleasurable afternoon.
