“The Edge of Grace” by Christa Allan

A powerful story of the true meaning of grace and love!

An early morning call shatters Caryn Becker’s world.  Unable to cope with her brother’s news that he is gay, Caryn rejects him and disappears into her own turbulent life as a young widow and single mom. But when David is attacked and nearly killed, Caryn is forced to make hard choices about family, faith, and her own future; choices that take her to the very edge of grace.


“A beautifully written book, The Edge of Grace is a powerful story of the true meaning of grace and love. A brilliant mix of dark and light, laughs and gravity, The Edge of Grace is a must read.” —Jenny B. Jones, award-winning author of Save the Date and A Charmed Life series

“Christa Allan takes her character on an emotional journey to a new understanding of acceptance and the joy that comes from forgiveness.” —Sandra Robbins, author


I’m an author of not-your-usual-Christian fiction. In addition, I’m a freelance writer, teacher, wife, and mother living in Louisiana.

EDGE OF GRACE,my second novel, releases in August. It’s available now on pre-order through Amazon. My debut novel, WALKING ON BROKEN GLASS, released in 2010 from Abingdon Press. I’ve also contributed to Chicken Soup for the Coffee Lover’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Recovering and Divorced Soul, The Ultimate Teacher, and Cup of Comfort for Special Needs.

For over twenty years I’ve been teaching high school English in Louisiana, and received my National Board Certification in 2007. My five children, now grown, live in Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. I’m also Grammy to two precious grandgirls. My husband and I enjoy playing golf, cooking, and traveling. We’re also becoming expert at dodging hurricanes!

My novels focus on God’s “unscripted grace,” those times in our lives where God appears when we least expect. And, those times when our lives don’t follow the script we expect, grace finds us.
