In The Shadows of His Grace
By: Dolores WM Fleming
About the Book
In The Shadows of His Grace is Dolores Fleming’s compelling, faith-driven life story.
From her earliest years working alongside her siblings and parents as migrant farm workers in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, and attending a segregated school in Trenton, New Jersey, to her early adult years that were shaped by both the pain of infidelity, domestic violence, and divorce and the joy of giving birth, raising her sons, and achieving her personal goals, Fleming’s story is one of unwavering faith in the Lord.
She details her struggles as a single mother, the fulfillment of her hard-won professional and educational accomplishments, and even the immeasurable pain of losing her son—all while declaring her love of the Lord and her commitment to church, describing it as the “foundation and the network for all things in family life.”
Dolores’ memoir is about her love and faith in God, the joy of loving, giving, and serving others, and about staying focused and persevering, even in the face of grief and sorrow.
