July 31, 2019 - 10:26 AM

Iola native Heidi Starks Crane is the author of “Amazing Grace,” a heart-warming story of her experience of adopting a cat from an animal shelter.

The cat, Gracie, comes into Crane’s life just as she becomes an empty-nester, a low point in her life, according to a press release. Crane writes Gracie’s presence in her life is nothing short of a miracle.

The book is available on as well as major retailers.
