When Mercy Rains - A Book Review

If you have read very many of my book reviews you know that Kim Vogel Sawyer is one of my favorite authors.  She has a way of writing beautiful stories that are entertaining and pull at your heart strings.  I love the way she intertwines a strong faith in her writings and her newest novel, When Mercy Rains follows the pattern of excellency.

There was a sadness to this story for me.  A family broken.  A sin that effected so many people, and heartache that seems impossible to heal.

The story begins with a young girl, Suzanne being sent away by her mother.  Suzanne and Paul were in love and made a mistake and now Suzanne is pregnant.  The only person she tells is her mother and her mother is determined to keep it a secret.  So she sends her daughter away.  She is to have her baby in a different community, give the baby away and then she can return home.  Jump forward about 20 years...Suzanne has been away from home for all these years and now she has received a request from her brother to come home and care for her mother who's health is failing.  She decides she must return to the family that she has not seen for all these years.  Her daughter Alexa is excited to see the family she has never known, but are they going to be excited to see Alexa?  Surprised is more like it!

I won't tell anymore of the story than that because I don't want to give anything away.  You can tell by the title of the story that God is going to do a great work in this family and His mercy is going to rain down.  This is the first book in Trilogy and I can't wait to see what is in store for the Zimmerman family.
