Review of "Traces of Mercy"
by Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley
At the war’s end, a young woman suffers an accident that leaves her unconscious and alone. Waking with amnesia, she takes the name Mercy and wants more than anything to find out the truth of her past. But then a handsome stranger arrives, who may hold the key to everything she has forgotten. What he knows could devastate her future, and even end her life. Written by two proven storytellers, Traces of Mercy is perfect for anyone who loves historical fiction, prairie-based tales, or just a good romance.
MY REVIEW: I will be honest. I was reluctant to read this book as I feared it would be predictable and boring. It is most definitely not predictable and definitely not boring. I admired Mercy's strength and gumption. She is certainly a spunky young woman. My heart went out to her and I found myself finishing this book in tears. I was deeply moved by the love demonstrated by several different characters and a myriad of relationships. This would definitely make a wonderful movie. This is a 5 PLUS star book!! I am delighted to be able to recommend it to readers.
I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
