#BookReview: Cherished Mercy by Tracie Peterson

14 Nov

Cherished Mercy is a compelling tale! Peterson drew me in with her wonderful storytelling, and my emotions were stirred by the dramatic story that unfolded. A frontier adventure brimming with love, loss, faith, and forgiveness, this poignant story is one I very much enjoyed.

Although I have not read the first book in this series, I have read Book 2, Beloved Hope, and was eager to continue the storyline in Cherished Mercy. I do hope to read Book 1, Treasured Grace, as I would like to learn more about the characters and the beginning of their journeys.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

 

About the book:

Mercy Flanagan survived the Whitman Massacre as a child, and now her heart’s cry is for peace between the native peoples and the white settlers inhabiting Oregon Territory. Unfortunately, most of the settlers would rather the tribes were removed from the land completely, one way or the other, and tensions are rising. Mercy has grown tired of Oregon City and feels that she has a larger purpose in life, so when she learns that family friend Eletta Browning is pregnant, she travels south to the Rogue River Valley to help.

At the Rogue River Mission, Mercy meets Eletta’s brother-in-law, Adam, who has suffered a broken engagement. Mercy finds him attractive, but Adam seems determined to focus on ministering to the local tribes and keeps Mercy at arm’s length.

When tragedy strikes and tensions in the territory reach the boiling point, Mercy is pushed to the limit of her strength. She and Adam must rely on their firm faith in God in order to make it out alive.
