'The Mercy' by Beverly Lewis is the third book in The Rose Trilogy. You can read it alone and understand it and even enjoy it, but after reading 'The Mercy' I wish I had read the first twol books in the trilogy first.
'The Mercy' is a book about two Amish sisters looking to find their way in a world of family and religious customs and a secular world that does not understand or easily accept those customs. The choices that each of the sisters makes could draw them closer together or push them apart.
Will Rose find true love or is it too late for her? Will she be able to live with the consequences of her choices? Did she have anything to do with 'The Silencing' of a family friend and neighbor? Rose's sister, Hen, found true love - but will she have to choose between her family & religion and her one true love? You have to read the book to find out.
This is a sweet book that I thoroughly enjoyed. This is an easy read, not complicated - great book to lift the spirits. I carried the book with me wherever I went.
I received this book for free from Bethany House for this review, but the review and opinions are my own.
