Mercy is a sweet, southern character from rural Bittersweet, Alabama. She moves to the city, lives in a boarding house, falls in love with her work at the local news paper "The Banner." Into her lap falls "the book" and a poor soul from her past. This book allows her to see into the lives of people. Their past, present, future. What's the connection? Life will never be the same...but isn't that the point?
Truth? I was a little disappointed with this book. Okay, a lot. It's sweet and light hearted. It's an easy enough read. Sometimes that's what us readers really need, right? Nothing too heavy, just something light and sweet. The problem was that this was a little too light. As in, after 100 pages I still wasn't "in" to the story. I wanted to be "in" to the story. I had really looked forward to getting this book. I've heard really great things about River Jordan as a Christian Author. But...it just wasn't working out. I think I'll try one of her other books because I just don't want to give up that easily.
