Waves of Mercy by Lynn Austin
Well, I just don't know where to begin. This is such an amazing story of decisions, forgiveness of oneself and others, and moving forward. It brings to life the age old question: Do I do what is right or what my heart tells me? It is a story of an older woman reliving her story as she writes it down and a young girl and how their lives and decisions are very similar and yet so very different. I really enjoyed the way the book was laid out and the writing involved. It felt as if you were right there with the person and going through all the things they were. Your heart ached for her to make the right decision while you aren't really sure what that is. It is an amazing story. Parts of it are predictable, but its like you know what is going to happen and you cannot wait because it is going to be so amazing. But there are a number of twists and turns involved also. Some total shockers! I highly recommend reading this book. It is NOT a fluff piece, but totally filled with weighty issues and emotions. LOVE IT! Thank you, Lynn Austin, for another great read that has touched my life!
