Their story reaches forward through time to Bette Michaels, a genealogist, struggling with grief after the sudden death of her husband. Although generations apart, as Bette unravels Mercy's story, she learns that a life can be rebuilt - even after everything is lost.

Through Mercy, Bette learns that sometimes the only way to find happiness is to steal it.

    Impossible to put down!

    Mercy leads us on an adventure that is thrilling. The history adds reality, and, heart throb, Trent Michaels will make your heart skip a beat. I would recommend it to my grandma and my best girl friend.

    Terrible

    Boring. Made no sense, story rambled, switching from past to present with no reason given for the switch. Very jarring. The past makes no sense, no real plot, no real explanatiin given for anything. These recipes at the beginning of every chapter are absolutely ludicrous. No reason at all for them. Do not recommend at all. I quit reading at page 168. Just could not bear any more of this boring nonsense.

    Grabbed me on page 1

    Don't have to read 50 pages to start the plot with this one. Enjoyed this easy read and read the sequel right after.

    Chopped End

    It would have been an excelent book, but the end was rushed and not fulfilling. It's also a little confusing.
