Sixteen-year-old Scottlyn Rich survives a horrifying experience only to discover she's pregnant. When she refuses to abort her unborn baby, her father kicks her out. She has no idea how to handle the obstacles ahead, she only knows that giving her daughter, Mercie, a chance to live is the most important thing she'll ever do.

Widowed schoolteacher Diana Kensington lost everything she held dear the day her husband's plane fell out of the sky. Four hundred and thirty-nine days later she still has no answer to her daily prayer. "What now, God?"

When Scottlyn shows up in Diana's class, Diana sees an open door. Can trust be built between these two lost women? Can they work together to fill the void in each other's lives, for Mercie's sake?

What a wonderful story! I've never written a review before and I've read thousands of great stories but I felt compelled to write a comment this time. Not only did it do my heart good but it gave me a break from my own pain living with a chronic incurable disease. This is the only story I feel compelled to read to my 13 year old & 9 yr old. We attend church weekly & they have religious class every Sunday. I'm a former teacher and my children still like when I read to them when I'm not too tired. I've just gotten out of the hospital after 7 days and this story gave me peace and renewed perspective. I will recommend this book to many more!!

I really enjoyed For Mercie's Sake. I loved Scottlyn and thought she was such a strong young woman. No matter what, she stuck to what she believed in. A wonderful lesson of not judging others and trust in God's love.  Great and quick read. 5 stars.

Such a sweet story of God's love and mercy shown to a woman suffering grief and to a young lady who has been abandoned.

What a delightful Christian fiction novella! Although the story is based on a teenage pregnancy as a result of a rape no awful details are discussed. The story also deals with one women's grief over losing a loved one and finding her way out of her grief to help the teenager, Scottlyn. It was a quick pace novella and once I started I didn't want to put it down.  I had to kept reading to see what was going to happen.  I especially liked a quote the author used in the book as I too have experienced a similar situation and so it really resonated with me. "Hebrews 13:2 says, "Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for there by some have entertained angels unawares.'" I enjoyed the author's style of writing and will certainly look forward to reading more by this author. (Although I quoted one scripture reference (KJV) this is not heavy Christian fiction.)

Read this in a coffee shop one night and really enjoyed it! I wish it had've been a full size novel!

Sometimes the best healing comes when we step out and help someone else....   I was absolutely delighted with this short story! As a widow myself, I could identify with Diana’s feelings…the apathy, the uncertainty and the doubt that what she felt about helping Scottlyn was actually the voice of God urging her out of her current emotional state.  Scottlyn’s faith and dreams expressed on her wish wall were perfect examples of “writing the vision” as the Bible encourages us to do. Overall, this story is a wonderful example of God’s grace and provision!

62 pages, but only 50 are story. The rest are advertisments for other books. Predictable. Christian and pretty preachy. CLIFFHANGER! Readers must pay for the rest of the book. Ages 15 and up. Deals with an abusive father, rape and subsequent pregnency of a 16 year old. AD

While I enjoyed this book, it ended much too quickly. There is a lot more to this story than where it stopped. I would have given this too short story more stars, but held back because of its shortness. If you are looking for a short, but good read this story is for you! esk 3/2016

She's a very good author. I have only read 2 of her books so far, but plan to read more. She takes very reluctant people & with God's help creates help for young people who need it. On the journey they both strengthen their faith in our savior.

This short novella is worth the read. A 16 year old unwed mother and a widow both find healing as their paths meet and merge. Wish it were longer... guess I'll have to get the sequel!

Ordinary Christian women doing extraordinary things to follow God's wishes. Can't wait for a sequel! I think I have found a new favorite author to read.

For Mercie's Sake by Sharon Srock Mercie Series Book One Scottlyn Rich finds herself in a life-changing situation. Her dream of her future is shattered when she is raped and becomes pregnant. It further changes when she chooses to keep her unborn child...and is kicked out of her home. All seems hopeless to the young girl. But her love for her unborn daughter is stronger than anything life throws at her. Diana Kensington has been in mourning for over a year now. Everything is just a daily strain on her. Forcing herself to rise each morning and go through the day. Repeating it once again the next day. Until a new student comes to her class. The God she has set aside is speaking to her. Will Diana listen and move forward or stay bundled in herself? Definitely a tissue-handy-book. Even through the tears I enjoyed it so much. Isn't it like real life to get so caught up in ourselves and our own needs to miss those hurting right in front of us? I'm looking forward to the next book in this series to see where life will be taking Diana and Scottlyn.
