What a novel. I'm almost at the end and I'm sad because I don't want it to end. I've become so engrossed with the characters I can almost feel their sorrow. Can't wait for this author to publish more!!!!!!!!!!

Set around a poverty-stricken New Brunswick family, Mercy Among the Children moved me to tears more than one time. Yet it is not anything like the conventionally emotional novel: this piece of work uses real life and real images to evoke empathy in the reader. I found it a wee bit lengthy at times, but I do suspect that may be because I was so impatient to see what the outcome of the Henderson family's trials would be.

My family is getting tired of hearing the patter of my feet at night as I lay awake waiting for them to fall asleep; gliding to the couch with my flashlight and Mercy Among the Children to pick up where I left off. Stark yes but colorful in a grey sort of way. Unforgettable characters built with few words through deeds alone. Very good. Satisfying after some of the mediocrity I have endured.

Absent of the cheeky junk that dominates the shelves, this book depends instead on a strong storyline, a solid (if heavily drawn) cast of characters, and an irresistible family of poverty-stricken misfits. Far from sentimental, Mercy Among the Children still manages to elicit a powerful reaction from everyone I pass it on to. One man cried on the NYC subway!
