When Mercy Rains Book Review

Well, it looks like Kim Vogel Sawyer has written once again a really awesome new book called When Mercy Rains!

She left, heavily weighted with secrets.
But God reveals all things, in His timing.
And He redeems them.
Suzanne Zimmerman was only seventeen and pregnant when her shamed mother quietly sent her away from their Old Order Mennonite community in Kansas. With her old home, family, and first love firmly behind her, Suzanne moved to Indiana, became a nurse, and raised a daughter, Alexa, on her own.

Now, nearly twenty years later, an unexpected letter arrives from Kansas. Her brother asks her to bring her nursing abilities home and care for their ailing mother. His request requires that Suzanne face a family that may not have forgiven her and a strict faith community. It also means seeing Paul Aldrich, her first love.   

Paul, widowed with an eight-year-old son, is relieved to see Suzanne again, giving him the chance to beg her forgiveness for his past indiscretion. But when he meets Alexa, his guilt flickers in the glare of Suzanne’s prolonged secret—one that changes everything.

Suzanne had let go of any expectation for forgiveness long ago. Does she dare hope in mercy–and how will her uncovered past affect the people she loves the most?
My Review:

You are really going to love reading this book! It has everything in it starting with a romance gone wrong 20 something years ago and one of the lovers left town in shame, ever to return. It's a shame that people don't sit down and talk things out before they make such life altering changes in their life.

Suzanne has kept a secret for quite awhile and when Paul sees Alexa, he wonders if she is his daughter and confronts Suzanne about it. It's not what Paul or her mother thought at all and the shock will definitely be confusing!

Suzanne returns back to Indiana, but for how long and will she come back to her hometown in Kansas and rekindle the love she felt for Paul? She will definitely have to come back some time as Alexa had decided to stay and help her grandmother.

Happy Reading!
