Powerful plot and a Phenomenal read
Put your feet up and grab the popcorn, because this is truly a movie-worthy script of exceptional caliber! Seizing your attention immediately in the first few pages with thrilling suspense and drama, following with a constant stream of intrigue, adventure, and danger until its climactic conclusion... ‘Finding Mercy’ is sure to leave you breathless and applauding this masterful story-telling at the finale!
Tenacious but weary, Mercy is still suffering with amnesia and longs to find the way home to her family and her lost memories, but first she must evade the relentless bounty hunters in pursuit. Having abandoned her escorts Captain Elijah Hale and the 14 yr. old Negro boy Isaac to save them also from harm, Mercy eventually discovers a clue that leads to a plantation in the South. Will Elijah and Isaac locate her or will Mercy continue to find herself at the mercy of the ruthless? Can it be possible for her to ever find home and belonging?
The Civil War has not long come to an end, but the recollections and wounds are yet to depart from most. With deep and grievous scars on both sides, Mercy finds herself facing hostilities from both the North for having fought as a Confederate soldier, and with some in the South for her sympathies to the plights of the Negroes. And the closer she draws towards finding answers to the mysteries surrounding her, the danger increases significantly. Can Elijah, who is determined to protect Mercy at any cost, keep her safe as well as Isaac and himself?
‘Finding Mercy’ was the perfect sequel to ‘Traces of Mercy’ in maintaining a fresh and original plot with eye-popping surprises and memorable characters. These outstanding stories unfold to be an epic not-to-be missed account of a woman that served in the war as a man and subsequently lost her memory, but ultimately found herself. ‘Finding Mercy’ reminds us all to stand up for justice for others, even when it may cause hardship for oneself. It’s about moving forward and leaving the past behind. And it’s about treating each other with the respect we ourselves enjoy. Highly recommended!!
