Book Review of When Mercy Rains by Kim Vogel Sawyer
I love all of Kim Vogel Sawyer’s historical and contemporary books, so this book was a double treat for me because the prologue takes place twenty years in the past, then chapter one starts in the present.
We see the present through the eyes of Suzanne Zimmerman, the woman who was seventeen and pregnant in the prologue. We also see it through the eyes of Paul Aldrich, her long-lost love, and Suzanne’s daughter, Alexa, and mother, Abigail.
Everyone involved needs to be forgiven and/or forgive someone else, and also accept God’s mercy and show it to others.
Whenever a secret or part of one comes to light, another secret is revealed, culminating in a whopper of a secret near the end. This is a very well-written, well-thought-out book. I would expect no less from this gifted writer—Kim Vogel Sawyer.
