Traces of Mercy

Authors: Michael Landon Jr and Cindy Kelley
Publisher: David C. Cook
October 2013
ISBN: 978-0781408691
Genre: Historical

Dangerous Secrets, A Forgotten Past.

From Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley, authors of The Silent Gift and creators of the hit television film Love Comes Softly, comes an exciting historical romance set in post-Civil War, and filled with suspense and faith-building values.

At the war’s end, a young woman suffers an accident that leaves her unconscious and alone. Waking with amnesia, she takes the name Mercy and wants more than anything to find out the truth of her past. But then a handsome stranger arrives, who may hold the key to everything she has forgotten. What he knows could devastate her future, and even end her life.

Written by two proven storytellers, TRACES OF MERCY is perfect for anyone who loves historical fiction, prairie-based tales, or just a good romance.

TRACES OF MERCY is book one in the Mercy Medallion series. It starts out with a bang and doesn’t let up. My life was completely enthralled with Mercy and her unknown identity and then when someone from her past—a Yankee captain—catches up with her.  

The only thing I don’t like about it is that it ends abruptly with a clear cliff-hanger and is unfinished. Readers will have read book two to find out what happened. If you don’t like unfinished books, or serial books, you’ll need to wait until all three books in this series are released to read. If you don’t mind waiting six months to a year for the rest of the story, then go ahead and read it now.

Mr. Landon and Ms. Kelley are talented authors and completely drew me in. I’d give it a pure five stars if I wasn’t left hanging. But… as it is it’s still 4.5 (and rounded up).  $14.99. 352 pages.
