This is my first book by Kathy Harris I really enjoyed it. It kept me wanting to read and not put it down. Great Characters. Josh and his wife Bethany are faced with some major decisions they need to make. Can they make these decisions based on being Christians?
Not knowing if Bethany will make it through the decision they make. The decision they make is based on faith. Only god's mercy and their faith can get them through this trial in their life. I love Christian fiction Kathy did a wonderful job with this story. Looking forward to her next book.
The Road to Mercy is an excellent book. Josh Harrison, a Christian singer, is on the road most of the time. Bethany, his wife, has a life threatening health issue along with being pregnant. Even though an abortion was recommended, Bethany decides she wants to maintain the pregnany. She also has a secret she is keeping from her husband. Trust and mercy is stressed throughout the book. Kathy Harris has done an excellent job with this being her first book. I will continue to follow anything she writes.
I recieved this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are very true to life and you come away from this book feeling like you know these people. This book handled the difficult subject of abortion with tact and grace, showing God's love throughout. The faith of the characters in the book are very inspiring to me. If you enjoy Christian fiction, you will love this book.

The Road To Mercy is a tale that is relevant in our day and age. It first starts out with a plane crash some years before in the prologue and then we are dropped into the lives of Josh and Beth Harrison's lives in the present day. Josh is an up and coming singer, songwriter in the Christian music business and currently on tour when Beth is rushed to the hospital. We find out that Beth has a very serious conditon, one of her arteries is partially dissected. Beth is in a great amount of pain and her life is in danger. On top of that they find out that she is pregnant with their first child. The doctor, Dr. Ben Abrams, suggests an abortion as his first concern is Beth. Beth is adamant that that will not happen and Josh stands by her side. There were so many areas in this story that I thought Kathy Harris described well. The pain from Beth's affliction and her body's dependancy on the pain killers, Josh's tour on the road and the dealings with his band mates, to the next door neighbor and the paitence she had in becoming Beth's caregiver when Josh could not be there. I felt for Beth and became frustrated with Josh. However, I did understand how Josh would feel then I would become frustrated with Beth. All in all this was a page turner and had so much more going on than I have even mentioned. I really liked how the author really showed us the lie that so many women are fed today and how this lie really does affect them for the rest of their lives. I also liked that in this story everything happened for a reason even if it seemed very tragic in the beginning. I recieved this book from The Book Club Network Inc. and the opionions are my own.
Aspiring contemporary Christian singer, Josh Harrison, has a career on the rise and a happy life with his beautiful wife, Beth. Very soon into the story they must face a life-threatening health issue, complicated by a pregnancy that presents a difficult decision for them. Their faith is shaken and they struggle with their faith journey. A secret that Beth has kept from Josh threatens their marriage. Josh's music in concerts witnesses to thousands of people, but Beth and Josh's lives impact a certain doctor who had chosen to live a life based on science, not religion and admits that he's an agnostic Jew. Moreover, Beth discovers a God "coincidence" linking their two families many years before. The Road to Mercy is written with compassion and truth. God's grace and mercy are open to everyone who asks. In addition, the minor stories woven within Beth and Josh's are just as intriguing and touching as theirs. Kathy Harris's novel will lift your spirits and reaffirm your faith in God's endless love.
