Product Description

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?

Editorial Reviews

"A compelling cast of authentic characters, heart-wrenching mistakes and responses, and love, redemption, and restoration make When Mercy Rains by Kim Vogel Sawyer a must-read masterpiece."
—Mona Hodgson, author of The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series, The Quilted Heart omnibus, and Prairie Song

"Kim Vogel Sawyer paints characters with exquisite detail emotionally and physically, then sets them in a story that transports the reader into a world equally as appealing as the people who live there. A captivating read, leaving you wanting more."
—Lauraine Snelling, author of To Everything a Season in the Red River series, Wake the Dawn, and Heaven Sent Rain

"When Mercy Rains takes readers on a remarkable journey into the lives of the Zimmermans, a Mennonite family whose secrets threaten to destroy them. With a compelling style, Kim Vogel Sawyer weaves a story of love, compassion, forgiveness, redemption, and a family determined to discover and accept the truth. This novel captivates and challenges—a wonderful read."
—Judith Miller, best-selling author of the Home to Amana Series

"Perhaps you’ve heard the old phrase ’You can’t go home again.’ Kim Vogel Sawyer proves it wrong in her beautifully written novel When Mercy Rains. Intriguing, tender, bittersweet…this heart-wrenching story took me to places I didn’t even realize I wanted to go. Highly recommended."
—Janice Hanna Thompson, author of Fools Rush In and The Dream Dress

"When Mercy Rains is a beautiful testimony to the power of forgiveness. With three generations of characters to fall in love with, Kim Vogel Sawyer’s new novel kept me turning pages—and discovering surprises—to the very end. I especially enjoyed the Kansas setting and the restoration of a homestead that was a beautiful reflection of the restoration of hearts and minds."
—Deborah Raney, author of The Face of the Earth and the Chicory Inn Novels series

    This review was written for When Mercy Rains.
    This book is the first book in Kim Vogel Sawyer's new series, the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy. I have always enjoyed Sawyer's books and have yet to read one by her that I have disliked. This book was such a wonderful start to this new series. I'm excited to see where she goes with the next two books!

    My heart broke in several places in this book. The relationship between Suzanne and her mother was tense, to say the least. I can understand why because of some of the decisions Suzanne made, but the unforgiveness was sad. I can understand the disappointment from her mother, but I longed to see that relationship restored. Even after all of the pain that Suzanne experienced, I couldn't help but want her to have a happy ending.

    The story landed itself to irony when Suzanne's brother contacts her. Who would have ever thought!However because of this, her life just may go in a different direction that she ever intended. Or maybe she dreamed of it long, long ago.

    I am looking forward to getting my hands on the next book in the series. It'll be a great book to take to the beach with me, I think!

    This review was written for When Mercy Rains.
    The first book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy, Sawyer writes the story of Susanne Zimmerman, a woman rejected by her mother who then sets out to build her own life for her and her daughter. Becoming pregnant at the age of seventeen, Suzy's mother sends her away with the promise that Suzy can return after she delivers and gives the baby to her cousin. But when Suzy doesn't return, her mother weaves a story of her "missionary daughter." Meanwhile Susanne, as she prefers to be called, builds a new life as nurse and secretly raises her daughter. Called home unexpectedly to care for her injured mother, Susanne walks a fine line between her family and the shame of being an unwed mother. Things intensify when her old beau is called upon to remodel the family home. Can Susanne keep the situation from boiling over before she can leave? Or will her family ties always be strained?

    This is the first Sawyer book I've ever read. I was hesitant to try a new author, but the story quickly drew me in and I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. While this is an Amish/Mennonite book, the themes are very universal. It wasn't long before I forgot about the religion of the characters and was heavily invested in their internal struggles. Throughout this book, we're faced with questions of family, loyalty, forgiveness, and fear. Most of all this is a book about relationships: who we will fight for, who we will fight with, and how hard will we work to save a relationship.

    This was one of the best Amish fiction books I've read in awhile. The author weaves a story that takes more twists and turns than you would think imaginable. Just when I thought I had this one figured out, the author would twist the story again. This book is definitely worth a read and I'm anxious the read the next in the trilogy.

    *Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book for review. All opinions are my own.

    This review was written for When Mercy Rains.
    When Mercy Rains by Kim Vogel Sawyer is the first book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy. In some of the author's latest books, I couldn't figure out why they weren't as good as some of her first books, but now I see why - this genre is where she shines! I fell in love with this author's work once again. It has suspense, sadness, bitterness, and joy with realistic characters that you root for every step of the way. I wasn't ready to the let story go, and my only consolation is that there are two more books coming. And the sequel is already out! Whoo hoo!!!

    Suzanne Zimmerman left home in disgrace when she was seventeen. Her mother told her to give up the baby to her cousins and then return home, but Suzanne never came back home. Instead she made a life for herself in Indiana, became a nurse, and worked at a Mennonite hospital. She hasn't been home in twenty years and has no plans of returning until she receives a letter from her brother, Clete, asking her to come and take care of their paralyzed mother. Shocked, Suzanne can't even think of going, but her daughter, Alexa, convinces her it's the right thing to do. So they head to Kansas for two months.

    No one knows about Alexa, and Suzanne isn't going to explain herself to anyone especially Paul Aldrich, the boy she loved so long ago. Can she make it two months without spilling all her long held secrets?

    What follows is a captivating story of betrayal and forgiveness, truth being set free of the lies, joy amidst pain, and finally some peace. The story was a good reminder to not let bitterness take root in your heart especially since it damages everyone around you. Forgiveness was a big component here, and I can't wait to read more about this family. There is still some growing that needs to be done with all the characters. If you enjoy stories with depth, you will love this book. I highly recommend this book!

    I was given this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was written for When Mercy Rains.
    This was a very touching story that only kept you on the edge of your seats and would surprise you in ways you wouldnt expect. It was a great read, and I believe it will be a great series. You dont have to read part 2. This is a complete story, but if you want to see how the characters lives unfold, then you will most definitely want to get part 2 when it comes out.

    This story reminds us of all the times you let a sin way you down and change your life. Then all of sudden you get to witness Gods Mercy as it rains on you and you open your eyes to His forgiveness and really get to embrace life. This is such a good read that lets you realize that maybe you didnt get where you are today by the way you think is right, but God has held you tightly in his care. You are here for a purpose. God knew you at birth, your past doesnt matter, and He has a great plan for you! Just hang on to this! If you know someone that has dealt with getting pregnant out of wedlock and dealing with not forgiving themselves, this would be a great book for them. Either way, we can all learn something by reading this Amish novel. Thank you WaterBrookpress. "I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this Honest review."
