Publisher's Description

Faith faces an impossible situation: Should she do the right thing and bring heartache to nearly everyone she knows or deny her true self and always wonder . . . what if?

Sixteen-year-old Faith has worked full-time in her parents’ restaurant since she finished eighth grade. She loves her Amish community—and the romantic attentions of her longtime friend, Gideon.

When her sister seems to be getting too friendly with Englischers, and her parents are in a buggy accident, Faith wants to escape into her dream of joining the church and getting married.

But then a local newspaper runs a story about a child named Adriana who was kidnapped fifteen years earlier, and everything Faith has held true comes into question.

Suddenly the community Faith has known her whole life seems unreal. Can she even trust her own family? And how will she ever find home again if she no longer belongs in the world she knows best?

    Hebrews 13:2 (NAS) Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. Ruth Reid conveys this verse with her novel, Abiding Mercy". A red-headed man continually appears to Faith and her family. They show mercy, compassion and hospitality to the stranger. Are they in fact, entertaining an angel unaware"? This story looks at the pain and sorrow of Roslyn and her husband. They lost their daughter to a kidnapper fifteen years ago and they are still looking for her. Will they find her after all these years? Readers will enjoy reading this novel to find out if Roslyn's broken heart will finally be healed.

    While this story is predictable for most of the situations presented, it is a very enjoyable read. I am quite happy to recommend this book to readers who enjoy Christian fiction, Amish fictions and romance.

    I am rating this novel 5 stars.

    I received an ebook of this novel from netgalley and Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    When I began reading this book I was uncertain as you begin by following two story lines and I can read two different books at once but sometimes I personally have difficulty with the two story line concept. However I quickly got over the difficulty and loved the way that Ruth weaves the stories into one. If you are a fan of Amish Fiction and have not read author Ruth Reid - you need to add her to your TBR pile. Englisher couple Roslyn and Brandon's baby is missing?? Faith is a young Amish girl living a wonderful Amish life falling in love with Gideon. How do these two stories come together? It is a must read. I do not want to give you too much there are so many twist and turns to enjoy in the story. Ruth Reid thank you for the opportunity to read this wonderful and exciting book.

    This novel grabbed me from the beginning. An eighteen month old child is kidnapped in a stolen car and the mother knocked out. Follow two different lifestyles from chapter to chapter. Roslyn and her husband are depicted over a fifteen year period as they search for their kidnapped child Adrianna. Every other chapter follows Faith in her small Amish community. Both of these lives go through problems and disappointments but they handle them in such different ways.

    I love the realization even in evil and sin committed in lives, God uses it to turn lives around and guide those to his plan. This was clearly evident for Faith and possibly a change for Rosalyn and her husband in the future. The emotions of the characters were real, sometimes heartbreaking. There was also joy, happiness and love. I was truly invested in the lives of these characters and literally prayed for a good ending. Reading this novel was time well invested!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Fiction Guild and was not required to write a review.

    A soul-stirring story of loss, a mother's love in never giving up and God's precious care of and provision for His little ones and His unique way of blessing and caring for all involved. His mercy is evident throughout.

    Many important values are touched on and thought provoking but God is good, yes, all the time and His love and mercy shine through.

    Ruth's stories get better and better. It's fun trying to guess how things will turn out for each character.

    I recommend this book to all lovers of good Christian fiction.

    Thank you, Fiction Guild, for another winner.

    I received this book from The Fiction Guild. I was not asked or required to give a favorable review. All thoughts are my own. This is a wonderful story about a young woman that was taken from her mother by her nanny expecting to get the reward. She was 18 months old when she was taken, she is 16 how. But because of a few bad decisions by the kidnapper she was left with a Amish family. She has grown up with a sister and loving parents, but her birth mother never gave up thinking she was alive. She tries one more time to try to find her daughter Adriana. Little did Faith now 16 is that little girls. They tell a story about how each family has grown and changed in those 15 years. When she gets taken back to her birth family it doesn't feel right to Faith, she wants to go back but figures she can make that decision at 18. She is taken from a family she loves and a man she wants to marry. I loved this story, I cried and felt so much. This is a wonderful read.
