5 Stars Out Of 5
House of Mercy
August 6, 2012
House of Mercy is Erin Healy's latest book and it is very unique!. I have read all of her books and each one is so different. She is truly a gifted storyteller and this book fits into that category.
The story centers around Beth who has a gift of healing and she wants to be a vet. She lives on a cattle ranch with her family and they have a haven for men needing a second chance. All is going well until:
she decides to steal a saddle, ride a thoroughbred (not hers) and the horse is injured. Life starts to spiral downward when the owner of the horse wants to sue her, her father dies, college hopes are shattered,possible farm loss and a grandfather she does not know. She finds out that he is wealthy and sets out on horseback to find him. She is guided by a wolf-is he real or not?
This is just a snippet of the storyline. How will Beth find mercy and will she ever find peace?
This one line in the story just stuck out and I pondered for quite a while on it.
"You did what you had the opportunity to do. And the One who orders the world worked through you. We do what we can with the resources God gives us, Bethesda. We should try to do no more than that"
If you have not read any of Erin Healy's book-please do-she has a way of telling stories that stay with you long after the last page has been turned.
Thank you Thomas Nelson for this free book just for my honest opinion.
