When Mercy Rains by Kim Vogel Sawyer is the first installment in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy so I expect that we can expect to have 2 more novels from this great Amish/Mennonite romance author. The book begins by giving the background of Suzanne Zimmerman's teenage years. Back to her mother sending her off to an unwed mothers home to have her baby and then give it away. Now 20 years later as Suzanne is raising her only child as a single parent. She has done well. She has friends, she went to college to become a nurse, her daughter, Alexa, is a 19 year old to be proud of but she still misses her family and home. That is until her brother, Clete writes her a letter and begs her to come home and take care of her mother. Can she return to care for the woman who sent her away as a pregnant seventeen year old? And what about her old boyfriend who presumably still lives there with his new family? Can she forgive the family who discarded her when she most needed them and help them when they most need her? Will the community forgive her indiscretions and treat her well or at least understand that she was young? So many questions and to find them out read this book.
As a lover of Amish/Mennonite romances I quickly read this novel in a little over a day. It is well written and easily carries the interest of the reader. Ms Sawyer is as always a good author and it is a pleasure to read her work. Thank-you for this newest beginnings a the series.
