Mercy Come Morning
For anyone struggling with the issues surrounding Alzheimer's, this story brings hope. I can see how many have been touched by this book. It is a nice story about a daughter's struggle as her mother's health steadily declines.
The book is an easy read and gives a reader a chance to watch someone else overcome a hurt past. Healing and hope comes in many ways even in death.
To be honest, the book was not great, but it was decent. I found some of the descriptions lacking while other descriptions were too wordy. The backdrop of New Mexico was as much a character in the story as Dane or Elana. Yet when the main character, Krista, comes to a new understanding about her past and reconnects with her first love, only one paragraph is dedicated to the one hour long conversation that brought healing and restoration between Dane and Krista.
In summary, the book is decent and reaches a unique demographic.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
