I just finished reading the Reader's Digest condensed book version of the book Where Mercy Flows by Karen Harter.
From the very start of the Novel, until the end... I was crying!!!
In fairness, the author was able to deliver the story very well.
It was not the kind of story where somewhere in the middle you will be able to tell the rest of the story.
The twist was so unexpected!
And the scenes are so vivid, I could feel myself in the story. I could feel the pain, the happiness, the eagerness, the loneliness of the characters in it.
I am so looking forward to read other novels by this author.
Here is the summary of the book:
When Samantha Dodd left home, it was for love. But 10 years later, she finds herself a single mother struggling to get by, and when she fails to shake a lingering illness, she must return to her hometown in Washington State.
Accompanied by her illegitimate son, TJ, Samantha fears shell never earn the approval of her domineering father, a state supreme court judge with a black-and-white view of the world. As Samantha discovers the severity of her illness, she struggles with making amends for the mistakes of her past.
But everything has changed since Samantha left, and just as she begins to understand her brusque and powerful father, she learns his life is being threatened.
