Imagine that there was a war-- and you slept through the whole thing. When you awoke you remembered nothing, not what side you were on, or any thing about your previous life... nothing.
Heroine "Mercy" has amnesia, and though I imagine she wished she had slept through the Civil War, she comes to realize that she was far from passive in her choices.
Finding Mercy opens with Mercy hiding in a chimney on a dark and stormy night. Bounty hunters are on her trail and they want to exact their revenge.
The war is over but the tension on both sides of the line hangs thick in the air. Who's right and who's wrong is no longer important; emotion is ruling in both the North and South and each side wants to exact their pound of flesh for losses suffered.
Mercy has become a lightening rod for trouble of every kind but she has no idea why.
I have been awaiting the sequel to Traces of Mercy by Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley, and I am happy to say that it surpassed every expectation. If possible, read Traces of Mercy first--it's truly wonderful.
