When Mercy Rains by KimVogel Sawyer is an enjoyable book. It is the first book in the Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy. Suzanne Zimmerman has not been home in twenty years. Suzanne became pregnant and her mother sent her away to have the child and give it up to a relative for adoption. In their religion (Old Mennonite) it is a sin to have sex outside the bounds of marriage. After having her child, Suzanne decides not to return home. Suzanne goes to college and becomes a nurse. Her family is now asking her to come home and tend to their mother, Abigail, who was injured on the family farm.
Suzanne decides to go home and take care of her mother for a short time until she can find a qualified nurse to take her place. What the family does not know is that Suzanne has a daughter, Alexa that she is bringing with her. Alexa is excited to find meet her extended family, but does not realize that Suzanne has not told the family anything about her.
There is a lot of bitterness and unhappiness in the Zimmerman family. They are all going to need to have faith and love to overcome their resentment, anger, and unhappiness. Another wonderful book by Kim Vogel Sawyer.
I received a free copy of the book from Blogging for Books for an honest review. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am off to watch Grimm. Happy Reading!
