Book Review: Mercy's Rain

Mercy's Rain
An Appalachian Novel
Cindy K. Sproles

Mercy Roller knows her name is a lie. Married and widowed at thirteen, am mother and lidless at fifteen, Mercy has spent her life under the authority of her abusive father, the Pastor. The Pastor rules both her family and the community around Wadalow Mountain, Tennessee. Not a single person seems capable of standing up to the man who calls his sinful actions "righteous," that is, until Mercy takes matters into her own hands. 

Kicked out of her home by her grieving mother, Mercy finds her way to the other side of the mountain  where she slowly learns that true righteousness has nothing evil about it - and that there might be room for her own stained and shattered soul to find shelter and even love.

Cindy K. Sproles is an author and speaker. Her devotions are published in newspapers across the country. Cindy is a teacher at Christian writers conferences and women's conferences nationwide. She spent her formative years showing off her beloved Appalachian Mountains to others, and she and her family still live in the mountains of East Tennessee. 

Normally when I read a historical book it's all about romance. And I mean love story drama like in A Triple Knot. So I was a little surprised that Mercy's Rain was about the main character's own healing, and I love it. Although this is a fictional book I think there are lessons to be learned from it, and it's uplifting to read. If you like A Broken Kind of Beautiful this is a book for you.
