We have had the opportunity once again to review a wonderful book. This is the “Legacy of Mercy” and it is the sequel to “Waves of Mercy” by the amazing author, Lynn Austin. I really have enjoyed Austin’s writing style and love how she paints her characters so lifelike. This book is no different. I have never read the first book but I didn’t feel at any time that I was lost in the story or that I didn’t understand. This book sets us in an immigrant town of Holland, Michigan.
Our main character is Anna who is an orphan girl of humble circumstances that has been adopted by the man that saved her life when ‘Ironsides’ sank in the dark and murky waters and stole the life of her young mother. The couple is wealthy and raises the child to lack nothing. This story sees her coming of age, a socialite and engaged not for love but for the love of her beloved parents. It is a tale of gossip and finding the truth, of working out one’s faith and putting feet to that faith. It is about finding out who you really are and God’s purpose for your life.
It was a very good book. I hated to see it end. By the way, I love her grandma.
