Traces of Mercy by Michael Landon Jr. & Cindy Kelley
In Traces of Mercy, first release in the new MERCY MEDALLION TRILOGY, Landon partners with Kelley to write a historical novel that mixes prairie romance with Civil War-era drama. Readers long for inspiration, and they will be thrilled to see faith-building values woven throughout Traces of Mercy.
As the U.S. Civil War ends, a young woman barely survives a tragic accident. Fortunate to be alive, she awakens to find that amnesia has robbed all memory of her past. Unable even to remember her given name, she takes the name Mercy from a mercy medallion found around her neck and tries to learn the truth about her self. With no memory, no one to help, and no money to her name, Mercy is given a place to live at the local convent. Just as she is embraces her future, a stranger who may hold the key to her past enters the picture. Does he know a secret that could devastate her and end her new life?
In Traces of Mercy, Landon and Kelley tell a story of redemption and romance, which readers adore, rich in Civil War history. In the AfterWords section, readers will find book club-type discussion questions that are perfect for anyone from book clubs to homeschool groups. The legacy of the Landon name and that faith will be reaffirmed by Traces of Mercy. Readers can look forward to Finding Mercy coming in June 2014.
