A Measure of Mercy by Lauraine Snelling
I read the Red River set and the above mentioned book and the latest is the present review.
This book did not disappoint and I found myself wanting to read more and I hope to eventually read every one I can.
A Measure of Mercy starts out on the growing community called Blessing set in North Dakota in 1903. The characters from past books are blended in but one can read this book easily even if it is a first read in any of the series.
Astrid Bjorklund is eighteen and studying to be a doctor and faces many life forming decisions. The book chronicles her thinking process as well as her medical practice and perspectives and plots from many other characters keeps the reader busy.
My favorite part is reading about the many meals prepared, work done each day and relationships lived out. The best part though is the biblical truths penned so smoothly in and not preached or lectured on.
Bethany House publishers sent me this book at my request and at no charge and I agreed to review it after reading.
