The newest release from the pen of Lynn Austin is a sequel she never planned to write… But oh my, I am so glad she did! “Legacy of Mercy” is the continuing story that began in “Waves of Mercy”, which released from Bethany House a couple of years ago. This follow-up to the sweeping saga of a young girl desperate to find meaning in her future, and a middle-aged woman struggling to make sense of her past, is just as compelling, just as well-written, and just as un-put-downable as the first, except this time all the loose ends are masterfully tied up, and the longed-for closure is provided.
Just like it’s prequel, “Legacy of Mercy” is written from the viewpoints of two women, both telling their overlapping stories in first-person, present-tense narrative format. Without revealing any vital plot points, let me just say that the twists and turns, mysteries and revelations, heartaches and triumphs, are absolutely breathtaking.
If you enjoy Christian Historical Fiction that is extraordinarily well-written, contains a gripping and unusual storyline, and is built on themes that dive deep into the heart of what it means to follow God with all our hearts, I highly recommend Lynn Austin’s “Legacy of Mercy”. When combined with “Waves of Mercy”, this pair of novels provides a rich, almost unparalleled reading experience that will take you on an unforgettable journey.
