Mercy Roller was raised by a twisted father who wore the collar of a Pastor and chose to be Jesus, judge, and jury by his own appointment. Abused, broken, and bitter Mercy lifts the hand that takes the Pastor’s life. In one swift action she becomes what she despises most about the Pastor. Now she seeks redemption. Can the unconditional love of a mountain preacher and his friends, guide Mercy to find peace?
This book starts with a gripping scene and doesn’t let you go. Mercy is definitely a character who drives the story.
As we are thrown into her world where she must live with the consequences of her decisions we learn slowly about the horrible conditions Mercy had to endure.
This book is not for the weak or squeamish. Cindy holds nothing back as we learn about the depth of Mercy’s abuse. It truly is heartbreaking and will make your skin crawl. It isn’t pretty.
But what does become beautiful is the hope we have the Mercy will see who Jesus really is and that she will actually see that truth through the least likely person — a pastor.
There were times that I feared for Mercy, that she would become like her father, times I didn’t even like her all that much. But I always came back to caring for her and wanting her to see the hope and future that can only be found in Jesus.
