“. . . heartwarming and sweet . . . compelling . . .”–RT Book Reviews on A Love So True
Determined to protect the children of Teaville, Kansas, from the bullying she experienced as a child, Mercy McClain finds fulfillment working at the local orphanage and serving on the school board. When Aaron Firebrook, the worst of her childhood bullies, petitions the board for a teaching position, she’s dead set against his getting the job.
Aaron knows he deserves every bit of Mercy’s mistrust, but he’s returned to his hometown a changed man and is seeking the forgiveness of those he wronged. He doesn’t expect Mercy to like him, but surely he can prove he now has the children’s best interests at heart.
Will resentment and old wounds hold them back, or can Mercy and Aaron overcome the past in time to battle the threats against the future of the town’s orphans?
My thoughts and giveaway:
I have thoroughly been enjoying this series and this book did not disappoint.
Mercy is a wounded character, inside and out. I loved that she wasn’t perfect physically, as most heroines tend to be. She isn’t overly warm and fuzzy, honestly, but she is real.
I really liked Aaron. I loved his story of redemption and how God worked in his life. I couldn’t wait for Mercy to see the man Aaron was now and not hold onto the past.
I adored the other characters in this book as well, the young boys that desperately need to see the love of Jesus.
Have no fear if you haven’t read that other books in this series, you can easily pick this one up and enjoy it. However, the other books in this series are excellent as well.
