From Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley, authors of The Silent Gift and creators of the hit television film Love Comes Softly, comes an exciting new historical romance series set in post-Civil War, and filled with suspense and faith-building values. At the war’s end, a young woman suffers an accident that leaves her unconscious and alone. Waking with amnesia, she takes the name Mercy and wants more than anything to find out the truth of her past. But then a handsome stranger arrives, who may hold the key to everything she has forgotten. What he knows could devastate her future, and even end her life. Written by two proven storytellers, Traces of Mercy is perfect for anyone who loves historical fiction, prairie-based tales, or just a good romance.
Mercy is the name that she claimed when she wakes up with amnesia and her entire past is a mystery. She is found with a "mercy" medallion around her neck, and she isn't sure about anything else in her life.
She is placed temporarily in the care of loving sisters at the nearby church and orphanage. Although too old to be one of the orphans, she soon finds a home and a feeling of security in the tranquil setting. Bit by bit, little pieces of her past are coming back to her memory.
There are many secrets from Mercy's past, some of which will turn her world upside down. This is the first book in a great new Medallion Series, and I look forward to reading the next books.
