Mercy Come Morning
Lisa Tawn Bergren’s book “Mercy Come Morning” is an emotional story about Krista Mueller and her relationships. Krista Mueller is in a good place in her life, she has a successful career and she has put miles between her and her mother. Years of hurt and disappointment has made her want to stay away. She pushed Dane McConnell out of her life and everything she had known. She started over and was glad, but then her mother who is suffering from Alzheimer’s is now dying, stirring emotions to the surface that Krista doesn’t understand. Krista discovers she really needs healing.
This book really touched me. I am blessed to have a wonderful relationship with my mother and it breaks my heart to know that others have missed out on such a blessing. It’s never too late to make amends even when all seems hopeless. This book will make you focus on the blessings you have now and teach you not to take for granted those things that matter. Make every minute of your life count and let God lead you in your journey in this life. It will teach you the importance of opening your heart and your mind to others around you. It will show you that some things aren’t always as they seem.
The only con that I could find is this book is at times the book was a little slow and a little wordy but not so much to make me not want to read it. I would gladly recommend this book to others, but remember there are parts that will make you cry.
I received this book at no charge from Waterbrook Press in exchange for an honest review.
