Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Meissner’s newest novel is potentially life-changing…[and] achingly romantic…Mercy’s words not only beguile but help Abigail and Lars together face life’s hardest struggles about where true meaning is found, which dreams are worth chasing and which only lead to emptiness, and why faith and hope are essential on life’s difficult path. Meissner’s prose is exquisite, and she is a stunning storyteller. This is a novel to be shared with friends.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Ms. Meissner’s prose sings, and her characters captured my interest from the start.” Robin Lee Hatcher, author of When Love Blooms
“A bit of mystery, fascinating history, and the biggest question of all: What would you do for love?” Roxanne Henke, author of Learning to Fly
“A truly lovely story…In a fantastic blend of old and new, this modern-day novel has the scope and feel of a historical.” Mindy Stern Clark, author of Whispers of the Bayou
“Tender storytelling that keeps you hooked; living, breathing characters that capture your heart and madden you, too; and a message of redemption that sticks with you. Meissner deftly weaves the stories of three women of vastly different generations, connecting them perfectly and crafting a winsome, interesting, powerful read.” Mary DeMuth, author of Watching the Tree Limbs
