Arms of Mercy by Ruth Reid


Arms of Mercy is book two in An Amish Mercies Novel by Ruth Reid. Catherine and Zach have a date to take a sleigh ride. They have been seeing each other for several years and Catherine is thinking Zach will propose. Until Catherine’s ex-boyfriend Elijah returns. When Catherine realizes Zach is not going to propose, she makes plans to travel to Florida to help a family member. Elijah finds out she is going on a trip and gets tickets to go as well. Their trip is filled with tragedy, they are involved in more than one bus accident, both are severely injured and separated.

This is a really good story. Even though it is part of a series, it is a good stand alone story as well. It is a good clean story that shows us the need for forgiveness and listening to God. While reading the story I was repeatedly feeling like nothing else could possibly go wrong. One of the things I liked about this book is that in the worst of times, Catherine still knew the importance of God and prayer. Even when she did not know who she was. I also enjoyed that both Catherine and Elijah were open to listening to the man that would pop into their lives from nowhere and disappear again, possibly an Angel? Catherine has to open her heart to forgiving, not only Elijah, but others who caused Elijah to leave Catherine years earlier. I would recommend this story to any one who enjoys reading Amish stories.

I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishing through BookLook Bloggers. This is my honest review.
