A Little Prayer And A Lot Of Patience
Cherished Mercy by Tracie Peterson is a delightful Christian historical romance. It is the third book in the Heart Of The Frontier series but can be read as a stand-alone as the previous two books are incorporated in the story. I would recommend reading the previous two books first as they will help in the reader’s understanding of character development and why some characters behave as they do.
This series has followed three sisters through the real life Whitman Mission massacre (1847) to this novel opening in 1855. This book is Mercy’s story. The reader has seen her develop from a twelve year old to a young woman, still tender hearted but tough when she has to be. She is, as her name suggests, full of mercy. She realises that a heart full of hate is not productive, nor what God wants.
