Book Review: The Miracle of Mercy Land by River Jordan

The Miracle of Mercy Land
River Jordan

What would happen if something mysterious and supernatural came to be in your possession? What if it was a book that had the ability to show you people's lives, including your own? Past, present, and future? What if you could see the doors open and close from the choices that were made and would be made? Would you be tempted to change the story? To make a different choice and walk through a new open door?

Mercy Land is a simple girl, but she has a "backbone full of worthy." She comes from the small community of Bittersweet creek, where her father is a traveling preacher, her mother is a God fearing woman, and her aunt has helped raise her with all the fiestiness she can muster. Mercy moves to Bay City, where she works for Doc Philips, an old man who runs the newspaper of Bay City. It is to Doc Philips that this book is entrusted to, and he soon calls on Mercy to help him find the reason why the book has been given to them. But Doc believes that he has found the reason the book has been given to him, and he believes it is his job to redeem Bay City from a choice that had been made a long time ago. A choice that affected someone from Mercy's past.

River Jordan is a wonderful storyteller. I liked that Mercy Land girl as soon as I met her, and Doc Philips is a man that I would like to meet some day. Mercy, a simple girl with a backbone full of worthy. And aren't we all, somehow simple? But full of worthy when we see ourselves for who God has made us to be? And wouldn't it be an honor if God entrusted us with something so precious because we have cared for others so deeply and made them feel important, just like Doc did throughout his life?

If you are looking for a great book to read, I highly recommend "The Miracle of Mercy Land."

If you click here, you can read the first chapter of the book.

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
