For Mercie’s Sake by Sharon Srock


Sixteen-year-old Scottlyn Rich survives a horrifying experience only to discover she’s pregnant. When she refuses to abort her unborn baby, her father kicks her out. She has no idea how to handle the obstacles ahead, she only knows that giving her daughter, Mercie, a chance to live is the most important thing she'll ever do.

Widowed schoolteacher Diana Kensington lost everything she held dear the day her husband’s plane fell out of the sky. Four hundred and thirty-nine days later she still has no answer to her daily prayer. “What now, God?”

When Scottlyn shows up in Diana’s class, Diana sees an open door. Can trust be built between these two lost women? Can they work together to fill the void in each other's lives, for Mercie's sake?

Definitely a tissue-handy-book. Even through the tears I enjoyed it so much. Isn't it like real life to get so caught up in ourselves and our own needs to miss those hurting right in front of us? I'm looking forward to the next book in this series to see where life will be taking Diana and Scottlyn. Amazon Customer
