Product Description

Product Description

When your life is built around a father's wrath, how can you trust in the love of Father God?

Mercy Roller knows her name is a lie: there has never been any mercy in her young life. Raised by a twisted and abusive father who called himself the Pastor, she was abandoned by the church community that should have stood together to protect her from his evil. Her mother, consumed by her own fear and hate, won't stand her ground to save Mercy either.

The Pastor has robbed Mercy of innocence and love, a husband and her child. Not a single person seems capable of standing up to the Pastor's unrestrained evil. So Mercy takes matters into her own hands.

Her heart was hardened to love long before she took on the role of judge, jury, and executioner of the Pastor. She just didn't realize the retribution she thought would save her, might turn her into the very thing she hated most.

>Sent away by her angry and grieving mother, Mercy's path is unclear until she meets a young preacher headed to counsel a pregnant couple. Sure that her calling is to protect the family, Mercy is drawn into a different life on the other side of the mountain where she slowly discovers true righteousness has nothing evil about it--and that there might be room for her own stained and shattered soul to find shelter. . . and even love.

Mercy's Rain is a remarkable historical novel set in 19th century Appalachia that traces the thorny path from bitterness to forgiveness and reveals the victory and strength that comes from simple faith.

What is mercy? Whatever it is, Mercy Roller is tired of hearing her name called each time people pray openly to God to have mercy. She doesn’t feel like she’s received very much mercy from God in being born to a father who is a Pastor and yet is abusive in the name of the Lord. She ultimately kills him. She didn’t set out to kill him, but in the baptism of Stanley Farmer in the Spring of 1897, Pastor Roller held him under the surface of the Indian River. With his legs weak from polio, Stanley couldn’t fight to stand back up. The men who witnessed the baptism (and death) grabbed Roller; tied his hands behind his back; threw a rope over a tree; sat him on a horse and … Mercy slapped the horse’s hind.

Her mother who had also been abused by Pastor kicked her daughter out. At nineteen, Mercy was on her own with nothing except the clothes upon her back and her horse, Slouch. She knows how to take care of herself; she knows how to hunt. In her journey from Wadalow Mountain, TN, she comes across Samuel Stone, a preacher, headed in the opposite direction on his way to see Pastor Roller. She immediately thinks the worst of him. Why should this Pastor be any different from the one she’d known all her life?

Told in first person, Mercy says, “Nothing had changed since I was a youngin. Even as a woman, I still cowered at the sound of his voice. But I was never the same after the morning Pastor took on judge, jury, and Jesus.” I loved the rudimentary level at which this story goes to display human kind. The cruel, diabolic character of Pastor Roller is sharply contrasted with the moral and pure character of Samuel. As a preacher, he didn’t just speak the word ‘love’. His actions were loving and tender but yet firm and resolute. Use of dialogue was very effective.

At first it was a little hard for me to get into the story but, the more I read the more captivated I became. I couldn’t help but pity Mercy as the chapters took me through her life.

The book was really well written even though I did find a few mistakes as I read. I really loved the storyline and how it brought out that no matter what our position in life or our line of work is, there are always people who are good and bad, that no one is perfect.

Mercy’s Rain has taught me quite a bit while I was reading and gave me quite a few things to ponder. Though I have to say my favorite line in the book was said by Samuel “Gentleness comes when gentleness is given.” That line is so true in everything; if we don’t give then we don’t receive.

I hope to read more books by Cindy as they come out. I would also recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a historical novel but, I have to say it is a little darker than most Christian novels.

If ever there was a powerful truth that mercy can overcome anything, when shown to others, then this book proves just that. It is a story of not just doing undo others as you would have them do to you but doing the right thing and showing mercy when all you would like to do is get revenge. Powerful truths!!!!
