interesting story

The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner tells the story of Lauren, a young women from a wealthy family who desires to be free from the restrictions money places on her; and of Mercy, a young woman whose life takes a tragic turn--her story told through a diary that Lauren is transcribing for Mercy's distant relative, Abigail.

One finds themselves falling in love with Mercy and drawn into her story as she writes poignantly about the dark days during the Salem witch trials of which she becomes a victim. This book, like others of Meissners, takes the reader on a journey from present to past and back again, but without the confusion that some authors create. The tales are interwoven and yet parallel as each present day character learns lessons about themselves.

It's a great read, and I would definitely recommend that you find the time to read it!

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