This compelling tale of the power of mercy is set against the wide open skies and cattle ranches of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. The main character, Beth, has an affinity for animals and dreams of becoming a vet. Meanwhile her father dreams of opening up the ranch to men needing a second chance. This is a goal Beth supports, but inadvertently undermines with one foolish mistake.  

As Beth struggles to put the pieces back together, things spiral out of control. Mercy becomes a tangible presence for Beth when she encounters a wolf named Mercy. Without knowing whether it's real or a figment of her imagination she sets off on horseback across the Mountains in search of a resolution. The book becomes a study of the role of mercy and forgiveness in our lives and the teaching role God so often plays during hardship.

Fast-paced and well-written, House of Mercy, keeps you on the edge of your seat and, in the end, leaves you wondering. Erin Healy has written an edge-of-your-seat thriller with powerful spiritual undertones. We highly recommend it and give it a 5-star rating.

And now, Our Review: 

I thoroughly enjoyed The Choice from beginning to end and never wanted to put it down.
A realistic, fascinating story of a young woman in 1975 who chooses the loving option of adoption. A mysterious older woman has a recommendation for 17-year-old Sandy which she acts upon. The reader will eventually learn who that older woman is and why she gave Sandy the advice she did.
The young Sandy chooses life for her own twins, and ultimately reconnects with them as young men. She is forced to navigate the trecherous waters of the justice system, and does so willingly to ensure the safety of another young woman and her unborn child. Through Sandy's selfless love, she again saves a son's life, rescues a woman and her children, and ensures the safety of an unborn girl.
The short synopsis above doesn't begin to delve into the depth of characters in this novel. It is excellent and well worth reading. In spite of disappointments, danger and injury, all ends well. Enjoy!

A sincere thank you to Thomas Nelson Publishers and Litfuse for providing us with a free copy in exchange for an honest review. We loved this book. -- Gail Lewis

OCTOBER BABY, by Eric Wilson

I'm sure October Baby the movie is wonderful, but, having read Mr. Wilson's novelization, I feel no overriding need to see it. Experience has shown time and time again that the written page can attain a multidimensional property, depth of insight and characterization, richness of viewer/reader involvement, that the silver screen struggles--often in vain--to achieve. Don't get me wrong, I can immerse myself into a great movie as much as the next guy. But the film version would require a near-magical quality to approach what the author delivers in October Baby the book.

For those not yet acquainted with the story, Hannah, a high school student with aspirations for the stage, falters during a prime performance. In fact, she passes out in the middle of one of her lines. Attempts to discover the source of this and other niggling maladies that plague the otherwise seemingly healthy girl lead to a stark revelation. Not only is she adopted, but she's the survivor of a botched abortion. This knowledge sends her on a quest to find her birth mother, despite the protestations of her adoptive parents and the cautions of her best friend, Josh. Still, Hannah, ultimately with Josh's help, embarks on her journey under the guise of taking a spring break trip to New Orleans with a group of friends; a trip that just happens to take her past the city in which she was born.

A cast of unique supporting characters colors the storyline with grit, hilarity, and poignancy brought to their fullest brilliance under the skilled pen of best-selling author, Eric Wilson. It's quite apparent from the characterization and dialog that Mr. Wilson is very much at home with this genre. He pulls you from the softness of your sofa onto the bumpy back seat of a dilapidated van trundling down the interstate toward the Big Easy, sharing the sights, smells, and sensibilities of teenagers on a lark. Transports you from the comfort of your own existence into the troubled world of a young girl whose life has suddenly been turned upside down and now has no idea what part truth plays in it. It just grabs you and doesn't let go at the turn of the last page. If it doesn't grab you, you might want to check yourself for a pulse.

This tale relates one of the realities of abortion smothered by politcal correctness. Those on the pro-abortion side will dismiss it as lopsided propaganda (as has already happened in reaction to the movie). Those on the pro-life side will laud it for its honesty and fearlessness in addressing such a heart-wrenching issue. Those in the middle, those who don't want to care...well, they'll continue not to care. Maybe.
Sound heavy? No, not really. The journey is often painful, but the destination is emotionally satisfying, like most great novels. Highly recommended, especially for those in the middle.

Oh, and yeah, I'll see the movie. I mean, you know...

And another 'oh'. October Baby is due for release on September 1st. Get in line.  -- Bruce Judisch
