House of Mercy: A Review

Believing she has a gift of healing, Beth wants to become a vet and take care of the animals on her family’s farm. One mistake leaves her family on the brink of bankruptcy, her mother turning against her, and a mysterious wolf that keeps appearing after attacking her, a wolf that leads her to the only one who can save her family—the grandfather she’s never met.

I love the theme of mercy and its power. I also like the character of Beth. The twists and turns are exciting. Yet, there was something missing. Beth’s mother seemed unrealistic and while the author pushed the idea of Jacob, he never stood out as a hero. Instead, I wish Trey’s character had been developed more.
Parts of the story jumped around, and I felt there were a lot of loose ends at the end that seemed to try to throw all the parts together, hoping they would stick together.

Despite its shortcomings, House of Mercy is a thought-provoking read, analyzing God’s response to prayer.

I received this book in exchange for my review. My opinions are my own.
