This week, the

Traces of Mercy
David C. Cook (October 1, 2013)
Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley

Michael Landon Jr., son of television legend Michael Landon, is an award-winning storyteller, first in television and film, and now in books. His print works include One More Sunrise co-written with Tracie Peterson. 
Cindy Kelley is the co-author of the novel The Silent Gift, and Traces of Mercy. Her career as a screenwriter with long-time writing partner, Michael Landon, Jr., began with the adaptation of Margery Williams’ classic story, The Velveteen Rabbit, which had a theatrical release. Several television movies followed, most notably Love Comes Softly, (based on Janette Oke’s novel) which won a CAMIE Award and the Epiphany Prize for Movie Guide’s most inspirational television movie of 2003. Cindy and her husband, Jim, make their home in the Southwest; have three adorable grandchildren and four big dogs who rule the house.


From Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley, authors of The Silent Gift and creators of the hit television film Love Comes Softly, comes an exciting historical romance set in post-Civil War, and filled with suspense and faith-building values.

At the war’s end, a young woman suffers an accident that leaves her unconscious and alone. Waking with amnesia, she takes the name Mercy and wants more than anything to find out the truth of her past. But then a handsome stranger arrives, who may hold the key to everything she has forgotten. What he knows could devastate her future, and even end her life.

Written by two proven storytellers, Traces of Mercy is perfect for anyone who loves historical fiction, prairie-based tales, or just a good romance.

If you'd like to read the first chapter of Traces of Mercy, go HERE

My thoughts:  I need to know more!  Seriously!  What happened to Mercy?  What about Isaac?  Sigh, I hate when books end on that kind of note and the second one is not ready yet.  I do have to say that the first of the book is awesome with no hint to who Mercy really is.  And now of course after finishing the book we don't know much more about Mercy.  We do know she's starting to have memories!  I love the one of the little Mercy being swung up by a loving papa.  Sigh, those are good memories.  Anyway, great book.  Need more books in the series and I need them NOW.  Yes I am impatient. Very impatient.  And that I really love historical fiction set around the Civil War?  Yes I do, I really do.  Anyway, go get this book, then read it, then re read it or pass it on.  Good book.  Though as a Southern reenactor there were a few things that made me shake my head. . . . but to the victor goes the pleasure of writing history their way.
