The Miracle of Mercy Land

Book: The Miracle of Mercy Land

Dates: October 25-29, 2010


Mercy Land has made some unexpected choices for a young woman in the 1930s. The sheltered daughter of a traveling preacher, she chooses to leave her rural community to move to nearby Bay City on the warm, gulf-waters of southern Alabama. There she finds a job at the local paper and spends seven years making herself indispensible to old Doc Philips, the publisher and editor. Then she gets a frantic call at dawn—it’s the biggest news story of her life, and she can’t print a word of it.

Doc has come into possession of a curious book that maps the lives of everyone in Bay City—decisions they’ve made in the past, and how those choices affect the future. Mercy and Doc are consumed by the mystery locked between the pages—Doc because he hopes to right a very old wrong, and Mercy because she wants to fulfill the book’s strange purpose. But when a mysterious stranger shows up, Mercy begins to understand she may have to choose between love and loneliness . . . or good and evil . . . for the rest of her life.
I really thought that this was going to be a good read, but it became very confusing. The characters had some "magical" book that appeared in their office one day, & allowed them to look into the lives of others. I felt like I never really knew what was going on. It was like I never really figured what the story was about.
This book was provided for me to review by WaterBrook Multanomah.

Have you met Buttercup?

What she does best!


How can you resist this face???

Buttercup is our Shorkie {shiztu & yorkie}, we've had her going on
three years now. She's been the best dog! There are times she gets
on my nerves, but we love her!

On another note, since Halloween is this week, I decided since I was having such trouble with that last templete I tried, I went ahead and just changed it & just used one for Halloween, even though it was super cute.. but the header seemed like it was off or something, I don't know!

I've downloaded that Paintbrush program, in the hopes I could crop a picture & put it in there. I just can't figure it out! So... that's where ya'll come in... I know there are some of you out there, that know all about this! Can ya help me out???

Please & Thank You!!!

Please Excuse My Mess!

I am attempting to redo my blog look, by which I should warn you I have really no clue, I am learning by trial & error, so in the event you are here & it looks very unorganized & scattered {which is how my brain is feeling}.

I'll get it figured out & if I don't then I'll just change it back to the way it was!
