    You never know if a sequel will be as captivating as the first book in a series. Frankly, I couldn't imagine Lynn Austin topping the story she had spun in Waves of Mercy. But she did! Legacy of Mercy continues the story of Geesje and Anna in turn-of-the-century (19th to 20th) Michigan....

    Legacy of Mercy is the sequel to the book Waves of Mercy, which came out about 2 years before this one. If you haven't read the first one, you could still enjoy this one, but you will understand more if you read Waves of Mercy first. I was grateful that the author chose to begin the bo...

    Although I love to read, I don't believe I've ever read a novel in two days. But despite my crazy schedule and the fact that doing so meant I had to stay up WAY too late, I read "Legacy of Mercy" in just two sittings. I felt compelled to keep reading because it's just THAT GOOD. This n...
