Описание

Sixteen-year-old Faith has worked full-time in her parents' restaurant since she finished eighth grade. She loves her Amish community—and the romantic attentions of her longtime friend, Gideon.

When her sister seems to be getting too friendly with Englischers, and her parents are in a buggy accident, Faith wants to escape into her dream of joining the church and getting married.

But then a local newspaper runs a story about a child named Adriana who was kidnapped fifteen years earlier, and everything Faith has held true comes into question.

Suddenly the community Faith has known her whole life seems unreal. Can she even trust her own family? And how will she ever find home again if she no longer belongs in the world she knows best?

    Title: Abiding Mercy (An Amish Mercies Novel)Author: Ruth ReidPages: 352Year: 2017Publisher: Thomas NelsonMy rating: 5 out of 5 starsThe leading character in the story is Faith who was taken from her home when she was six years old. She remembers nothing of her former life. For years she has lived with an Amish couple and older sister, believing this has always been her family until one day the past and present collide! Before this moment, Faith was wrestling with her tenuous relationship with her sister, running a restaurant since her parents’ accident and falling in love. Now her future is a blur of activity and change in an English world with parents she doesn’t remember. Plus, Faith has no idea why her Amish parents or boyfriend haven’t written to her at all.The novel is rich with faith when there seems to be nothing good occurring. Plus, we see how Faith is trying to please her biological mother, but it goes against everything she has ever been taught. On top of that, there are legal repercussions, threats against her Amish parents, and more that set Faith on edge. Gideon doesn’t know what to think as he sees how much Faith has changed on the outside and believes it is the same change going on in her heart.I am so glad Ruth Reid writes stories that are faith filled as well as having suspense, mystery, lifelike happenings that bring two totally different worlds into one young woman’s life. Readers get to see how she chooses between the two worlds and why. I can sit and read Ruth’s books for hours as they are entertaining, thought provoking and written in a way that I can’t wait to see how the story ends.So, if you’re a reader who likes these types of books, here is a golden one to read, enjoy and perhaps pass around to family and friends!

    This is such a great story. I laughed and cried. It would be very hard to find out that the people who raised you your whole life weren't your real parents. Your sister isn't your blood sister. These would be so unusual to find out. Ruth Reid handles these problems so well. I did not want to put this book down. I look forward to more in the Amish mercies series. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

    This book was hard to put down. The character development and content were excellent. I was encouraged by the scripture in the book.

    This book is amazing! Twists and turns, love, hope and forgiveness and of course God all play an important part of this book! I didn’t want it to end

    Come and immerse yourself in the life of Faith, aka Adrianna, a sixteen year old Amish girl, and you won’t want to let her go. As the book opens a horrible thing happens and an eighteen-month-old infant is snatched, but as you read God was looking out for her, and when all is said and done, you will wonder if it was his way of bringing others into the fold.We are with Faith as she goes about her everyday life as a responsible Amish woman, and she is one busy girl. She is confident and knows who she is and what she wants, and seems to have a joy about her.Suddenly her world collapse and she is no longer Faith but Adrianna, and where there should be joy there is now sorrow. I felt myself torn in so many directions, and as a mother, where did I want her to be. If life is unfair, this has to be one of those horrible moments when you want to be in two places at once, and be happy there.The author did an amazing job with this fictional story, and yet it seemed so real, and when you find out why she was kept, makes more sense to me. I loved this book, and although it ends, you can imagine the future.I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.

    I am still trying to absorb the emotional rollercoaster I have been on while reading this book. I am overwhelmed by the well crafted storyline and the characters I have come to love. The author has written a treasure filled with raw emotions that seep deep into your soul. If you haven’t read this book yet, you need to grab a copy right now. It will be a journey of secrets, tragedy, and forgiveness. Between the pages you find mercy and grace that fills the hearts of the characters. Faith is a wonderful young woman who works hard at her family’s restaurant . I loved reading about the delicious bread and other menu items that the restaurant served. Her sister Olivia is a bit rebellious and has a little jealous streak going on. Her disobedience was heartbreaking to read and I wanted to ground her until she stopped acting like a spoiled child. When their parents are severely injured in a buggy accident Faith must step up and run the restaurant with little help from her sister. I loved the differences the sisters had in how to help their parents. It shows readers how siblings argue, become jealous and do mean things. Gideon was a character I wasn’t sure of at first. He liked Olivia but didn’t like the way she was swaying toward the English way of life. Maybe that is why Faith captured his attention or perhaps Gideon had always liked her. I loved how he stepped up and helped Faith’s father with his chores around the farm. With all Gideon had on his shoulders, he also found time to help Faith at the restaurant as well. What really intrigued me the most was the story of a baby that was kidnapped many years ago. The author does a great job of developing that storyline parallel to Faith. Is it possible that Faith was kidnapped long ago and raised Amish? Were her parents part of the kidnapping? I will have to say that the story hooked me right away and I couldn’t put it down. I had to find out about the mysterious kidnapping and also about a stranger that appears throughout the book. He has Godly words to give to several people that will shake them to their core. Don’t miss this story that not only shares about family but shows you what mercy is about.I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. The review is my own opinion.

    Abiding Mercy by Ruth Reid is An Amish Mercies Novel. Fifteen years prior in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Roslyn Colepepper is loading groceries into her car. She is attacked and her car is stolen with her eighteen-month-old daughter, Adrianna inside. The FBI are immediately called in. They soon find the abductors car and watch as it goes over a bridge and into the river. They do not find any survivors. Fast forward fifteen years to Posen, Michigan. Faith Pinkham is sixteen years old and works at her families’ restaurant, The Amish Table with her sister, mother and cousin. Olivia, Faith’s sister, seems to resent Faith and treats her terribly. One day they receive a call that their parents, Mordecai and Irma, were in an accident. It will take them weeks to recover. In the meantime, they must ensure that the farm chores are done and the restaurant continues to earn money. Olivia prefers to spend her time with her Englischer friends, and Faith is afraid that Olivia will soon jump the fence. Luckily, Faith has the help of Gideon Fohrer. As they spend time together, they grow closer. On the fifteenth anniversary of Adrianna’s kidnapping, The Detroit News runs an article with a picture of what Adrianna would look like now. Faith’s parents return home and life is getting back on track. Then one day Faith’s life changes irrevocably. Faith now questions who she is and where she belongs. What does the future hold for her? Faith is embarking on a journey. To see what happens to Faith, you will need to read Abiding Mercy.Abiding Mercy is a well-crafted story. The book has well-developed characters in an engaging story. I was drawn into the story and read late into the night. We get to see both sides of the situation in Abiding Mercy as the novel tells us Faith’s story and the Colepepper’s (mostly Roslyn). Ms. Reid did a superb job at weaving the past and present together into one appealing story. My rating for Abiding Mercy is 4.25 out of 5 stars. I did, though, find it a wee bit predictable. Partway into the book, I knew how the story would play out. That did not stop me, though, from devouring the book. There are a couple of unexpected twists. I appreciated that the romantic element was light. I liked the message that God is always with us. He is there to help and guide us (if we want His help). I did feel that the ending was a little rushed. At the end of the book, I am left wondering about the red-haired man. He is a present in different forms throughout the whole book. Who is he? I will be curious to see if he is present in the other books in the series. I would like to know more about Olivia (she needs a book of her own). Abiding Mercy is not your traditional (expected) Amish novel (which I welcomed). I will be eagerly anticipating the next edition in An Amish Mercies series.
