Streams of Mercy

“Streams of Mercy” by Lauraine Snelling takes us back to
Blessing, North Dakota. Angi Moen has returned to Blessing after losing her husband in Norway. She becomes friends with newcomer Thomas Devlin. Thomas is a priest but without a church. He passes the time in Blessing by being a carpenter. Angi settles back into Blessing easily as she begins to teach school and write for the newspaper. Things seem to be going well for everyone in Blessing until a diseased stricken circus train arrives to town. Not only do many of the circus performers fall in but so do several of our beloved citizens. Drs. Elizabeth and Astrid do everything they can to keep everyone well and then the unthinkable happens. The citizens of Blessing must remain hopeful and trusting in God to see them through this new crisis.

This is the third book in the Song of Blessing series and it will tug your heart. It is another wonderfully written book and that draws you into the daily life of the Bjorklund family and their many friends. This book shows us that sometimes life is not fair but we should never turn away from God in our most trying times. He knows our futures and will see us through the darkest of days if we only rely fully on Him. I highly recommended reading all of the books in all of the Blessing series’. Lauraine Snelling is a wonderful writer that knows how to draw you in and make you feel like you are a character in the book. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.
