Love Mercy: A Mother and Daughter's Journey from the American Dream to the Kingdom of God by Lisa Samson
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
I am not much of a non-fiction reader, however, there were parts of this novel that read like fiction, so they interested me the most. I also loved the illustrations and spiritual lessons that the authors applied to their lives. Lisa has a cute way of saying things at times that really speaks to my heart. I thought this was a good effort on both mother and daughter's part to show the world what they learned from their experiences as they followed the Scriptures about true religion, which is taking care of the orphans and the widows. A few spots in this book were slow and dragged a bit so I skimmed them. The font was a bit hard on my eyes as it was small and the cursive was a bit difficult to read at times as well. Overall, this was a good effort for communicating putting love into action. I also learned something from this book that made me think more about what is important. I also thought it was neat that Tom Davis was part of this book as well as Claudia Mair Burney. I really, really, really loved Tom Davis's novel, Scared. There were some illustrations in this book that were familiar already because I recalled reading them in Scared. The poverty in Swaziland is horrific, and thankfully Children's Hope Chest is an organization that is doing something about it.
