I found this book to be an interesting read. First off, the book cover doesn’t look anything like what you would expect a Christian publisher to display on its shelves. Looks more at home in the general fiction area. In a way, that’s good to be able to delve into other markets. But considering the book wasn’t overtly heavy on Christianity, one can almost understand the generality of the book cover. It looks dramatic. Intriguing. It pulls you in and left hoping that the story within is as good as the drama portrayed.
Portrait of Mercy is about Gwen Marcey. She has a past and she keeps it pretty much contained, but then she is called on to investigate a missing child case. Strangely, alot of the details in this case is similar to her childhood. Needless to say, she wants to know what is going on and why.
In the meantime, her ex-husband is creating an emotional disturbance by threatening to take sole custody of their daughter, something she is not willing to happen. Something must come to head, because she can’t continue going the ways things are now.
This review contains my own thoughts and opinions. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.
