Mercy's Promise holds a special place in my heart. The story came to me in a dream. It was the opening scene of a mother hiding her little girl behind a chair, as they listen to the pounding of the boots on the heavy wooden floor. I woke with my heart pounding and grabbed a pen.
Glenn Ward needs a miracle. His wife is dying and leaving behind newborn twin sons. He returns from the War a changed man. Guilt stains his soul, and anger is growing in his heart.
Anika Coltrane needs a miracle of her own. After burying her husband and newborn baby on the same day, she’s left with a six-year old daughter to raise.
An answered prayer brings them together and Anika agrees to become a wet-nurse for the family. Delaney needs a safe place to grow up, away from sorrow and fear. Will they find shelter with the Ward family?
Two broken-hearted families must find a way to move past the pain and choose forgiveness. Will they feed the shadows growing in their hearts or allow God to heal their wounds?
