Summary

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 15 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?

Surprising good

I believed it would not be a book l would like, I mostly listen to western, jack reacher, and science fiction. It held the suspense most of the book and Callie beau lieu did an excellent job with the different dialects the people from Pennsylvania have. I will listen to more of this narrator and author.

Good story

The story line is good... However, the narrator is a little mechanical in her reading. It would have been nice to know what happened to the kidnappers.

Abiding Faith

Abiding Mercy was an enjoyable story with great surprises and twist. The story line was confusing at times going from past to present time, but it didn’t take away from the quality of the story. Who was the redhead stranger? An angel perhaps. Some questions remain but all in all and enjoyable read.

Slow..

The story started out well but then began to lag. It seemed to just droll on and on. The narrator is boring and simply does not read aloud well, taking unnecessary pauses at the wrong moment. I wish I hadn’t wasted a credit.
