Summary

Having returned to Chicago, young socialite Anna Nicholson can't seem to focus on her upcoming marriage. The new information she's learned about her birth mother continues to pull at her, and she hires Pinkerton detectives to help her find the truth. But as she meets people who once knew her mother and hears stories about the past, Anna soon discovers that some secrets are better left hidden.

At the same time, unflattering stories about Anna are leaked by someone who would love to see her disgraced and her engagement broken. And as Anna tries to share her faith with her society friends, she understands that her choice to seek God's purpose for her life isn't as simple as she had hoped.

When things are at their darkest, Anna knows she can turn to her grandmother, Geesje de Jonge, back in Holland, Michigan. Geesje's been helping new Dutch immigrants, including a teen with a haunted past, adjust to America. She only hopes that her wisdom can help all these young people through the turmoil they face.

Amazing story

Amazing story. But the performance was not satisfying. One reader I had to speed up while the other to slow Down. The voice of keisha's interpreter when being other characters was too loud while her character I could barely hear. I had to constantly adjust the volume.

Legacy of Mercy

Lynn Austin is the most gifted writer I have ever read!! This book was no exception!! The narrating , every voice was perfectly matched to the character! From beginning to end the story held me captive as I entered into the places and lives of the people she created !!! I have purchased all of Lynn books to give as presents to my friends for Christmas and birthdays ! I want them to be swept away into another time and place as I have been through Lynn Austin !

Legacy of Mercy

I listened to this one
First not knowing it was a sequel. Fell in love with the characters, and the way they were developed. I listened to the 1st book, “Waves of Mercy”, after Legacy of Mercy, and was just as delighted with it! I reread or re-listen to her books over and over and
discover something new each time. She never disappoints!! Very well done!

Waiting for part 3 in this uplifting series

The Christ-Likeness in several of the characters is beautiful strong...making the contrast with the struggles of our woundedness very real particularly as the characters receive healings.

A winner!

I'm going to finish listening to the last few chapters of this book very slowly so as to postpone saying goodbye to a wonderful story. Mrs. Austin has preserved her reputation as a fantastic writer of Christian fiction. This is simply one of the best books I've read/ listened to, and I've surely read hundreds of Christian novels. The narration is excellent and greatly enhances the listening experience, although I do plan to read it slowly in the near future. Be sure to read the first in the series before starting this. Thank you, Lynn Austin, and please keep writing!

Great Read!

This historical novel is brought to life by the audible performance of its cast .
I have read it three times because I have gained a better appreciation of the role of women in early years in America and the role Christianity.

Great Book

I loved the story and the way that it presented real feelings of Christians and their family highs and lows. All the whole showing the hand of God weaving in His blessings and interweaving lives together for His purposes.

Legacy of Mercy

I’m so glad Lynn Austin continued the story from Waves of Mercy to Legacy of Mercy. It is so moving and encouraging to see God’s hand in every aspect of life. I loved the story. Thank you Lynn Austin for sharing your gift of writing.

Wonderful follow up to Waves of Mercy

The characters are multidimensional and authentic and the storyline complex as the author completes the narrative begun in Waves of Mercy. Redemption and restoration are the themes driving the story. The narrators were fantastic! I loved the different voices as they made the story so real I felt like I was really there. Though it was fiction, the encouragement to trust God in all circumstances, even those we don’t understand was a powerful reminder of God’s love for us. Well Done!
