For Mercie's Sake by Sharon Srock

My review today is on the story, For Mercie's Sake. This is a short story by Sharon but it is well written, heart warming, and faith inspired. I'm not sure if I have read any of Sharon's books before but I enjoyed this one very much and I look forward to reading more of her work.

Scottlyn Rich was raped several months ago by the high school's star quarterback. Scottlyn refused to tell anyone until she found herself pregnant. The boy finally confessed but her father was adamant about Scottlyn either having an abortion or giving the child up for adoption. He would not have a product of rape in his home. Scottlyn was put in a home for unwed mother after her father threw her out of his home. The home managed to get her enrolled in a Christian School.

Widowed school teacher Diana Kensington is having a difficult time with her grief. It was just over sixteen months ago when her husband's plane fell out of the sky. Her life was over as far as she was concerned, grief consumed her. Every day she would ask "What now God?" Diana and her husband had been trying for years to have a child so when she received her new, obviously pregnant student she couldn't help but be judgmental. When she found out about the circumstances of the pregnancy, God began to deal with her.

A journey of two broken people in desperate need of hope and love and how God had a plan for them and it's was far better than either of them could ever imagine. A story of love, forgiveness, and hope. it will touch your heart.
