cherished mercy by tracie peterson



Mercy Flanagan survived the Whitman Massacre as a child, and now her heart's cry is for peace between the native peoples and the white settlers inhabiting Oregon Territory. Unfortunately, most of the settlers would rather the tribes were removed from the land completely, one way or the other, and tensions are rising. Mercy has grown tired of Oregon City and feels that she has a larger purpose in life, so when she learns that family friend Eletta Browning is pregnant, she travels south to the Rogue River Valley to help. 
At the Rogue River Mission, Mercy meets Eletta's brother-in-law, Adam, who has suffered a broken engagement. Mercy finds him attractive, but Adam seems determined to focus on ministering to the local tribes and keeps Mercy at arm's length. 
When tragedy strikes and tensions in the territory reach the boiling point, Mercy is pushed to the limit of her strength. She and Adam must rely on their firm faith in God in order to make it out alive. 


So far, this has got to be my favorite series by Tracie Peterson. 
It is fast paced and leaves you wanting for more. It will keep you turing the pages way past midnight for sure!!
Mercy has a great adventure waiting ahead of her. I felt like I was on one with her. 
There were just so many things that were exciting happening that I could hardly keep up!! 
I'm glad she kept Grace and Hope and their families in the story too!!! I couldn't imagine having that many children to raise!! 
I enjoyed the Indians too. Even though they're human just like us, their lifestyles might be just a little different. I could put myself in their camp and imagine making friends with them. 
However; I didn't like the way they were treated. Fear is the white man's greatest enemy. It grieves me that they were murdered for no reason at all!! 
It what is ruling our world today (Fear) and hate. It will never go away as long as Satan is around. 
Forgiveness, leadership, missionary are at work in this beautifully written story.
Thank you Tacie for another wonderful story!! I can't wait to read the next series!!
I received this book for free. All words are my own opinion and thank you Bethany house for letting me read and review your books!!
