Arms of Mercy by Ruth Reid



On the eve of a new year, Catherine Glick is expecting her bu of five years to propose. Instead, the unexpected arrival of an old boyfriend, Elijah, sends her life spiraling out of control. When a rash decision damages her current relationship, Catherine leaves for Florida to work in her cousin’s bakery—anything to flee the source of her shame.

Elijah Graber knows he hurt Catherine when he left their Amish district six years ago. He’s determined to explain his actions, even if it means following her to Florida. Perhaps their two-day bus trip together will provide enough time for him to make his case and win her back.

Just when Elijah is starting to tear down the walls Catherine has built, their bus skids on an icy road—and amid the mayhem and tragedy that follow, Catherine disappears. Elijah’s friends urge him to prepare for the worst, but Elijah holds on to his hope in God and refuses to give up his search for Catherine. With supernatural nudging from the most unexpected places, Elijah sets out to find the love he once lost—no matter the cost. 


I  was delighted to be invited to read this awesome new novel by Ruth Reid.
I really liked this book! 
However;  Abiding Mercy will remain my favorite.
The only thing I didn't really like about the book was that I thought there were some scenes that were too drawn out. In other words I thought that Ruth focused on too much of one thing.
Elijah and Catherine are great people. I thought they were very brave!!
In light of all that has happened throughout this story I think I'd be afraid to travel again if I were them!!
As a believer,  I think that it was wonderful how Ruth added the Angel. I'll never be uncomfortable with a guardian angel!! Where would we be without them?
I liked how she wrote that it was how people were too full of themselves to really "see", what was in front of them.
Even tho I really couldn't get into the 2nd half I still give this book 5 stars because I like Ruth's style of writing and we'll thought out characters. 
Some places in this book will make you cry and hold your breath because you'll want to see what happened to Elijah and Catherine. 
I received this book for free. All opinions are my own


Ruth Reid is a CBA and ECPA best-selling author of the Heaven on Earth series. She's a full-time pharmacist who resides in Florida with her husband and three children
