Book description: "Caroline Lang goes undercover in the Sinclair, Kansas, Dinsmore Chocolate Factory, driven by the desire to spare children the drudgery of laboring long hours rather than pursuing an education. She believes that this mission is God's calling for her life. Oliver Dinsmore is proud of his factory's age-level for employment. Offering youngsters an opportunity to earn a wage, stay off the streets, and learn a skill that will benefit them in adulthood solves many of society's problems, in his own opinion. When Caroline and Oliver-who are both hiding their true identities-cross paths, they are forced to examine one another's point of view. Can either of them emerge triumphant in this battle of wills when the truth is revealed?"
My review: Echoes of Mercy is another book that kept me up reading late at night. The author, Kim Vogel Sawyer, weaves an intriguing tale that keeps the reader guessing. I felt like I was living the story right along with Carrie and Oliver. There was plenty of romance and mystery, and the sub-plots did not detract from the rest of the story. The characters were real, and I was drawn into their lives as I read. I always appreciate christian novels that give a clear presentation of some aspect of the christian life. This book did exactly that. Faith and prayer were a vital aspect of this story. I enjoy reading books by this author and I think that Echoes of Mercy is one of my favorites. I look forward to a sequel if the author chooses to write one. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Waterbrook Press in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
