Fall Reads: Mercy Triumphs


New Hope Pub.. 254 pages; Blog Tour; Buy Link
I meant to have this posted on Thursday (Sept. 7th, which was my 36th birthday), but I've been sick with a cold sore, so I'm just now getting around to writing the review for Mercy Triumps by author Jana Kelly. The novel is final installment of the trilogy that began with Side by Side and Door to Freedom.

I was well aware the novel was the final installment of a thrilogy when I signed up to review it. For some odd reason, I thought I had read the other books in the series, but I'm pretty sure I have never read them. Anyhow, I began reading Mercy Triumphs with no knowledge of what occured in the first two books.

Inspired by true events, Mercy Triumps takes on the subject of modern-day persuction of Christians and what life is like for religous refugees.

The novel centers on three different women - Mia, a wife and mother of three; Halimah, a new Christian who is undercover and on the run; and Rania, Halimah's younger sister. All of them are former Muslims who are forced to live in exile outside Sudan, where they are in the constant presence of oppression and each one's faith is challenged.

Final Thoughts: At around 250 pages, the book was a quick read for me. Though I haven't read the previous novels, I had no trouble figuring out who was who and what was what. However, I do want to read the first two books sometime in the near future.

Overall, I enjoyed reading Mercy Triumphs. I thought the book was well-written, the charactes were interesting, and the descriptions throughout the book were good.
