ABOUT THE BOOK

At the war’s end, a young woman suffers an accident that leaves her unconscious and alone. Waking with amnesia, she takes the name Mercy and wants more than anything to find out the truth of her past. But then a handsome stranger arrives, who may hold the key to everything she has forgotten. What he knows could devastate her future, and even end her life.
Written by two proven storytellers, Traces of Mercy is perfect for anyone who loves historical fiction, prairie-based tales, or just a good romance.

MY THOUGHTS-I have always enjoyed reading the books written by Michael Landon Jr so I was expecting this one to be just as good. I had not read any books by the other author, Cindy Kelley but I figured I would give it a try anyways:) Boy am I glad I did! The writing was superb and well done. I couldn't tell there were two different authors! It had a good amount of romance but in a sweet way. Definitely a hit for any fan of historical fiction. Will there be another one? Hopefully!
