Praise for The Secrets of Mercy
THE SECRETS OF MERCY, by Brook Blander, is an inspiring, entertaining and spellbinding book. I started it and couldn’t put it down, reading it in one long afternoon. The book has some wonderful characters, too many to mention, except for Sylvia, Julius, Alivia, Yuna… well, too many to mention. The plotting is also excellent, making many turns and twists, too many to mention, except to say that this book is a great read. Altogether, I would recommend this book to readers everywhere.
The story is alive with original characters who are full of love, sadness and rage. It is sweet as it is bitter. Set in the South just after Emancipation. This story will press on your chest, make you happy and make you cry. The characters will not leave you until days after you’ve finished reading the book. To the author, thank you for an amazing read!
This is a novel that makes the reader feel the full gamut of emotions in a seamless and comfortable way. There were times I talked out loud as I read, times I referred to certain characters in my daily conversation as though I truly knew them, and times I simply refused to put the book down. Brook Blander’s use of local color and poetically detailed descriptions bring the reader directly into the town of Mercy and into a connection with its residents. Read. This. Book. You can come back and thank me later
