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.

What I Loved...


What I Liked...

The end had potential and I am hoping that the next book can make up for this book. Towards the end it picked up and I will read the next one just out of curiosity.


I rated this book a generous 3 stars because of the ending. I have to say that I do not like the main character Mercy. It is hard to like a book if you just don't like the main character. 

The military Sgt,  is about the only bright light in this book and it's no coincidence that when he becomes a staple in the story (the end) that the book gets interesting.
