Mercy Come Morning by Lisa Tawn Bergren (Chapter 1 Excerpt)
There are no second chances. Or are there?

Krista Mueller is in a good place. She’s got a successful career as a professor of history; she’s respected and well-liked; and she lives hundreds of miles from her hometown and the distant mother she could never please. It’s been more than a decade since Alzheimer’s disease first claimed Charlotte Mueller’s mind, but Krista has dutifully kept her mother in a first-class nursing home.

Now Charlotte is dying of heart failure and, surprised by her own emotions, Krista rushes to Taos, New Mexico, to sit at her estranged mother’s side as she slips away. Battling feelings of loss, abandonment, and relief, Krista is also unsettled by her proximity to Dane McConnell, director of the nursing home—and, once upon a time, her first love. Dane’s kind and gentle spirit—and a surprising discovery about her mother—make Krista wonder if she can at last close the distance between her and her mother … and open the part of her heart she thought was lost forever.

“A timeless tale, to be kept every day in the heart as a reminder
that forgiveness is a gift to self.”
—PATRICIA HICKMAN, author of The Pirate Queen

Mercy Come Morning is an exciting story about the women Krista Muller, whose mother has Alzheimer and is kept in a first-class nursing home for patient who has Alzheimer. Krista Mulle, the main character n the novel, is not an unique character, but she is fun to read about and as you read, makes you feel close to her as if your knew her personally.

The story line and ending was a predictable story line, without the twists you would expect in novel like this one. For example, no real miracle happen during the novel. By no real miracle I mean, during the novel her mother did not just get cured of Alzheimer. This novel would be really nice for a car trip or if you had a few spare hours wherever you are. The story is a quick and easy read.

I would recommend this story to any of my family or friends.

I received a copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group as part of their book review program. I was not required to write a positive review; the opinions expressed are my own.
