Review: Cherished Mercy

34020172 Cherished Mercy by Tracie Peterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 After surviving the Whitman Massacre as a child, Mercy still prays for peace between the native peoples and the white settlers of Oregon Territory. Longing for purpose, she travels to another mission to help a friend. There she meets Adam, a handsome young minister. When tragedy strikes yet again, Mercy and Adam must rely on their faith to make it out alive.

While I haven't read the other books in this series, I found it easy to follow along with the events with this one. I wasn't sure I would enjoy this, as I'm picky about this genre. That said, I really enjoyed this one! I loved reading Mercy's tragic story, and her sense of purpose. Her quest for peace leads her to Adam, who she becomes romantically involved with. I normally don't like romance as a genre, but the rest of the story made this one an interesting read. I wasn't crazy about how race was portrayed as 'sides' in this story, but I understand the reasoning was was able to overlook it after hearing Mercy's story.
