"The Edge of Mercy" blog tour!


Welcome to the Blog Tour and Giveaway for The Edge of Mercy by Heidi Chiavaroli, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Edge of Mercy final large fileTitle: The Edge of Mercy 
Author: Heidi Chiavaroli 
Publisher: Hope Creek Publishers 
Genre: Split Time/Women's Fiction 
Release Date: April 9, 2019

Two women, three hundred years apart, must face the devastation of all they hold dear...

Suspecting her husband is having an affair, Sarah Rodrigues fights to appear unbroken while attempting to salvage her family. Though distracted by her own troubles, Sarah is summoned to an elderly friend’s deathbed for an unusual request—find a long-lost daughter and relay a centuries-old family story.

Determined not to fail her friend, Sarah pieces together the story of her neighbor’s ancestor, Elizabeth Baker, a young colonist forced into an unwanted betrothal but drawn to a man forbidden by society.

While Sarah’s family teeters on the edge of collapse, her world is further shaken by the interest of a caring doctor and a terrible accident that threatens a life more precious than her own.

Inspired by the unconditional love she uncovers in Elizabeth’s story, Sarah strives to forgive those who’ve wounded her soul. But when light shines on the dark secrets of her neighbor’s past and the full extent of her husband’s sins, will looking to a power greater than herself rekindle lost hope?

My Review:
"The Edge of Mercy" is a book that will appeal to so many as it is a current day story as well as a historical one all woven together.  Sarah is struggling to hold her family together as a whole unit in the midst of doubts and suspected betrayal.  While dealing with this, she is asked to help a friend who is desperate for a task to be taken care of for her before she passes.  Sarah dives into Elizabeth's story and life, a woman who lived a few centuries ago and who was dealing with struggles of her own.  The historical details just bring Elizabeth's story to live and it was felt as if I were transported back in time with the rift between the settlers and natives.  Sarah was so easy to feel a connection with as well and her character came to live in the pages.  This is an inspiring story of hope after heartache and suffering and God's help through it all.
