Arms of Mercy By Ruth Reid

36576133Arms of Mercy

By Ruth Reid 

He will not lose her again. 

On the eve of a new year, Catherine Glick is expecting her bu of five years to propose. Instead, the unexpected arrival of an old boyfriend, Elijah, sends her life spiraling out of control. When a rash decision damages her current relationship, Catherine leaves for Florida to work in her cousin’s bakery—anything to flee the source of her shame.

Elijah Graber knows he hurt Catherine when he left their Amish district six years ago. He’s determined to explain his actions, even if it means following her to Florida. Perhaps their two-day bus trip together will provide enough time for him to make his case and win her back.

Just when Elijah is starting to tear down the walls Catherine has built, their bus skids on an icy road—and amid the mayhem and tragedy that follow, Catherine disappears. Elijah’s friends urge him to prepare for the worst, but Elijah holds on to his hope in God and refuses to give up his search for Catherine. With supernatural nudging from the most unexpected places, Elijah sets out to find the love he once lost—no matter the cost.

My Thoughts:

Arms of Mercy is the second book in the Amish Mercy series by Ruth Reid. Ms. Reid writes amazing characters into each of her stories. I loved how the research behind this story was so thorough because it kept me in the story and turning the pages.  Not only are the characters well written, but so is the plot. Between a love story and a mystery, this book turns the page all on its own. 

Get ready to spend the rest of your day starting and finishing this book because you won't be able to put it down. I loved this book, just like I enjoyed Abiding Mercy. This one doesn't compare in my mind. If you have never read Amish Fiction before, step out of your comfort zone and give them a try, you will love them.
