Legacy of Mercy (Waves of Mercy #2) by Lynn Austin

(Waves of Mercy #2)

This book does not disappoint! This book was amazing! I haven’t read many historical books in first person, but I have read several other books by Lynn Austin and knew this would be great. The two main characters are Geesje and Anna. Geesje lives in Holland MI. I love that this book was written right back in my yard. It made the book come alive. Anna is lives in Chicago, Il and is trying to find out more about her parents as her wedding approaches. 
I love how Lynn Austin puts truth within her story and how Anna wants to put her faith in God. Anna wants to follow Him well and when she has to make difficult choices and sacrifices, she is willing to do so. Her humble attitude is refreshing for someone who is young.  
This book overall has a great message and I don't want to spoil too much, but I love how we get to see the story from Anna and Gessie.  I loved this book and cannot wait for books in this series because I feel that the story isn't over. I read this book in two sitting because I could not put it down. Legacy of Mercy is remarkable! I highly recommend reading the first book in this series. I give this book 5/5 stars.

About the Author:
Lynn AustinFor many years, Lynn Austin nurtured a desire to write but frequent travels and the demands of her growing family postponed her career. When her husband's work took Lynn to Bogota, Colombia, for two years, she used the B.A. she'd earned at Southern Connecticut State University to become a teacher. After returning to the U.S., the Austins moved to Anderson, Indiana, Thunder Bay, Ontario, and later to Winnipeg, Manitoba.

It was during the long Canadian winters at home with her children that Lynn made progress on her dream to write, carving out a few hours of writing time each day while her children napped. Lynn credits her early experience of learning to write amid the chaos of family life for her ability to be a productive writer while making sure her family remains her top priority.

Extended family is also very important to Austin, and it was a lively discussion between Lynn, her mother, grandmother (age 98), and daughter concerning the change in women's roles through the generations that sparked the inspiration for her novel Eve's Daughters.
