Abiding Mercy: Review by Susan Scott Ferrell

Abiding Mercy – A Serious Page-Turner!

When I saw the cover for Ruth Reid’s latest release, Abiding Mercy, I was giddy. Reid knows how to tell a story and I could not wait to see where she was taking her readers with her new Amish Mercies series.

Abiding Mercy follows the life of Faith Pinkham. Faith is a dutiful 16-year-old maedel. She wants nothing more than to be baptized and be a full member of her Amish community. She works hard at her family’s restaurant – even though she and her sister Olivia are less than bosom buddies. And she adores her friend Gideon – who is taken with Olivia. But when a newspaper runs an article about a missing child – kidnapped 15 years earlier – Faith’s world becomes less than predictable.

I was given Abiding Mercy in exchange for my honest review. It was terrific and I couldn’t flip through the pages fast enough. I was thoroughly invested in every character Reid brought to the pages. The ending was a bit rushed, but the novel is a serious page-turner. Grab your copy today!


Susan Ferrell and her husband make their home in the Atlanta Metro area. Although Susan struggles with chronic migraine headaches, she stays very busy as a stay-at-home mom to one very precocious little girl. While catching her breath, she feeds her Amishaholic tendencies by reading vast amounts of Amish literature!
