In A Measure of Mercy by acclaimed author Lauraine Snelling, 18-year-old Astrid Bjorklund’s opportunity for formal medical study in Chicago doesn’t arrive until shortly after her heartthrob Joshua Landseer returns to Blessing, North Dakota. They agree to exchange letters while she’s in Chicago. And, for a time, love blossoms—until the letters from Joshua stop coming. Convinced he no longer loves her, Astrid makes an impetuous and heart-wrenching decision.

I love the constant dependance on God for guidance. I know my faith is growing just listening to such great examples of how to serve God and treat others as God would have us.
I wish there was a guide to the order of the books. I have listened out of order to several and think it would have been even better in order.
As always, I love Lauraine Snelling, the only thing that I don't like is that it is hard to find what order to read her books in because even though she has 3 and 4 books in a series, they all are one great big story! So this book is a piece of the big story and I plan on continuing on so the ending didn't disappoint me as much as others. I would only read these books as a whole series and not individually. I love the books and highly recommend starting from the beginning!
This is the first book I read by this author. When I began this book, it started as if there were missing pieces to a puzzle. Then I realized this first book in this series was continued from another series, and then from another series. Personally, I don't like it when authors do this. Also, I felt the book was more fitting for a young teenager or pre-teen rather than adult fiction. Parts of the book are very very boring. The best part of the book is this audible version narrated by Stina Nielson. Stina Nielson is one of my favorite narrators. She does well distinguishing characters, etc.
I enjoyed the book. The narrating was great. I really like Stina Nielson. But it wasn't the kind of beginning of a series that made me really anxious to download the 2nd book.
