New Mercies | [Sandra Dallas]

New Mercies

Sandra Dallas, best-selling author of The Persian Pickle Club, weaves an intricate and sophisticated tale in New Mercies. Nora Bondurant is divorced— unfathomable for a woman in 1933—and has inherited a house from a dead aunt she never even knew existed. But when she travels to Mississippi to claim her inheritance, she finds her eccentric neighbors would rather help her acquire a new husband than reveal the secrets surrounding her aunt’s death.

Publisher's Summary

Sandra Dallas, best-selling author of The Persian Pickle Club, weaves an intricate and sophisticated tale in New Mercies.

Nora Bondurant is divorced— unfathomable for a woman in 1933—and has inherited a house from a dead aunt she never even knew existed. But when she travels to Mississippi to claim her inheritance, she finds her eccentric neighbors would rather help her acquire a new husband than reveal the secrets surrounding her aunt’s death.

As Nora becomes more and more enmeshed in the community and in her family’s history, she learns surprising things about the life and death of her aunt: kinship isn't always what it seems, loyalty can be as fierce as blood relations, and every day we are given new mercies to heal the pain of loss and love.

    "Loved it!"

    Engaging southern fiction/ couldn't turn it off. I highly recommend this one. I will probably listen to it again at some point.

    A reader who loves to sew, which makes Audible ideal. No special trends but always on the lookout for recommended titles. Appreciate good stories not the graphic details which seem to be the trend.

    "Couldn't put it down"

    Typical Sandra Dallas story. Just had to keep going to see what would happen. Loved the last chapter which rounded up the story but left much to the imagination, Great Read

    "Good, but not her best..."

    We loved Sandra Dallas when we discovered her with Prayers for Sale. Then Tall Grass...both exceptional in our opinion. This one was okay...we liked the unfolding of the character's secrets...but they opened up so gradually we failed to feel the "grab" we felt in the other novels. But, worth listening to. It was harder to place this in the historic timeframe for me also...
