Publisher's summary

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.

Stalled

The story was interesting to a point. However, it felt like the story should have had a sequel instead of going on and on. The first book was better.

AWESOME book !!!

This was one of the best Amish books I have listened to. So many twists and turns, you really feel like you are there. She is such a good writer and I have really enjoyed all her books. I hate it when they end.

Twists and turns



I really enjoyed arms of mercy. The story carried me along with all the different ways it changed. I didn’t want it to end. But it ended perfectly. The reader was very good also

Wonderful

Such a surprisingly exciting and suspenseful book! Loving and kind I love learning of the Amish culture and their total faith in God's teachings. But the way it is brought about in this book means even more! It's not simply an Amish love story but a story of love, endurance, belonging, and the will of a man in love who never gives up.

Excellent Plot

Many Amish stories have a weak plot and become expected. Arms of Mercy engages the reader throughout the entire book. Catherine and Elijah tumble into a life of trauma, however love sustains them. Not just romance, although Elijah’s delightful personality is so engaging, the love of God for his children soaks through the pages andI to the readers soul.

VERY LONG & BORING SECOND HALF

Was really enjoying this audio book up to the bus crash. Then the book CRASHED as the author seem to have COMPLETELY LOST THE PLOT. And that really spoiled my enjoyment and had to return it for a refund.
