Publisher's Summary

Having returned to Chicago, young socialite Anna Nicholson can't seem to focus on her upcoming marriage. The new information she's learned about her birth mother continues to pull at her, and she hires Pinkerton detectives to help her find the truth. But as she meets people who once knew her mother and hears stories about the past, Anna soon discovers that some secrets are better left hidden.

At the same time, unflattering stories about Anna are leaked by someone who would love to see her disgraced and her engagement broken. And as Anna tries to share her faith with her society friends, she understands that her choice to seek God's purpose for her life isn't as simple as she had hoped.

When things are at their darkest, Anna knows she can turn to her grandmother, Geesje de Jonge, back in Holland, Michigan. Geesje's been helping new Dutch immigrants, including a teen with a haunted past, adjust to America. She only hopes that her wisdom can help all these young people through the turmoil they face.

Wonderful Story.

Loved this story! It kept you interested from the start and I began to feel as though the characters were real.

Character doesn't have a backbone

I struggled to finish as I lost patience with the main character not following her heart. The back story was very good, however, and I loved when the ending finally came... It just frustrated me that she couldn't make her opinion known.

Great read

All of Lynn Austin’s books have interwoven threads of people and story lines. This was not a disappointment. The narration was much better than the last in the series.

Boring and political

I usually like Lynn Austin’s books, But I found this one boring. And then when she started to bring politics into it, I had had enough! Politics is everywhere and I don’t need it in my recreational reading! Causes are fine, but naming political parties and taking sides is not.

Love this one as good as the first one

The second book in the series will delight you just as the first one did. I love the way it shows you God's love but also things don't always turn out as we think they should.

Legacy of Mercy

Lynn Austin is the most gifted writer I have ever read!! This book was no exception!! The narrating , every voice was perfectly matched to the character! From beginning to end the story held me captive as I entered into the places and lives of the people she created !!! I have purchased all of Lynn books to give as presents to my friends for Christmas and birthdays ! I want them to be swept away into another time and place as I have been through Lynn Austin !

Legacy of Mercy

I listened to this one
First not knowing it was a sequel. Fell in love with the characters, and the way they were developed. I listened to the 1st book, “Waves of Mercy”, after Legacy of Mercy, and was just as delighted with it! I reread or re-listen to her books over and over and
discover something new each time. She never disappoints!! Very well done!
