Packed Full of History

I listened to the audiobook a few weeks after I read the book. I enjoyed this Inspirational Historical Romance a second time just as much as the first. The narrator was great and I enjoyed listening to his voice. A very interesting story that’s short but packed full of history and romance. I took my time reading this book and tried to remember and enjoy each detail. The characters were multifaceted and captured me from the beginning. Mercy was such a strong person that took care of her and her father’s home while he was making his rounds preaching even though it was a land of unrest at that time. Shadrach being a scout gave us good insight to the frontier life. I love the era of the 1700s and learning how they made a living. There are adventures and dangers but I will let you read about them since this is a novella. I want you to enjoy that as I did not knowing what to expect next. If you like historical romance you will enjoy this book.
I received an audiobook copy with no obligation to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Full of history, strength and romance

Mercy In A Red Cloak by Carrie Fancett Pagels.

This book is full of historical facts from 1753. It deals with Mercy, a circuit rider’s daughter and Shad a colonial scout. Their romance develops through time and turmoil.

A well written shorter book dealing with troubles of the era: French, British and native tribes.

Great book set just after the French and Indian wa

This is such a great book. Mercy and Shad have developed a special friendship through the years and I enjoyed watching their relationship grow. I loved learning about the history following the French and Indian War. This is a period I know very little about and my interest was sparked to do a little research of my own. The audible version of this book was so easy to listen to and kept my attention. The narrator does a fantastic job.

Shad and Mercy!

I thoroughly enjoyed Bill Anciaux's narration! He brought a new depth of feeling to the story.
This is a sweet, enjoyable novella, set in a time of turmoil. Mercy is a woman who has taken care of her father and their home for the last decade, "robbing her of the opportunity of beginning her life of her own."
A longtime friend of Mercy and her father, Shad has been widowed for more than a year. He is drawn to Mercy more and more. Could she possibly have feelings for him? What kind of life could he offer her?
I loved the history here. A little bit of everything for the Mackinac area around the time Pontiac's war.
The romance between Shad and Mercy is very sweet.
As always, Carrie Fancett Pagels weaves a wonderful Mackinac tale!
