{GIVEAWAY!} "Shades of Mercy" by A. Lustrea & C. Rivadeneira

{First post of 2014! Whoo-hoo!}

About this book:

It's 1954 and the world-even the far Northwoods of Maine-is about to change. But that change can't happen soon enough for fourteen-year-old Mercy Millar. Long tired of being the "son" her father never had, Mercy's ready for the world to embrace her as the young woman she is-as well as embrace the forbidden love she feels.

 When childhood playmates grow up and fall in love, the whole community celebrates. But in the case of Mercy and Mick, there would be no celebration. Instead their relationship must stay hidden. Good girls do not date young men from the Maliseet tribe. At least, not in Watsonville, Maine. When racial tensions escalate and Mick is thrown in jail under suspicion of murder, Mercy nearly loses all hope-in love, in her father, and in God himself.”

 Series: ‘A Maine Chronicle’, book #1

Spiritual Content- Micah 6:8, Luke 4:14-2; Mercy & her family do many prayers; Mercy witness to some of her Maliseet friends

Negative Content- a ‘what the heck’, a few ‘heck’s, some people are rude to the Malissets, just because they want them gone.

Sexual Content- Kisses, no detail; Some folks think a girl is with child, but she’s not.

-Mercy Millar
                                       P.O.V. of Mercy (With Grandma Mercy at the beginning & end)
                                                       Set in Present time & 1954       257 pages


‘Shades of Mercy’ is almost like ‘Romeo & Juilet’; but it’s not the parents that reject the relationship between their young-uns, it’s some of town people. Though it had spoilers in the front- before we even got into the book- I really liked it! And Thanks to the Publisher (Moody Publishers) we have THREE brand-new copies of "Shades of Mercy" to Giveaway! :D
