Endless Mercy by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse has Madysen Powell feeling angry towards her father. All these years the three girls thought he was dead. Now he shows up looking to reconnect with them and he is asking for forgiveness. Madysen loves her sheep and is looking forward to the expansion of the cheese business. However, Madysen dreams of singing in concert halls around the world. When a man shows up in town who can offer her this opportunity will Madysen leave Nome or will she pick the man a little closer to home? I thought Endless Mercy was a well-written novel with developed characters. While the story focuses on Madysen, we get to catch up with the other two sisters. Havyn is happily married while Whitney is busy training her sled dogs. The grandfather is recovering, and the girlsÃ¢â?¬â?¢ father has arrived in town. Judas Reynolds has not given up on finding leverage on the Powell family. I thought the authorsÃ¢â?¬â?¢ captured the time period and the location of Nome, Alaska. I enjoyed the descriptions of the town, the sistersÃ¢â?¬â?¢ performances, the farm, and the process of making cheese. I liked seeing Madysen grow as an individual. Madysen must decide whether to pursue her singing ambitions or the path the Lord has set for her. Mercy, grace, and forgiveness are the main themes in Endless Mercy. I like how faith and God are incorporated into the story. I thought Endless Mercy was a well-balanced novel. Endless Mercy is the 2nd book in The Treasures of Nome series. Endless Mercy can be read as a standalone, however, I recommend reading both books (in order) in this engaging historical series. I am looking forward to reading the WhitneyÃ¢â?¬â?¢s story in the final installment in The Treasures of Nome series.
