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.

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!

Waiting for part 3 in this uplifting series

The Christ-Likeness in several of the characters is beautiful strong...making the contrast with the struggles of our woundedness very real particularly as the characters receive healings.

A winner!

I'm going to finish listening to the last few chapters of this book very slowly so as to postpone saying goodbye to a wonderful story. Mrs. Austin has preserved her reputation as a fantastic writer of Christian fiction. This is simply one of the best books I've read/ listened to, and I've surely read hundreds of Christian novels. The narration is excellent and greatly enhances the listening experience, although I do plan to read it slowly in the near future. Be sure to read the first in the series before starting this. Thank you, Lynn Austin, and please keep writing!

Religious text; scriptural text, misleading

I was thoroughly disappointed by this book. The book started on good ground and held my attention...and then in the blink of an eye, it turned very biblical...almost bible-thumping. The protagonist became so whiny and her prayers were prayers of want, not gratitude. She acted like a victim...waiting for her god to give her her voice. Scripture quoted too frequently. I'm a spiritual person; I think the author confused spirituality with religion, and they are two distinct pathways to god. This is not a spiritual book, it is a biblical book, constantly referencing the old and new testaments. Lots of backward-thinking and primitive-thinking...

Great story

This is a great story by Lynn Austin. It should be a movie. I enjoy the reading of Anna’s character. However the gravely voice and over exaggerated pronunciations by the reader of Hatia’s character was distracting and off-putting. That reader put emphases in strange places, sometimes sounding like a first grader learning to read. Finally, effort should be made to deliver the speaker’s tags more smoothly. It is a very long story and these distractions began to detract more and more.

Part 1 and 2 so good

Lynn Austin’s writings are amazing. Between her and Francine-Rivers, I AM learning the Bible in more ways than I can count!
This last set was really good. I’ve never liked books from the old American history, usually I only like WE1&2 stories but now I enjoy a vast movie!

Sensational read

Couldn't put this down. I felt sad that it had come to an end. Great story.
