George Aaron Firebrook has a lengthy list of those in Teaville with whom he feels led to make restitution; Mercy McClain being at the top of the list. Seeing her in a school board meeting, with his very future in her hands, wasn't exactly how he would have written the script.
Mercy McClain is stunned to encounter "Aaron" Firebrook as a candidate for their high school math instructor. He had been the meanest boy in town; taunting and teasing her for days on end, his cruelty towards others practically legendary. Sure, he had grown a beard, changed his name, and put on a guise of kindness, but she could not imagine trusting him with the children of Teaville, Kansas; could she?
Instead of easily avoiding Aaron while the school board interviews other potential teachers, Mercy finds Aaron employed by Nicholas Lowe as a gardener for the very orphanage where Mercy lives and works with her brother and sister-in-law. As the weeks progress and Mercy has a close up view of the older and wiser version of Aaron Firebrook, everything that she supposed to be true is held in question, while everything that was supposed to be in question appears to be true. But there are other more pressing issues to confront than Aaron Firebrook's code of conduct; others are struggling to accept that lives can be changed from the inside out, with the power and grace of the Holy Spirit.
A lovely story with deep spiritual undertones.
There wasn’t much to the characters in the book although Mercy seemed to have been the only interesting one and the only one with personality. The chemistry with Aaron and Mercy isn’t that great and as you progress throughout the novel it’s always back and forth with them. You feel like you’re watching a never ending tennis match between these two where they’re not doing anything to gain advantage in the game. And well, to be frank it’s pretty dry.
Aaron seemed like an all right character to read about, a guy out for redemption and feels bad for his past treatment of a lot of people (he was the town bully so to speak) and although it was nice to see part of his development and him trying to redeem himself it didn’t quite work out as I had hoped, he ended up being mopey, weepy but to the point where you have to wonder if he’s suddenly become emo. True, he’s had some pretty awful things done to him in the past but his constant mood changes from feeling good about changing, to moping on past regrets got old pretty fast, and this contributed more to the never ending tennis match I mentioned in the previous paragraph.
The secondary characters surrounding our main ones have each their own issues and problems and although Jimmy’s story was a good one, it just wasn’t enough to give this book justice. The plot was slow moving and dry with minor events happening in which it doesn’t make much of a difference to the story. Sad to say this book just didn’t quite cut it for me.
