Diana Kensingston’s husband recently died in a plane crash, and they’d never been able to have children. Her grief consumes her, and she finds herself turning bitter. When Scottlyn is transferred to her history class, Diana is judgmental at first. However, as she sees how hard Scottlyn is trying to do the right thing and how much she has working against her, her heart goes out. Is God leading her down paths she never expected?
I found only two minor errors. “Summersault” was used for “somersault” and “is” for “it.“ This is a wonderful book full of heart and emotions. It’s short, but there’s more of Diana and Scottlyn’s story to come in the other books in the series, so you'll need to have the next two to finish, but I knew that to start with
My favorite characters that Srock introduces us to is Diana. She's a widowed Christian school teacher who can't get past the grief of losing her beloved husband in a plane crash. Her life is counting the days since he walked out the door for a quick trip away from her. That heartbreak has taken over her every breathing moment...she could hardly eat, let alone sleep with out the thought of missing her beloved. As a teacher in a Christian School she is shocked when the principal brings in a new student that is merely sixteen years old and five months pregnant. After years of being unable to have children with her husband and now with no husband to even dream that dream with...she sees this girl in her class and judges her before hearing anything about the circumstances. Suddenly when Diana does find the cause...rape...for sweet Scottlyn's pregnancy AND the fact that her father wanted her to dispose of the baby before giving it a chance at life AND because Scottlyn would not abort her baby, he tossed her out of his home without another thought. Can Diana find it in herself to get past the deep grief she has for the loss of her husband and find a way to help and support this teen with so much upon her and no where to go? Can she share with her the only hope that anyone needs...Jesus dying on the cross for her sins and rising again to give even Scottlyn the opportunity to have hope? Can this all happen for Mercies Sake? A wonderful read full of hope and promise!
Scottlyn Rich was raped several months ago by the high school's star quarterback. Scottlyn refused to tell anyone until she found herself pregnant. The boy finally confessed but her father was adamant about Scottlyn either having an abortion or giving the child up for adoption. He would not have a product of rape in his home. Scottlyn was put in a home for unwed mother after her father threw her out of his home. The home managed to get her enrolled in a Christian School.
Widowed school teacher Diana Kensington is having a difficult time with her grief. It was just over sixteen months ago when her husband's plane fell out of the sky. Her life was over as far as she was concerned, grief consumed her. Every day she would ask "What now God?" Diana and her husband had been trying for years to have a child so when she received her new, obviously pregnant student she couldn't help but be judgmental. When she found out about the circumstances of the pregnancy, God began to deal with her.
A journey of two broken people in desperate need of hope and love and how God had a plan for them and it's was far better than either of them could ever imagine. A story of love, forgiveness, and hope. it will touch your heart.
By Sharon Srock
Just finished reading For Mercies’ Sake by Sharon Srock. What a marvelous story. One of the best I have read. A very touching and moving story you won’t forget. A book every Christian should read, or everyone for that matter. A young lady raped, Scottlyn, became pregnant, her father tried to talk her into aborting, and she wouldn’t, nor would she consider adopting. Her father disowned her. She found a shelter that had others like her. She had missed only one week of school, so enrolled in another school. Will stop there, but this was a great beginning for Scottlyn. So much happens throughout the story. I know you won’t be sorry if you read this
