A society woman leaves her comfortable lifestyle so that she can help her daughter adjust to the arrival of twin sons in a small town where the courageous doctor teaches her about taking risks.

Wealthy and sociable Margaret Millerson has always thought of her brother’s Chicago mansion as her home. But when she receives the telephone call that her daughter has given birth to twins three weeks ahead of the expected due date, Margaret must leave her comfortable home, her family, and her friends to travel out of state. While she is helping her daughter care for the infants, Margaret becomes reacquainted with the town’s doctor, Matthew Kaldenberg.
Dr. Matthew Kaldenberg stays busy caring for the health of the citizens of his small town. His profession offers him daily practice in defeating death, his greatest enemy. During the twenty years since losing his own wife and baby in childbirth, Matthew has saved his money for the purchase of a flying machine. But when Matthew takes Margaret for flights on his biplane, he learns that his dreams of rising above the griefs and losses of his past come with a cost. He doesn’t want to lose the trust of the people he cares about most, or the chance at a relationship with Margaret.
Both Matthew and Margaret must make difficult decisions to hold on to the love they have discovered. Will Matthew’s heart recover from sorrow? Will Margaret find her true home?


Upon finding out her daughter and son in law just had twin boys, Margaret Millerson leaves the wealthy mansion of her brothers and goes to help take care of her grandsons. Surprisingly Margaret likes this small town, even thought there are no servants to do things for her. Instead, it is Margaret who gets up early to fix breakfast for everyone. She is also found cleaning house, doing laundry, taking care of two babies and she even helped Logan plant a garden. But when her time to go home rolls around, Margaret wants to stay and help. And even when another deadline to be there comes up, the good and handsome Dr. Matthew Kaldenberg finds put she’s leaving and instead, helps her find a place to stay. It seems this little quaint town of Oswell City is rubbing off on Margaret. Or could it be the handsome Dr and his love of flying planes? 

Michelle De Bruin creates a wonderful cast of characters, both living at Margaret’s brothers mansion and in the little town of Oswell City. As a reader you will grow to love this family and these characters. It was fun having the set of twin baby boys in the story and the interaction with those sweet babies. Logan was a sweetheart and especially special to Margaret. I’m mean would she plant a garden in one of her gowns for anyone else? 

And if you enjoy the early 1900’s era with the introduction to the automobile and the flying machines, you will especially be interested in this book. With the Shinny new Model T Ford and the Wright Biplane and, the good and handsome Dr  Matthew Kaldenberg flying the Biplane. It’s all very interesting and a must read if you are a fan. And if you are not so much, you are sure to find enjoy to keep your mind occupied otherwise. I encourage you to try this one out. I give Coming Home to Mercy Four Stars.
