Book Description:

“Suddenly angelic beings of light appeared. They said I was at a crossroad, and it was here where I had to make a choice . . .”

In 2022, forty-two-year-old Dr. Stormy Hera, a music professor at the University of Victoria, is serving a manslaughter sentence at Sunnydale Forensic Hospital in British Columbia.

Although she can’t recall committing the crime, she feels strongly that she did the right thing. In the hopes of jogging her memory and healing her soul, Stormy is tasked with writing her autobiography as part of her rehabilitation.

​Spanning the 1940s to 2026, and set in the Saskatchewan prairies, Olympia, Greece, and Canada’s West Coast, For Love and Mercy follows the lives of free-spirited Evangeline, and Stormy herself—including a near-death experience that changes everything.

This interesting and descriptive story takes place in the early 1940’s through to 2026, and is set in several different areas, the Saskatchewan prairies, Olympia, Greece, and Canada’s West Coast. I really enjoyed traveling with the characters to each of these beautiful places. For Love and Mercy is a powerful story that will tug at my heart for a very long time.

I don’t know why but when I saw this book cover, I didn’t think so much about this being a family book. Don’t get me wrong the cover is stunning, a cover that I would go for first in a bookstore. For Love and Mercy is such a beautifully written story, a story that is so realistic it seems almost impossible that it’s fiction. With all of the twists and turns, it is surprising where the story takes us at times. Writing about all of the ups and downs, the issues of the human life isn’t always an easy task. Through her unique and realistic characters, Ms. Deringer takes readers through lots of different emotions, sometimes it was difficult for me to keep reading, other times I couldn’t put the book down. There was some hide humor sprinkled through that was enjoyable. All in all this is a really good read. I give For Love and Mercy Five Stars. This is a book that everyone should read. It is really that good!!
