‘Hidden Mercies’–a story of pain and redemption

Hidden MercyClaire Shetler was preparing for her wedding day when news of her fiancé’s accidental death changes her life forever.  Unable to live with his father’s grief and anger after accidentally killing his brother, Tom Miller joins the Marines.  Twenty-seven years later, he returns to find Claire is an Amish widow raising her brother’s children and discovers that his brother had a son raised by Claire and her late husband.

Serena B. Miller’s “Hidden Mercies” is a heart-tugging story that fills you with hope.  I am not a fan of Amish fiction, but this one was definitely different.  It was a story of heartbreak, but it was also a story of how God works in our lives.  When something undesirable happens, God has a plan of redemption.

Sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself.  Tom Miller must learn to forgive himself in order to regain the relationships he left behind.  If so, the pain of the past can bring forth hope for the future.
