Mercy Redeemed by Kimm Reid: Book Review

I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review.  Please see below for additional disclaimers.

How Much is it?
Mercy Redeemed can be purchased for $14.20 on Amazon, here.  It is also available on Kindle.

What's it about?
"Mercy Redeemed is a love story, yet, a story of a tragic past that doesn't want to let its young victim go. We find the main character has brought the ghosts of her past, ghosts that she quite literally sees with her eyes, into her present. These ghosts seem to want to bring only destruction to Mercy and nearly succeed in doing so. It is only when young Mercy finds out the truth about her tragic past that she is able to find the strength to fight-and overcome-the demons that seek to torment her to-quite literally-death.

With layers of tragedy including being molested at a young age, her father going to prison, and marrying an exessivly abusive man with demons of his own, Mercy finds herself in a trap that is closing down on her. With no possible way for her to pull out of the trap before it consumes her life, she searches for death. It's the only way of escape, isn't it?

Mercy Redeemed has twist and turn, pulling and tangling the heartstrings of the reader into a web of emotion. Pulling the reader so deep into the life of Mercy brings them into memories of their own, which only causes the hope they have for Mercy to burn hotter the more they read.

Based loosely on a true story, Mercy Redeemed is magnetic. Readers are unable to put this book down because what they see in Mercy, they see in themselves making it personal."

My Rating: 4 Stars

I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review.  Let's start off talking about the cover.  This is so haunting, and honestly I was not sure if this would be for me as I normally like cute contemporary romances.  I still wanted to give this a try.  I am glad I picked it up.  I read it in one sitting.

This is a very deep and intense read.  It starts off with a women paying off debts of her husband with men.  It also gives you a glimpse into the past of her husband which involved Foster Care.  This will cause you to have all sorts of emotions, and they will start from chapter one.  This does deal with some deep issues including an abusive marriage, the fear of abonnement, and sexual abuse.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story.  The writing was ok, but I enjoyed the plot and the characters.
