Legacy of Mercy

Book Cover: Legacy of Mercy

Having returned to Chicago, young socialite Anna Nicholson can't seem to focus on her upcoming marriage. The new information she's learned about her birth mother continues to pull at her, and she hires Pinkerton detectives to help her find the truth. But as she meets people who once knew her mother and hears stories about the past, Anna soon discovers that some secrets are better left hidden.

At the same time, unflattering stories about Anna are leaked by someone who would love to see her disgraced and her engagement broken. And as Anna tries to share her faith with her society friends, she understands that her choice to seek God's purpose for her life isn't as simple as she had hoped.

When things are at their darkest, Anna knows she can turn to her grandmother, Geesje de Jonge, back in Holland, Michigan. Geesje's been helping new Dutch immigrants, including a teen with a haunted past, adjust to America. She only hopes that her wisdom can help all these young people through the turmoil they face.

  1. Your books just keep getting better and better! After reading them I feel totally refreshed and know that I am loved and special in the eyes of our Lord . Your books are a true inspiration ❤️ Keep up the great work and may you and your family have a blessed holiday season

  2. Am currently reading the second book in the “Mercy” series, and am enjoying them very much. However I noticed an error on page 170, when Vera is recounting the story of her friendship with Christina, Anna’s birth-mother. On the 7th line it reads”Anna and I did all sorts of jobs…” I think the Anna should be Christina. Was this never caught by editors?
    Regards, Thea
    PS Keep up the excellent work! I love your books!

  3. I loved your book,”Legacy of Mercy” and read it in 2 days. It was the 1st of your novels that I’ve read and loved everything about it. We pass Holland Mich when we vacation and love the area.
    I’ve passed the book title and your name on to several of my friends and relatives already. Such a beautiful Christian novel.

    I found it in the new book section of our library and it was large print which I prefer. Having my 74th birthday next Friday and so Thankful for all.

    I’ll look up other books written by you and keep up sharing the faith and God’s word.

    Blessings, Joanne

  4. I sincerely hope that maybe someday you will continue the story of Geesje, Anneke & Derk. I recently found your books & have loved all of them!! I had read Waves of Mercy & just finished Legacy of Mercy and find it so hard to let go of the characters. I truly hope that the Lord will lead you to tell us about Derk & Anna’s life with Geesje at his first church.

    I also loved the Refiner’s Fire series. I read Candle in the Darkness two times in a row—finished it one day & started reading it again the next!! I can honestly say I have never done that with any other book!! It truly felt like I was living history! I can’t imagine the amount of research that went into them. I was always appalled by the thought of slavery but this book took it to a whole new level. And the fact that I have lived in West Virginia all my life & my daughter now lives near Fredericksburg, Virginia gave me a very real perspective. More of these books would also be greatly appreciated.

    God has blessed you with a tremendous gift & I pray that you continue to give Him the glory! Thank you for sharing your gift with us!!

      This is exactly what I just popped on here to say, so I guess I will just say, “Ditto!”
