Echos of mercy Review

Here's another review for one of Kim Vogel Sawyer's amazing books!

"For everything that is hidden or secret will eventually be brought to light and made plain to all." Luke 8:17

This books has a lot to do with secrets and lies, but it's main bases is the well-fair of children and how it can effect not only their lives but the lives of others. Caroline Lang is and Investigator in 1904, going undercover into work environment to see how their workers are treated, mostly their child workers. When a friend of her boss and adoptive father dies from falling down an elevator shaft in the middle of an investigation he asks Caroline to see if it was in truth in accident or did someone push their co worker down to his death. The time elapsing between getting to Sinclair and getting the job at the world famous Dinsmore factory a lot happened to Caroline, and even though she got the job she felt horrible for those who didn't and truly needed the job. Interviews today are much different, but how often do we give thought to the others who try out for the exact same job? This little piece of Caroline gave me much to think about and taught me that we should offer prayers for those who did not make the cut. Things are hard in this economy, and they are getting worse by the day, so I pray things will change for the better.

"Fathers, don't aggravate your children. If you do, they will become discouraged and quit trying." Colossians 3:21

One of the girls applying for the job that had been given to Caroline managed to find herself in trouble, with little food and the treat of her father beating her Letta tried to steal some crackers from a small store, luckily Caroline was there to pay for the mistake. This encounter brought Letta and her two younger brothers into her life, who Caroline became determined to help put through school. The children's father was not a kind man, and their mother leaving them and taking all their money when she did not help them one bit, a testimony to the need of having both parents in your life. Letta and her brothers showed how it feels to be unloved and unwanted. We need to care for those who have no family to call their own, who don't have parents to teach them right from wrong, show them the love Jesus Christ has shown them!

"For everything that is hidden or secret will eventually be brought to light and made plain to all." Luke 8:17

Every secret is reviled, nothing can be hidden from God, not any dark corner or room can shield your actions from Him. Caroline, Oliver, Letta, and few other people's secrets are revealed in the light of God, just as he planned it. I will not give away any more, but I will say Kim Vogel Sawyer has done in again with this trilling, adventurous, romantic novel. I can wait for the next one!

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.
