REVIEW: When Mercy Rains by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Suzanne Zimmerman, estranged from her Mennonite family, is asked to come home and help with her mom.  Trained as a nurse, Suzanne seems the perfect choice for getting her wheelchair-bound mom back on track.  However, hard feelings in the family make the trip home to Kansas challenging for Suzanne, her mom and Suzanne’s daughter Alexa.  This book provides opportunities, both missed and taken, for the family to reconcile.  There are some secrets to be revealed and some lost time to recover.  Alexa has always wondered about her Kansas-based family and hasn’t been privvy to the reasons Suzanne has stayed away.  This three-generation saga gives readers something to think about in how fast time goes and how we need to grab onto it.
