Mercy needs to find her memories because she is in a heap of trouble. Acquitted of a crime supposedly committed during the Civil War, post-war Mercy finds herself on the side of the Union but knows that she was involved in the Confederate cause, somehow. Mercy is on a mission to find her history, by herself. Captain Elijah Hale and former slave (preteen) Isaac are determined to keep her in their protection.
In this second book of the Mercy Medallion series, readers will find the reconstruction era of the old South, bounty hunters, plantations, the new freedman economy and its injustices, the Klan, and deep-seated resentment of Northern influences.
Thankfully this book wrapped up at the end, so much better than book 1. It is supposed to be part of a trilogy. Thank you to David C. Cook publisher for providing me an advance copy to read and review in my own words.
