|Mercy Like Sunlight: A Novella – eBook
By Liz Curtis Higgs / WaterBrook PressMary Margaret Delaney hides in the shadows, her arms scarred, her heart wounded by grief and weighed down with regret. Adrift on the streets of Chicago, she is surrounded by strangers and hounded by demons, both real and imagined. Her neighbors in Lincoln Park call her Mad Mary-until a fearless young pastor dares to call Mary his friend.
I have loved pretty much everything that Liz Curtis Higgs has written. Both fiction and non-fiction. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors. She has a way of writing that draws you into the story and you feel a part of it. This novella was no different. Based on the character from the Bible of Mary Magdalene, Mary Margaret has to deal with her own demons.
As her story develops and you see the parallels between these two distinct women you see how Mary Margaret opens up her heart to God and is healed. I have to admit that as her story progresses my heart feels for her. As the revelation of Jesus resurrection and the fact that as Christian’s death is not the end comes to her she desires to share this with her friends. I find myself rejoicing with her as God uses her to minister to the people around her.
Since this is a novella it’s a quick read but once you start you will not want to put this one down. This is a great book to add to your summer reading list and one I will recommend to many friends. Right now you can purchase this through Christianbook.com as an eBook for $3.99.
