Synopsis of Streams of Mercy by Laura Snelling: “Anji Baard Moen, a recent widow, returns from Norway with her children. She quickly settles back into life in Blessing, teaching Norwegian history in the high school and writing articles for the Blessing Gazette. When tragedy strikes, Anji steps in to run the newspaper and soon finds a kindred spirit in the widower who owns the printing press. As they spend time together, Anji wonders if there’s something more than friendship growing between them.”
Streams of Mercy was a captivating book. Part of the story focuses on a disease epidemic, and it reminded me of a suspenseful Little House on the Prairie episode. I enjoyed the North Dakota setting, as well as the Christian lens through which Snelling writes. The book deals with serious and tragic elements, but it has an underlying theme of positivity. There is something about Streams of Mercy’s dialogue and description that instantly drew me into the story.
