    5. Beautiful story of overcoming the shame of past sin, a story of forgiveness from God, for others, and ultimately for ourselves, a story about love unconditional, resilient love, and finally a story about a prodigal, like the prodigal in all of us, coming home.

    6. Thought provoking and inspirationalI love how the characters in the book are brought to life while living their life I read the book in one evening and I am eager for the next book.

    7. Chose to read this one since the cover said RITA award winning, as well as its storyline of a mid wife in an Amish setting Reminded me of a Nicholas Sparks book or Hallmark TV movie.

    20. Hidden Mercies is the follow up book to An Uncommon Grace, however it reads very well as a stand alone novel For those who enjoy Amish fiction, this book also provides great background on various Amish orders and explains the differences, while incorporating the information naturally into the story And although you typically would not see a Marine helicopter pilot living amongst the Amish people, the author also weaves this effortlessly into the story and it feels completely right I enjoyed this [...]

    21. I am always a little leery of Amish books because its become a popular genre and everyone writes an Amish book, even if its lame and cheesy But, I ve enjoyed Serena Miller s other books so I gave it a try I loved how Miller explained the different sects, something most authors don t do And the story was interesting and the characters were intriguing I want to read the first Amish book by Miller and I am looking forward to the next one.

    22. I liked this book a lot I don t give out many 5 star ratings but this one would be close to it Maybe 4.5 I like that she used the same characters from An Uncommon Grace and am looking forward to the book coming out in April as it will have of those same characters I felt like in this one the ending left a certain sub plot just sort of hanging so I hope that will be addressed in the next.

    23. Not your typical Amish novel.Hidden Mercies A Novel is my absolute favorite Amish novel to date I love this story The characters and their lives make you feel they are part of you Your friends and family They make mistakes like all of us but they trust in their beliefs and families and in God I really enjoyed this story and I definitely will be reading from this talented and lovely author Thank you Serena B Miller You are a wonderful author God bless you.

    24.

    25. What s not to love about these books and every character It was good to read about the troubles Levi and Grace were having because it makes them real and believable Claire is an amazing character as is Tom I love Rocky best of all and Flora and Copycat I love Elizabeth s personality, she makes me laugh out loud I love it all and was sorry it ended.

    26. I truly enjoyed this book It is the second in the Amish series by this author It is a story that has a theme of redemption, on many levels The characters are strong, and after having lived in Amish country in central Pennsylvania for most of my life, I can truly relate to them and have some understanding of their way of life.

    27. Not a great fan of this type of book however I found myself turning the pages wanting to read on preachy but not overly so An insight into the various Amish sects the problems their young face and those that love enough to inter marry Enjoyed it.

    28. One great book written by Serena The story line is one of loss, forgiveness and willingness to forgive A must read for fans who love Amish Fiction I loved the story and can t wait to read the next book.
