This is my first book by Kim Vogel Sawyer… it WILL NOT BE my last!
I didn’t think I would enjoy reading about the old-order Mennonites as much as my beloved Amish but the way Kim writes them… I did and I’ll certainly be watching for more!
What an amazing story Kim Vogel Sawyer has written!
And no easy plot for this amazing writer… no sir.
She meets the challenge of a complex plot filled with deep issues and emotions and she does it head-on!
This is not an easy book to read. It deals with real issues and you could almost swear the people are real too. The strength of emotion is so strong, it’s difficult for me to describe – but Kim does an amazing job of it.
Don’t think it’s overdone though. I’ve read books where you find yourself wishing they’d stop with the description and just get on with the story. But Kim weaves the story right around the descriptions as if they are a tightly woven strand of DNA.
You won’t want to put this book down.

More from Water Brook about When Mercy Rains:
She left, heavily weighted with secrets.
But God reveals all things, in His timing.
And He redeems them.
Suzanne Zimmerman was only seventeen and pregnant when her shamed mother quietly sent her away from their Old Order Mennonite community in Kansas. With her old home, family, and first love firmly behind her, Suzanne moved to Indiana, became a nurse, and raised a daughter, Alexa, on her own.
Now, nearly twenty years later, an unexpected letter arrives from Kansas. Her brother asks her to bring her nursing abilities home and care for their ailing mother. His request requires that Suzanne face a family that may not have forgiven her and a strict faith community. It also means seeing Paul Aldrich, her first love.
Paul, widowed with an eight-year-old son, is relieved to see Suzanne again, giving him the chance to beg her forgiveness for his past indiscretion. But when he meets Alexa, his guilt flickers in the glare of Suzanne’s prolonged secret—one that changes everything.
Suzanne had let go of any expectation for forgiveness long ago. Does she dare hope in mercy–and how will her uncovered past affect the people she loves the most?
