House Of Mercy

After an accident which results in the death of a prized horse and the possible ruin of her family, Beth, who has the gift of healing, sets out on a journey across the mountains in search of her grandfather, as she is followed by a mysterious wolf.

House of Mercy is an interesting blend of magic and mystery as the heroine, Bethesda Borzoi, searches to fix the tragic mistake she makes. Beth only wants to help, be it people or animals, just like her father. She has a gift for healing and decides to become a vet and work on the family ranch. One night she is contacted by a friend who asks her to help his sick horse. To do so she makes a choice that will spiral into the potential destruction of everything she holds dear.

Her journey through the mountains felt almost surreal. Throughout the novel there is the appearance of a magnificent grey wolf that doesn’t seem as if it is physically there. Grey wolves haven’t been seen in the area for decades and the encounters are dreamlike in their quality. 

Mercy is a prominent theme throughout this novel, as well as the idea of goodness. Why do bad things happen to good people? Beth struggles with her faith and her belief in the goodness of God as she watches her family fall apart. It was a great story that had religious undertones, but it is not the type of book where you feel "preached" to. The story was very compelling and I enjoyed this book.
