Mercy Land's story puts us in a small town in the pre-war era of the 1930s. The everyday life of a newsman, Doc, and his trusted right hand lady, Mercy, is interrupted by the sudden appearance of an unearthly book. The book's mystery and purpose become the main focus of the story, as other characters are introduced and the plot unfolds. While I greatly enjoyed the writing style of River Jordan, I did not find it easy to mix this measure of fantasy into what would have otherwise been a lovely piece of romantic fiction. Not my favorite read.
