Beloved author Lauraine Snelling returns again to her popular Red River Valley setting. Eighteen-year-old Astrid Bjorklund has been studying medicine under Dr. Elizabeth Bjorklund’s direction and dreams of joining her practice in Blessing. But when a missionary arrives and tells of the need for medical ministry in Africa, he seems to look directly at her. Could God be calling her to go to Africa? Joshua Landsverk left Blessing two years ago, but he’s never forgotten Astrid. Returning to town, he seeks to court her, and love begins to bloom. When the opportunity opens for Astrid to go to Chicago for further training, she finds it difficult to leave home … and Joshua. They agree to correspond, but after receiving only one letter from him, she learns he’s left town—again. Believing Joshua no longer loves her, Astrid makes an impetuous, heart-wrenching decision. Will she regret the choice she’s made?

    " I was very disappointed as this book just seemed to go nowhere... Certain characters were not developed fully--Joshua Landsvard, for one. I felt like the whole book was just a "teaser" for you to read the 2nd one. I have never read Lauraine Snelling before and I'm not too jazzed if this is indicative of her writing. "

    " A Measure of Mercy by Lauraine Snelling was an inspirational book that made you think about lifes meaning and all the good things we are able to do if we work together and think about others. "

    " I did not like it first; it seemed like it took awhile to get going. Astrid's doubt when she first got to the hospital was annoying too. I know it's hard to trust God sometimes but she seemed to completely forget who He was. I expected the climax to come much earlier but all in all, it was a decent read. I plan to read the next in the series to see how it ends "

    " I usually enjoy Snelling's simple, nicely written historical novels, but this one was a bit harder to get through because it got way to 'Christian' for me. Labelled as 'Christian Reading' by the library, there were fairly lengthy passages of prayers in this book that weren't in the others, and which I found too forced. Although there has always been emphasis on living Godly lives in Snelling's books, and there has always been a reasonably fitting Christian bent to the story lines, this book came too close to going over the edge for me. I'm hoping that the sequels come back to center for those of us not in the Christian Right. "
