    " I really liked the imagery in this book. Even though it is more of a young adult book and a fairly simple coming of age story with a twist of a murder mystery, I found it captivating. "

    " In 1918 rural Texas, Mercy's family struggles to get by. They are so short on money that her father has to leave home to find work, and Mercy, as the oldest, also must leave home to go hire on for another local family. They can't afford to pay her, but in exchange for housekeeping duties and cooking, she can get room and board. While she is away, influenza comes to the area. Mercy's employers are both stricken, but even worse - she arrives home, all of her siblings and her mother are dead too. Distraught and alone, Mercy must find a means of supporting herself. The family she hires on with has trouble of its own however. And there is murder involved as well. An interesting perspective of life during this time period - and a love story to boot! "

    " This book was okay! By the way, the girl on the cover is soo ugly! I mean, I wouldn't imagine her as Mercy at all! I pictured Mercy looking more older, and of course, prettier. Overall, a nice, easy, sad book. "
