Praise for The
Shape of Mercy:
"As raindrops become
mighty rivers, Susan Meissner’s words seem simple in the beginning, but
one thought builds naturally upon another, phrases and sentences flow
together with effortless fluidity, and before you know it, you are
totally engrossed by the powerful undercurrents of her story. To read
Ms. Meissner is to put yourself into the hands of that rarest kind of
author: an artist working in the medium of words."
--Athol Dickson, Christy Award-winning author of The
Cure and Winter Haven
"I loved The
Shape of Mercy from beginning to end. Ms. Meissner’s prose
sings, and her characters captured my interest from the start. As the
story unfolded, those same characters captured my heart. I won’t soon
forget Mercy, Lauren, or Abigail."
--Robin Lee Hatcher, award-winning author of Wagered
Heart and When Love Blooms
"The Shape of
Mercy is vintage Susan Meissner: tender storytelling that
keeps you hooked; living, breathing characters that capture your heart
and madden you, too; and a message of redemption that sticks with you.
Meissner deftly weaves the stories of three women of vastly different
generations, connecting them perfectly and crafting a winsome,
interesting, powerful read.”
--Mary E. DeMuth, author of Watching the
Tree Limbs and Daisy Chain
"A compelling tale that
will resonate long after you turn the last page. A haunting story,
deftly woven, full of layers and textures that will quickly pull you
out of the present and into the long forgotten past. Meissner recalls a
tale that must not be forgotten, about the tragedies and senseless
cruelties which happen when we abandon grace and turn our backs on
--Siri Mitchell, author of A Constant Heart
