Evidence of Mercy – Terri Blackstock

I’m beginning to really enjoy Terri Blackstock’s writing. (So glad I didn’t let Cape Refuge turn me off!)
In this story, Evidence of Mercy, you meet Lynda and Jake. Two people very different and yet very much alike. Their first priority in life are themselves. They can’t see beyond satisify their own needs at the expense of anyone in their way. You want to hate Jake at the beginning, but you soon realize that he’s a hurting soul that has gotten by on his good looks and money. Lynda reminds me a little too much of myself, not wanting to depend on anyone else, too absorbed in things that have no eternal meaning. I’m reminded through this story that the people around are much more important than jobs, nice things, and even solitude.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
