About the Book

It's been said that love is perfect, but that you don't have to be perfect to deserve love. Nancy "Nan" Parley's sister, Laura Harris, is far from perfect. Laura's life has been changed forever by a frightening disorder that drives her friends away and threatens to tear her family apart. Despite her imperfections, Laura has an incredible capacity to love--making her extremely vulnerable when she gets close to someone new. Then there is always the question of whether or not to divulge her disorder. When a man enters Laura's life and offers her affection, Nan fears that he'll ultimately crush Laura, as previous suitors have done. Even though she has her little sister's best interests at heart, Nan's efforts to protect Laura may ultimately deny her the love that she so desperately needs. Nan struggles to replace her fear with faith, not just in God but in her sister. The entire family rallies around Laura in this all-out, last chance effort for her happiness. A Multitude of Mercies is a compelling, uplifting, funny, wise, and heart-wrenching novel that will change the way you think about those who are trapped in the space between dreams and reality.
