  • Awe Inspiring

    Awe inspiring. That is exactly what I think of Mercy House by Anna Dillon. I not only fell in love with the nuns in her book, I was in awe of their caring and understanding of the work they were doing to help other women who needed shelter and healing.  I was raised in the catholic church but left as an adult. I had an aunt that was sent to the convent by her father when she was 16 years old. She was older than Sister Evelyn but, also, experienced the transition from Vatican I to Vatican ll. She chose to leave during that transition. I learned a lot from this book about the suppression of the nuns by the men who run the Catholic church from the Pope down. It spoke of sexual abuse, rape and homosexuality within the church. We have all heard of the priests that were protected by the church.  This book made me sad, mad and happy. I cried and I laughed and even found myself praying for the church and its people. I don't think I have ever read a book that has hit me as hard in the heart as this book did. It is written with so much compassion and love. I can't say enough about Mercy House. Anna Dillon wrote a remarkable, historical debut novel.  I recieved a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for Fair and honesty review.

  • Mercy House saýs it all. Brìef yet descriptive.

    Not being raised in the Catholic faith, I nevertheless I identified with the troubled women who sought shelter in Mercy House And my respect for the Sisters bloomed as the story progressed. So well written, it touched my heart with compassion on nearly every page.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • One of the best books I’ve Ever Read

    I grew up in an everyday Catholic family in the 60’s. I am no longer Catholic for many of the reasons that were touched here by the author. But, that’s not the reason I loved the book. The nuns are portrayed as ordinary loving people who each have their own story. Their stories and their daily life running a home for women in desperate situations was heartwarming. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a really good well written read. I couldn’t put it down!

    Thanks for your feedback!
