HOUSE OF MERCY
Supernatural and spiritual elements abound in Healy’s novels, and this one is no exception. Unusual storytelling helps to make the message stronger and more thought-provoking.
Beth Borzoi makes a terrible mistake when she has a lapse in judgment one night. That choice could cost her the long-held dream of becoming a veterinarian, but it could also cause her family to lose the ranch that has been in their family for generations. Beth tries to rely on God, and with that trust in her heart, she is accompanied by a mysterious wolf on a journey to find the grandfather who might help in more ways than one.
