THE MERCIFUL SCAR
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
St. James and Rue show off their amazing teamwork by focusing on an issue that could be a little unsettling for some readers: cutting. The authors paint a very realistic picture of a bright young woman’s non-suicidal self-injury habits with a smooth and relatable writing style that’s certain to pull the audience in.
After her self-harm goes too far and she wakes up in the hospital, Kirsten decides to go work and live on a sheep ranch in northern Montana — a non-traditional treatment option recommended by her pastor. As Kirsten learns how to buck hay, take care of a farm and herd sheep, she also begins to discover how to manage her emotions and thoughts without feeling the need to hurt herself. She finds that prayer is a way of dealing with her pain that creates sharper results than using a blade. (THOMAS NELSON, Sep., 368 pp., $15.99)
