Lush physical descriptions offer a pleasing backdrop to this tale of mystery and romance that focuses on the necessity of love and forgiveness as well as the magnitude of God’s mercy. Eve has a tough lesson to learn as she finds that her snap judgments and holier-than-thou attitude are unrealistic and unkind in an era when men struggle to provide for their families, often putting the basic needs of their wives and children above the law.
In 1931, 17-year-old Eve moves with her parents from crime-riddled St. Paul to the sanctuary of Mercy, Ohio, where her uncle owns a popular vacation lodge. Everything isn’t what it seems, however, as Eve discovers that appearances mean little in a world where temptation is everywhere and good people sometimes make bad decisions that bring danger to those they love.
