"MISSING MERCY" By Stephenia H. McGee
Made a safe-haven after the Civil War, Ironwood Plantation is a refuge of equality for former slaves. But twenty years and a new generation later, they have become an isolated community with little contact with the rest of the world.
Mercy Carpenter is everything the world thinks she shouldn’t be. Educated and adventurous, she longs to make a life for herself beyond the beautiful prison of Ironwood. When she secretly submits an article to the Boston Globe under a man’s name and receives an enthusiastic response and an offer for employment, she’s determined to take advantage of the opportunity. But she isn’t prepared for a startling world that won’t accept her color or her gender, and her ambitions soon land her in grave danger.
The privileged daughter of a plantation owner and an aspiring suffragette, Faith Harper is determined not to marry. Especially not her father’s opportunistic new business partner. She doesn’t want any man telling her what to do, least of all the annoyingly chivalrous Nolan Watson. But when Mercy goes missing, Faith will do anything to find her best friend, even if it means trusting a man she doesn’t understand. In a time where prejudices try to define them, Mercy and Faith must push the boundaries of their beliefs and trust in the God who holds the keys to freedom.

I have enjoyed all three books in the "Ironwood Plantation Family Saga" I love how the author brings the present and the past together in all three stories.
These stories are so well written that I could pretend that I was watching the scenes taking place instead of reading them.
"MISSING MERCY" By Stephenia H. McGee is a story that shows what courage and faith really is. And following your dream. It is also about discrimination and prejudiced against women and people that aren't Caucasian.
I think women of all ages and whether Caucasian or not would like this saga. These story are ones that have remained with me since I read the first one in 2014, so I was glad when I got the chance to review this third book. "MISSING MERCY" By Stephenia H. McGee. I recommend reading the entire series. I believe if you take my advice and read this series, you will thank me. In fact I have read all of Stephenia H. McGee's books and have enjoyed all them.
I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.
