Of mercy and myrrh

Sarah Hanks takes readers on a powerful journey of mercy, forgiveness, and love in action through the thought-provoking and heart-breaking stories of her characters. I could not read it fast enough and found myself thinking about it long after I'd finished.

Jamie Ogle, Writer

In Mercy's Song, Sarah Hanks moves seamlessly between past and present from a modern-day prison cell to the shackles of slavery in pre-Civil War America. She takes you into the hearts of her characters as they struggle with love, loss, and forgiveness. We ache alongside DeAndre, Mercy, and Natassa as they choose to do what is right at great personal cost, and we see God at work in their lives, carrying them through the storms.

Sherry Shindelar, Author

There are always at least two sides to every story. And Sarah Hanks pulls back the curtain on the complexity of it all. Mercy’s Song will break your heart for what breaks God’s heart—in the best way. Through these fascinating characters, the author shines light on stories that have long been hidden in darkness and shame. Open the pages to gain new understanding and compassion for the complexity of the human heart, including your own.
