Streams of Mercy by Lauraine Snelling

Snelling, Lauraine Streams of Mercy

Series: Song of Blessing, Book 3

Publication Date: Sept 29, 2015

Publisher: Bethany House Publishers

ARC copy from Netgalley.com and Bethany House Publishers

 

In this third book of the Song of Blessing series, the town of Blessing, North Dakota is beset with a dreadful outbreak of disease brought into town by the circus performers. Dr. Bjorklund and Dr. Jeffers strive to limit exposure by quarantining the sick from the townspeople and through vaccination. In April 1907 these tasks were not easy and required a great deal of coordination and effort.

Blessing once again pulls together and manages to deal with the extreme difficulties involved in this epidemic. The main characters from the two previous novels play active rolls in this story as well as the introduction of new individual, Clara, who has her own story to add to an already interesting line up of personalities. On an extremely sad note, this book loses one of the characters that have been with the town for a long time. Read the novel to find out how the loss will affect the town and its people. A sad, but inspiring read! I love following the townspeople of Blessing, North Dakota as they continue on their journey through life.
