Sometimes a secret must be kept for the truth to be revealed.
When a suspicious accident occurs at the famous Dinsmore Chocolate Factory in Sinclair, Kansas, Caroline Lang goes undercover as a factory worker to investigate the circumstances surrounding the event and how the factory treats its youngest employees—the child workers. Caroline’s fervent faith, her difficult childhood, and compassionate heart drove her to her job as an investigator for the Labor Commission and she is compelled to see children freed from such heavy adult responsibilities, to allow them to pursue an education.
Oliver Dinsmore, heir to the Dinsmore candy dynasty, has his own investigation to conduct. Posing as a common worker known as “Ollie Moore,” he aims to find out all he can about the family business before he takes over for his father. Caroline and Oliver become fast friends, but tension mounts when the two find themselves at odds about the roles of child workers. Hiding their identities becomes even more difficult when fate brings them together over three children in desperate need. When all is revealed, will the truth destroy the love starting to grow between them?
Echoes of Mercy was another wonderful book by Kim Vogel Sawyer. No matter how many times I read her books I still find the next one new and exciting. Caroline has become one of my favorite heroines. No matter what challenges she faced she always stayed true to what she believed. Oliver has also become a favorite. What he did at the end of the book was what had him officially placed on my favorite heroes shelf. :)
I don't think there was one single thing that I disliked about this book... well besides the villain of the story, but your not supposed to like them, right? ;)
Echoes of Mercy was just the book I needed to read, it was perfect. I don't know how any book that I read in the near future will be able to hold up to it.
5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that was as sweet as Dinsimore's World-Famous Chocolate-Coated Vanilla Creams. :)
I received this book for free fromBlogging for Books for this review.
