About The Book: There are no second chances. Or are there? Krista Mueller is in a good place. She’s got a successful career as a professor of history; she’s respected and well-liked; and she lives hundreds of miles from her hometown and the distant mother she could never please. It’s been more than a decade since Alzheimer’s disease first claimed Charlotte Mueller’s mind, but Krista has dutifully kept her mother in a first-class nursing home. Now Charlotte is dying of heart failure and, surprised by her own emotions, Krista rushes to Taos, New Mexico, to sit at her estranged mother’s side as she slips away. Battling feelings of loss, abandonment, and relief, Krista is also unsettled by her proximity to Dane McConnell, director of the nursing home—and, once upon a time, her first love. Dane’s kind and gentle spirit—and a surprising discovery about her mother—make Krista wonder if she can at last close the distance between her and her mother … and open the part of her heart she thought was lost forever. About The Author: Lisa Tawn Bergren is a mompreneur, God follower, author, editor, traveler, dreamer, risk taker, learner all rolled up into one. She is definitely my kind of writer. Visit her website: http://www.lisatawnbergren.com My Thoughts About The Book: As a child of a parents who suffered from dementia this book touched me to the core. I wish there really were somewhere like Cimarron where Alzheimer's patients could be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. This book is a must if you have walked, or are walking in my shoes. The characters were so vivid that I felt as if I knew both Krista and her mom. It was a touching and emotional story line. When dementia takes a loved ones mind it is actually harder than death....because they are physically still present....but the person you knew and loved is no more. I think Bergren did a wonderful job of portraying the steps of dealing with this illness and making peace with the past. A must read! But don't just believe me....look at what other writers have said about this book: “A timeless tale, to be kept every day in the heart as a reminder that forgiveness is a gift to self.”—PATRICIA HICKMAN, author of The Pirate Queen Praise for MERCY COME MORNING “Mercy Come Morning is Lisa Bergren’s best yet! Strong characters dealing with passionate life-and-death issues in a Southwest setting so authentic I could taste the chilies and smell the sage. A compelling story of longing, love, and the search for life.… It’s a story to meet the need in every woman’s heart.” —JANE KIRKPATRICK , author of A Name of Her Own and the Kinship and Courage series “Bergren just keeps getting better. Mercy Come Morning is a deeply moving story of love lost and found. It is also a gentle but compelling invitation to remember the things we should know by heart but often forget along the way.” —CAROLYN ARENDS, recording artist and author of We’ve Been Waiting for You “Lisa Bergren writes like a dream, softly calling us to familiar places, walking us through our memories in grandma’s kitchen, past the disappointments of growing up, and through the complexities of imperfect families. Mercy Come Morning is a timeless tale, to be kept every day in the heart as a reminder that forgiveness is a gift to self and joy the glittering residue left upon our doorpost when Christmas is kept every day of the year.” —PATRICIA HICKMAN, author of Sandpebbles and Katrina’s Wings This book was previously released as Christmas Every Morning Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in ebook format from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Company through their Blogging for Books program in exchange for my review.
