Lillian Rossi had it all—a devoted husband, a new baby, and all the riches she’d dreamed of. But one January day changed everything. Now, the consequences of her late husband’s sins extend to her and her son, and Matteo, though only a baby, is the rightful heir to the Rossi empire, making him a target.
Alberto Moretti promised to protect Lillian and her son, but he well knows the cruelty and desperation of the Rossi family. He served them all too long—until God set him free.
As Lillian and Alberto are thrown together in a race to save her and Matteo’s lives, their own sins and Stefano Rossi’s plans threaten to destroy them. Will they fall prey to the danger so close behind, or will they find mercy they’ve done nothing to deserve?Mercy Undeserved, Book Blurb
Mercy Undeserved, by Kristina Hall, is a story of God’s powerful forgiveness and mercy. The heroine, Lillian Rossi, is grieving the loss of her husband while being hunted by those who want her dead. The man who comes to her rescue, Alberto Moretti, is the last person she wants protecting her. Moretti, a man saved by grace, shares how God has forgiven the horrific crimes of his past. Lillian doubts his sincerity and resists God’s tug at her own heart. After all she has done, can she truly taste God’s beautiful gift of mercy undeserved?
Kristina Hall does an excellent job depicting Lillian’s character arc. The development is thoughtful and believable. As readers, we see her heartbreak, fears, and concerns. We see the transformation Lillian experiences lived out in her thoughts and actions.
I also appreciated the clean nature of this book. Though violence occurs, I don’t find the imagery gruesome. Hall does a terrific job at describing the intense physical pain of her characters and is realistic about limitations that may follow.
Mercy Undeserved is the second book in The Moretti Trilogy. While this was the first of Hall’s books I’ve read, it made me curious about book one: Promises Unbroken. Mercy Undeserved can certainly be read as a standalone, but if you’re interested in the series, I encourage you to start with book one. For more about Kristina Hall’s books, click HERE.
