Streams Of Mercy

1st Novel in Jenna’s Creek Series

by Teresa Slack

 Winner of the 2005 BAIPA award for “Best New Fiction”

Book Description:

On the day of her father’s funeral, seventeen-year-old Jamie Steele discovers he was once the prime suspect in the disappearance and possible murder of an old girlfriend. All too familiar with his violent reputation and hard-fisted lifestyle, Jamie has to find out for herself if he was capable of the crime everyone in their small town thinks he committed.

The more she discovers about the twenty-five-year old disappearance of Sally Blake, the more convinced she becomes that her father was somehow involved. She has to know the truth even if it completely destroys the tenuous relationship she has with her grandmother, and what’s left of the memories of her father. What will she do if he’s proven guilty? How can she forgive someone who never admitted any wrongdoing? Can she find the mercy in her heart to forgive the past and mourn the father she has lost?

“…Slack creates a compelling plot in her debut novel…strong, consistent, realistic voice…Rather than preachiness…flawed characters suffer the consequences of their sins and come to their own determination of a need for God and a renewal of their relationship with him…The book has red herrings keeping the readers guessing until the end. This book would be a good addition to any mystery lover’s library.”
—-Christian Library Journal

My Review:  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

This is the first Teresa Slack novel I’ve ever read, and I’m glad I did. The characters are believable and compelling, and the mystery keeps you on the edge of your seat. I look forward to reading more. I recommend this novel.

  1. My daughter is a new fan of Teresa’s and I would love to win this book for her! Thanks, Tamera, for doing the giveaway. (And thanks, Teresa!)

    I’m really looking forward to Teresa’s workshop on the 27th on “YOU CAN WRITE A NOVEL.” She’s on the roster of the first 2010 Greater Harvest Workshops, and anyone who writes and lives in or near southwest Ohio should be there!

  2. Hi Tamera,
    I see you’re offering another great book give-away. My interest has been piqued by Teresa’s work as I’ve seen it online, and I’ve wanted to investigate further, but you know what happens~so many books, so little time! Throw my name in the hat. I’d love to win a copy of Streams of Mercy.

    Keep up the good work on the blog. You’re so consistent.
