“Suddenly angelic beings of light appeared. They said I was at a crossroad, and it was here where I had to make a choice . . .”
In 2022, forty-two-year-old Dr. Stormy Hera, a music professor at the University of Victoria, is serving a manslaughter sentence at Sunnydale Forensic Hospital in British Columbia.
Although she can’t recall committing the crime, she feels strongly that she did the right thing. In the hopes of jogging her memory and healing her soul, Stormy is tasked with writing her autobiography as part of her rehabilitation.
Spanning the 1940s to 2026, and set in the Saskatchewan prairies, Olympia, Greece, and Canada’s West Coast, For Love and Mercy follows the lives of free-spirited Evangeline, and Stormy herself—including a near-death experience that changes everything.

FOR LOVE AND MERCY by C. Ingrid Deringer takes place in the early 1940's through to 2026, set in The Saskatchewan prairies, Olympia, Greece, and Canada’s West Coast. I really enjoyed this journey with these colorful characters as we get to each of these places in history. Deringer does a great job writing this story and all of the detailed scenes throughout the book shows her amount of research. The many emotions throughout this book caused some of the scenes to be so difficult to read, where others were more enjoyable. With the unique characters and the many twists and turns along with the fabulously written story, For Love and Mercy is is as close as realistic as you can get.
As far as who would enjoy this book, anyone would, and I hope you will give this book a try. For Love and Mercy gets Five Stars from me and don't forget to look it up at your favorite bookstore.
I received this book from the author through iReadBook tours. I was not expected to write a favorable review. The words here are totally my own.
