Publisher's Summary

Sandra Dallas, best-selling author of The Persian Pickle Club, weaves an intricate and sophisticated tale in New Mercies.

Nora Bondurant is divorced— unfathomable for a woman in 1933—and has inherited a house from a dead aunt she never even knew existed. But when she travels to Mississippi to claim her inheritance, she finds her eccentric neighbors would rather help her acquire a new husband than reveal the secrets surrounding her aunt’s death.
As Nora becomes more and more enmeshed in the community and in her family’s history, she learns surprising things about the life and death of her aunt: kinship isn't always what it seems, loyalty can be as fierce as blood relations, and every day we are given new mercies to heal the pain of loss and love.

Satisfying and comforting

Sandra Dallas writes novels that bring the reader to another place and time. I don't think this novel has the depth of Tallgrass or Prayers for Sale but I can see how Dallas has continued to grow as an author and I like that. The story left me feeling content and intending to look for new mercies every day.
