If you could sum up Waves of Mercy in three words, what would they be?
Captivating, Heartbreaking, Triumphant
What other book might you compare Waves of Mercy to and why?
I'm not sure I can compare it to another story. The 'rags to riches' for an abandoned orphan has been done, but not in this fashion. The 'tragedy to triumph' has also been done before, but this book pulled me in like very few have.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
This is where it gets disappointing. Lynn Austin's previous narrators have set the bar quite high and I'm sad to say that these ladies did not meet expectations. The female voices were just okay, but the male voices were plodding and uninspired. They made me want to quit the book on more than one occasion. It was PAINFUL to listen to the men speak. I would definitely hesitate if I saw any one of these ladies on another recording.
Any additional comments?
I've listened to nearly every one of Lynn Austin's books and I was not disappointed by this book. Well, at least not by the writing. The narration leaves much to be desired. Also, the book did not have the ending I was expecting. I'm hoping there will be a sequel!

Lynn Austin is my favorite author. I love all of her books with this one exception. It was a engaging story but very tragic. So many trials and unfortunate circumstances. However, I could have gotten past the depressing nature of the book if it was not for the narration. There were two narrators and one was terrible. I have never thought that narration alone could ruin a book for me, but I was wrong. Surely, someone else may find the narration unremarkable, and the underlying story and message were good.

As all Lynn Austin books are. Gripping story. Couldn't stop listening. Can't wait for her next book.
Loved it. The characters were so real and their humanity and faith shone through.
