This is one of those books you can’t seem to get enough of. Having read the first book of the series titled Still, I was looking forward to this next book and I’m glad my wait was worth it. Eniola Prentice did a very fine job! By the way, I’m a character in the book. Cool stuff!
Alright, I’m here to share some tea about the book.
Following the lives of Nikky, Sola, Ladi and Tayo in this book make you pause in your tracks to appreciate the love of God and how amazingly thoughtful He is concerning you.
Reading Mercy would remind you that God’s Hands are open to everyone. We are all undeserving but that’s the beauty of His gift of salvation. We can’t earn it; He has done all of the work and just wants us to believe for us to enjoy His gift.
I also loved the gentle reminder that both becoming and remaining God’s child is by His grace. He is the one who enables us both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
Lastly, Mercy reminds you of the importance to take your time to heal. I loved the love stories but regardless of the emotions of the parties involved, they couldn’t seem to get it right. Love is beautiful but until you embrace your completeness in God, expecting your partner to fill a void that they cannot fill would still disappoint you.
About the book:
Broken. Drowning. Desperate. Lost.
When the lives and hearts of four friends start to crumble, can God’s mercy reach them still?
In her second year of medical school, Fadesola (Sola) Cardoso faces an impossible choice: stay with her longtime boyfriend, the one who knows her darkest secrets and loves her anyway, or move forward with Ladi, the man who gives her hope for an unstained future. Even as she wrestles with her options, life as a medical student becomes increasingly difficult—full of endless exams, stressful social activities, and reminders of a past that continues to haunt her.
Ladi struggles with Sola’s divided loyalties while trying to maintain his perfect image as class president, a promising student, and model Christian. But scandals inside and outside the lecture hall threaten to break apart the fragile peace once and for all between Ladi, Sola, and their friends Nikky and Tayo, who are fighting battles of their own.
In this epic second instalment in Eniola Prentice’s new-adult Still series, the faith of these four medical students will be tested like never before. Discover their gritty troubles and grand triumphs as they navigate friendships, revelations, romance, and career goals in light of the redemptive power of the cross.
