    2. Rose Rose Rose why are you dating this obvious demon boy? Or maybe he's an evil vampire. I mean, I get it, you like vampires, you keep almost marrying them. But deep down, you know you really want the werewolf. But now you are dating a SECOND vampire, and this one is even more wrong for you. He's not even a really solid Amish vampire.Luckily, this is a good Christian romance, so in the end, you go with the right guy - the beautiful werewolf who ran off into the world, and clearly found the prime [...]

    3. Things finally got sorted out for Hen and Rose. Hen and Brandon get reconciled after his accident. Both of their hearts have softened towards each other and their marriage is stronger than ever. It wasn't so easy for Rose. After she called off her engagement with her fiance she dates another man from a neighboring community. After awhile she realizes that he isn't the man for her and has to decline his marriage proposal making her grief-stricken. Rose still yearns for Nick, her childhood friend. [...]

    4. Here are my thoughts on the series overall1) Irony!/Nobody's perfectIs it me or does anyone else find a lot of irony in this series? For one thing, I find the People's attitude toward Nick versus their attitude toward one of their own very contradictory. Starting with Solomon's opinion of Nick which is initially one of concern regarding his rebellious ways and develops into a blind judgment when he realizes that the worldly boy and his daughter have feelings for one another baffles me. I think t [...]

    5. If you are a regular reading of my reviews you will know that I am about as finicky as can be when it comes to Amish fiction. There are just a few Amish novelists that I really like a lot. I have not read much from Beverly Lewis. I find that prolific authors may not take the time to fully develop a plot and characters because they write so many books. That was kind of how The Mercy felt to me. I don’t want to say that I didn’t like any of this book. I did like this book better than the last [...]

    6. 4.5 stars. This series was great. I loved it. I almost gave this book 5 stars, but five stars have to be books that left me in shambles. This series is very serious and dramatic. Not for people under the age of about 14. It's a lot of talk about marriage and divorce. Also, Rose has the crummiest luck with love because she refuses to address the core issue. The core issue is that yOU'RE IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE ELSE. She addresses it, but still gets butterflies and goes out with this joke. You can se [...]

    7. Rose Kauffman misses her friend Nick, but he left the Amish community after his adopted brother died, his rebellious spirit, has led to the "silencing" of his adopted father Bishop Aaron. However Rose knows that her life must go forward, because Nick will probably never come back, and besides, he is not Amish, and she is determined to follow God. She is happy that her sister Hen and her husband Brandon have resolved their relationship, and are now living closer to home and also serving God toget [...]

    8. This book completes the entire Rose trilogy. I enjoyed the trail of events and liked the trilogy overall, but by the time I got to the latter part of the third book, I was becoming restless. It felt like it was dragging and I didn't care about what Rose was cooking - I just wanted the story to make full circle - which it did - and I expected it would. I enjoyed the last two books the best and although the last one ties up all the loose ends, I felt like there was more action in the second book.

    9. This final book in the trilogy follows two storylines: the first half is primarily about Mamm's struggle with pain, while the second half focuses on Nick's disappearance.While the writing, wasn't awful, there were a lot of things I found disappointing or unbelievable about the story itself. THE CONTENTS BELOW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS.***My first problem with this was the resolution of Mamm's story. While I appreciate that things weren't magically better for her, they came pretty close: she's sudden [...]

    10. The final installment of the Rose Trilogy, The Mercy continues the stories Of Rose, her sister Hen, and others in their tight community. While hoping for reconciliation, Hen and her husband Brandon have been struggling on their way towards divorce. Can the LORD work in a mighty way to restore both their marriage and bring Brandon to faith in Christ? Rose has entered into a courting relationship with a young man named Isaac, but with Nick back in town (and seemingly repentant), can Rose find res [...]

    11. Everything works out! Hen has become reconciled to her husband, Brandon, although not in the way one might expect. And Rose Ann has finally found the man her heart sings for. Beth really turned out to be a pivotal, stand-out character, as do some others. I enjoy the sprinkling in of Deitch words with English, and Beverly is always there with the meaning right after, it really helps to immerse the reader in Lancaster County, PA.

    12. WOW! was my first thought as I finished this book and The Rose Trilogy Series. The story brought me tears of joy. All the loose ends were wrapped up positively. Thank you Beverly Lewis for such a great story.

    13. Best series everThe Rose Trilogy is the best ever! I could read this again. If you haven’t read this, please do, you will not be disappointed.

    14. I became immersed in this book from the first chapter. I favor Amish novels greatly anyway and this one was above my expectations for sure.I haven’t read the other novels in the Rose trilogy, but I will definitely go back and read them now. I felt so swept up with the characters lives, and it was so hard for me to restrain myself from skipping ahead. There is always something going on and I just couldn’t wait to turn the page and read what was to happen next. Rose Kauffman, a young Amish gir [...]

    15. I don't usually like to review books in a series until I've read the entire series. It's much easier to see what works and what doesn't once I've finished the series. As with most Beverly Lewis books, The Rose Trilogy was fraught with romance, mystery, and a deep inside look into the Amish life. I know many Amish people; after all, I'm from a rural county in southern Michigan. The Amish of Beverly Lewis's books tend to be Old Order--not even inflatable tires are allowed. Where I'm from, the Amis [...]

    16. In Beverly Lewis' final book in The Rose Trilogy series, The Mercy, picks up just right where The Judgment left off. By the way, if you haven't read the previous two books in this series, Beverly provides a prologue that gets the reader up to speed, but trust me, you'll definitely want to go back and read the other two in the series, The Thorn and The Judgment.The story finishes up the stories surrounding Rose and Hen, two sisters that are at a crossroads in their life. For Hen, she struggles wi [...]

    17. The Mercy is the last book in The Rose Trilogy from Beverly Lewis. As always, she draws you into the daily life, concerns, and family ties as if you were sitting in the Amish kitchen yourself.The Mercy opens in winter, not only in the actual season, but also in a dark period of Hen's life and marriage. Her marriage to Brandon, an Englisher, is falling apart at the same time he is is in a terrible car accident that leaves him blind. He returns to Hen's Amish family's home during his recuperation. [...]

    18. I received a copy to facilitate my review. The Opinions expressed here are my own.If you haven’t read the first two books in this series “The Thorn” and “The Judgment” I would suggest you do. Briefly you have Rose Kauffman who was taking care of her mother after a buggy accident. You have her sister Hen and her five year old daughter Mattie Sue. Hen had married an Englisher and then gone back home during which time her husband began divorce proceeding that threatened her custody of her [...]

    20. I’m a Beverly Lewis fan and this book is no different – captured from the first page by her writing I couldn’t put it down. While this is book 3 in the Rose Trilogy – there is no need to read the books in order, unfortunately I haven’t been able to read books 1 and 2 but I was able to follow along quite well and know what was going on.I enjoyed how Henn makes her marriage to an English man work even though she longs to return to her Amish roots – all while staying married and honorin [...]

    21. **Spoilers if you have not read the first two books, but not of this book in the trilogy**The Mercy is the conclusion to the Rose Trilogy. Rose has lost her love and her best friend. She doesn't know what's going to happen to her. She believes she'll be a madel forever. Along with Rose's troubles are her sister's. Her sister "ran away" from her English husband back to her Amish life along with her daughter. Her husband had asked for a divorce and then suffered an accident causing temporary blind [...]

    22. There is a reason I and so many other readers love Beverly Lewis: her characters are real. Whenever I open the pages of one of her books, I am whisked away into a story and characters that jump to life before my eyes. In the conclusion to The Rose Trilogy, “The Mercy” continues and concludes the lives of Rose and Nick, Hen and Brandon and several other secondary characters. I loved seeing so many of these beloved characters find their happy endings. Hen and Brandon’s story had me especiall [...]

    23. This review has been written by my wonderful wife, Ann.I thoroughly enjoyed Beverly Lewis' book "The Mercy." It is very fascinating to see into the everyday lives of the Amish. Beverly Lewis has created real life characters that draw you into the story. These characters are faced with the same kind of crises that any of us might encounter (although set in an Amish culture).Rose longs to be a wife and a mother. Hen, her sister, longs to see God work in her marriage. Brandon and Mamm long for phys [...]

    24. As I mentioned in my review of "The Judgment," the first book in this series, I have become increasingly dissatisfied with Lewis as an author and with the Amish genre. I believe that it is quickly becoming a trite, formulaic go-to for someone who aspires to be an author only for success and limited notoriety (notoriety among the unfortunately large group of casual readers of Christian chic lit).I finished out this trilogy because a thin thread of desire-to-find-out-what-happens remained from the [...]

    25. I loved how things worked out in this book!! I really loved Nick & was so happy he & Rosie ended up together. Thankful of Jeb Ulrich telling the truth about what happened for Rosie's mom buggie accident & about what he saw with Christian & Nick. I was also happy the bishop was Aaron was Bishop again. The words described during Nick's baptism brought tears to my eyes. I liked how Nick & Rosie exchanged letters in the tin that belonged to Rosie's family. I also liked how her Da [...]
