Review of: Book of Mercy by Sherry Roberts
It was a typical small town with it's problems. One of the problems was the Mercy Study Club. Local women who used financial power to accomplish things in town. The newest project on their list- books. In particular censoring what books the school library carries. It begins a fight this town may not survive. It's champion, Antigone Brown. Antigone goes to great lengths to save the books and the rights of the students.
Having grown up in a small town like this, I've seen these things happen and snowball out of control. I love seeing the light shined in the dark places of the small town's upper crust. The story is good and shows what one person can do to change things. Even if they are viewed as an outsider. I'm not a fan of the rambling. I think the story loses it's way at times and takes a bit to get back on track.
I give the it 3 out of 5 books because of the rambling.
