Little House of Mercy: Love and the Great War
In the early days of WWI, America is insulated from the tragedies erupting across the Atlantic. While men and women die in foreign states, America keeps to itself, peaceful in the face of a humanitarian crisis few can truly comprehend. Yet Marjorie, a young woman of singular strength and determined will, finds her thoughts, heart, and soul wandering to this far away battle.
With no training and few skills, Marjorie gathers what resources she can and sets off on a journey with only one goal in mind…to help. Along the way she will meet new friends and advocates, people that guide her and help her find the niche her heart is meant to fill. Finally, in a small French village near the Front, Marjorie discovers her place and soon transforms it into a Little House of Mercy. There is food and comfort here, first aid, and a breath of peace to soldiers in desperate need.
Yet for all the mercy one house can provide, the war still rages, love still longs, and Marjorie's future still teeters on the edge of uncertainty.
Set at the dawn of WWI, Little House of Mercy: Love and the Great War is a reworking of the 1918 novel The Amazing Interlude by Mary Roberts Rinehart.
