Thirty year-old Isobel Fourie is at her wit’s end. With her late husband’s life cover payout running low she struggles to support herself and her young daughter. When the opportunity arises to live and work on a game reserve just outside the city, Isobel starts to believe that perhaps God does care about her after all.
Living on the reserve is everything she’d hoped it would be. And when Izzy meets the new health club manager, Brad, who is also her neighbour, Isobel wonders if perhaps her heart could love again. Bradley Nel, an ex-policeman and special operations agent, seems to need nothing and no one. As their growing friendship reveals the chinks in Brad’s emotional armour, Isobel is at a loss to understand why he still keeps her at arm’s length.
When the truth of Brad’s rejection is finally discovered, Isobel is broken. Will Brad find the forgiveness he so desperately craves? And will Isobel have the change of heart needed to give their love a chance.
Isobel's Mercy is Book Seven in the Love in South Africa series, and follows on from Book Six, Suzanne's Chance. It is not a stand alone title. Readers are advised to begin the series with Book One, Rachel's Blessing.
