The prophet Micah praises Jehovah when he cries, “Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy”. Joshua realized as he bowed his head to pray that the key to his situation was in those final four words. Delight to Show Mercy.
Joshua his is brother’s keeper. Alton is taking his freedom and his time to make wrong choices that affect his whole family. Joshua has built himself a prison with his attitude regarding his younger brother. His relationship is based on his disapproval of his brother. When his parents suggest a mission trip to South Texas to help a community that was hit by a hurricane, he learns some valuable lessons about mercy and forgiveness from the victims of the hurricane.
There was many things to like about this book. The narration is done by 3 characters. Joshua a young Amish man, Becca, Joshua’s neighbor and Charlie a older man that survived
the hurricane and desires to rebuild his community. The descriptive narration was well done with the terror of being in the middle of a hurricane and how a community rebuilds. The relationships that are developed is well characterized that you connect well with all. I was blessed by this read.
