Mercy Oakes’ mother is stricken to discover that her artistic daughter is besotted with a man she considers a ‘country lout’. Her high-society aspirations demand a man of culture and fame, so she finances Mercy’s trip to Paris to study under a great painter. Mercy’s own ambition agrees to the trip.
Little does Mercy realize that the designs of a charming French suitor are not what they first appear to be.
When circumstance forces her hand she returns to Cheyenne, Wyoming, guilt-ridden and brokenhearted, only to discover the man she loves is engaged to be married the following day.
Is there indeed mercy for Mercy? Or will her wilful travels lose the very thing she has been longing to discover all along?
Art and artifice, highway hijacking, dramatic revelations and romantic returns, unfair dismissals and a desperate damsel, all lead to a delightful conclusion that even the insufferable Cynthia Oakes cannot argue with.
Travelling Mercy is the third book in the Grace and Mercy Find Peace on the Prairie Trilogy. Each book is a complete and satisfying romance following one of our courageous brides.
