Show synopsis In small Mercy, North Carolina, a group of influential women-the Mercy Study Club-decide to remove "undesirable" books from the school library. It was supposed to be easy. But they hadn't planned on Antigone Brown, a woman who has trouble reading road signs, keeps a stone in her pocket to help her remember right from left, and despairs of ever being a good mother to her unborn child. As she is quick to tell you, she is no hero. But now she will have to face her greatest fear to save the town's books. Read Book of Mercy: If you like serious subjects (book banning) treated with a sprinkle of humor. If you like to read about relationships, the kind that last forever and the kind that make you crazy. If you like underdogs who take in strays, both the human and animal kind. If you like a page-turner with unforgettable characters and spiced with small town flavor (and shenanigans). ***If you are looking for Sherry's funny, quirky novel about art and losing your creativity, simply search under "Maud's House."
