Sometimes a secret must be kept for the truth to be revealed.
Author: Kim Vogel Sawyer
Sometimes a secret must be kept for the truth to be revealed. When a suspicious accident occurs at the famous Dinsmore Chocolate Factory in Sinclair, Kansas, Caroline Lang goes undercover as a factory worker to investigate the circumstances surrounding the event and how the factory treats its youngest employees—the child workers. Caroline’s fervent faith, her difficult childhood, and compassionate heart drove her to her job as an investigator for the Labor Commission and she is compelled to see children freed from such heavy adult responsibilities, to allow them to pursue an education. Oliver Dinsmore, heir to the Dinsmore candy dynasty, has his own investigation to conduct. Posing as a common worker known as “Ollie Moore,” he aims to find out all he can about the family business before he takes over for his father. Caroline and Oliver become fast friends, but tension mounts when the two find themselves at odds about the roles of child workers. Hiding their identities becomes even more difficult when fate brings them together over three children in desperate need. When all is revealed, will the truth destroy the love starting to grow between them?
Often events seem anything but merciful at the time but, later, God¿s mercy in the situation is apparent. Perhaps echoes of mercy ping off someone else and touch you. Or maybe your story is more personal.

Have you ever experienced the presence of God in your life? Have there been times when you felt there was no way out of a situation and God made Himself known to you in a brand new and miraculous way? Do you acknowledge the evidence of God¿s hand on your life? We¿ve all experienced God¿s mercy, yet sometimes we have to look beyond the obvious to understand how mercy and grace reverberate through our daily existence. Often events seem anything but merciful at the time but, later, God¿s mercy in the situation is apparent. Perhaps echoes of mercy ping off someone else and touch you. Or maybe your story is more personal. How have you (or someone you know) experienced God¿s mercy? We all have a story. What¿s yours? ¿Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love¿ (Psalm 51:1).

How can you make up for something that you did as a kid that was both so stupid and so terrible, forty years later it still follows you like a pack of lost dogs? For Billie Warren, it means piling up more and more responsibilities, doing good for the community as the police chief of her Lowcountry hometown. Trying to be the best mother of a teen mom, and daughter to her mom with Alzheimer’s, that she can be. But Billie’s fragile life is thrown into turmoil when the target of her biggest regret, Crazy Sadie, shows up claiming to have witnessed the only murder in the town's history. Sadie Byrd accuses the nearly dead and sainted Judge Norris of savagely beating his own little girl to death forty years ago. Could Miss Sadie be right? As Billie uncovers the terrible truth of stolen babies and bone-chilling corruption, she will have to risk everything when powerful people are prepared to do anything to keep buried.

Echoes of Mercy, Whispers of Love, opens up my spiritual quest, encapsulated with the word Sabali (meaning wisdom or patience in Bambara). Bambara is spoken in Mali, West Africa. Wisdom I believe is organic, so it grows with our life experiences over time, and with that in mind this book is very organic. It starts with my early thoughts mostly philosophical, then it takes you on a deeper spiritual journey. My passion for writing was suddenly rekindled while on retreat at Ashburnham Place (Battle, East Sussex), following my resignation from a career in work-based learning in August 2013. While there I couldn’t keep my experience to myself, so I started posting my thoughts on LinkedIn. By using the LinkedIn App on my iPhone I was forced to make every word work very hard, because the limit for Status Update was only seven hundred characters — who said necessity was the mother of inventions? No matter where I am, or how tired I feel the night before, once that alarm goes off I wake up with this surge of inspiration and I start writing expressly using the WordPress App on my iPhone. This book is alive and breathing with every breath I take. Enjoy!
