Scars of Mercy
Everett Behr goes to great lengths to maintain his distance from people so they won't stare at the disfiguring scars he sustained in a fire. A budding friendship with Tillie O'Dell eases his loneliness, but he is convinced she is only being gracious out of pity. Asking her to endure the humiliation of being with him is out of the question.
God never discards His children because they are flawed, and therefore imperfect. He works on each of us until He has made us new again.
Why the author wrote this book:
Everyone experiences scars. Some are physical and visible. Others are emotional or spiritual, and invisible. How we deal with those scars is a choice we must make. It is my hope that people will view their own scars in a different light after reading this book. SCARS OF MERCY is a love story, but not just between Everett and Tillie. It's a story of God's love for His imperfect children.
