Mercy Triumphs (Side by Side #3) by Jana Kelley **Review**

Mercy Triumphs (Side by Side #3)

Three women. Three impossible circumstances. One merciful God.
Mia, an American Christian, has lived in Sudan so long that persecution, harassment, and danger have become commonplace for her. Her tough outer shell threatens to harden her heart while her newly Christian friends, Halimah and Rania, former Muslims, are forced to live in exile outside Sudan. All three quickly discover that escaping danger in one place only means facing even greater challenges elsewhere. As God’s mercy becomes evident in their lives, they must choose whether or not to offer mercy to those who don’t deserve it.
Third in a trilogy, Mercy Triumphs opens the reader’s eyes to modern-day persecution and the life of Muslims in Sudan. Based on real-life events, Mercy Triumphs reveals some of the struggles Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for new believers, those who are persecuted for their faith, and even for the salvation of the persecutors.

This is the third book in the series. And what  series! I have had the pleasure of reading Side by Side and Door to Freedom so I was very excited at the prospect of being able to read and review the third book.
Three women. Three very different stories but, one uniting connection.  This is a story that unites three women with a tangible plot that is sensitive, heartfelt, and brave. And that fact that this story is based on real-life events makes it that much more heartfelt and eye-opening. This is a very touching, sweet, challenging, and brave story of these three women and I completely enjoyed this book as well as the two prior stories. The relationship that these women share is palpable within the story.
