In 1944, women were thought to be the weaker sex. Divorce was unheard of—a woman’s place was in the home, obeying her spouse and raising their children. After a miscarriage, Calvin Barnes blamed his wife Sarah for being too weak to carry out her duties. His violent, drunken rampages turned deadly.
A chance encounter with a mysterious stranger empowers Sarah to find freedom, sexual enlightenment, and love. Wealthy businessman, Jon Bartleaux, teaches Sarah there is more to life than the 1940s mindset of sex only being for procreation at the pleasure of the husband. Treated as an equal, he teaches her that tender, generous, mutually satisfying sex can be enjoyed by both partners
Sarah puts the pain and guilt of her past behind her until her sister Carol asks for help with a neighbor who is desperate to escape her husband’s abuse, with the added danger of a standing hitman contract should anything happen to him. Will Sarah risk revealing her secret weapon for ending spousal abuse to help Twyla?
Will Jon’s terrible secret unravel it all?

Little did Merci know the Bible she’d received as a gift from her mother, when she was nine years old, would sustain her through most of her trials and tribulations as a Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Survivor. That Bible, that treasure of scripture, love and faith turned Merci into a walking warehouse of seed! In her latest book, THE HARVEST, Merci teaches women a simple but profound method to turn their tragedies into triumphs!
As a born again Christian, Merci found an uncompromising faith in the Word of GOD. For the first time in her life, she experienced true love in her relationship with GOD. A balanced love that produced healing and wholeness the more she walked with the LORD. Inspired by GOD’s principles of seed time and harvest, Merci learned to “sow, plow and reap the harvest” of an abundant life above all that she could ever imagine! THE HARVEST guides women through a step-by-step process of uncovering the layers of their pain with the love of GOD, scripture and prayer. Women will find their lives transformed by faith, inspired by love and restored to a right relationship with themselves. This is only a part of the bountiful harvest that awaits them within the pages of Merci's groundbreaking book!
THE HARVEST, just as Merci’s Bible, is a gift to bless others as well as yourself. Let Merci help you develop unshakable faith while showing how to love yourself as GOD loves you, how to receive the Heaven GOD has for you on earth. You will never regret having THE HARVEST in your personal library. It’s a golden field of love and redemption that produces an ever growing, ever precious crop of peace.
