"Rebecca St. James and Nancy Rue have crafted a beautiful and moving story about how an unexpected difficulty can truly be a blessing in disguise. Anyone reading will not only be entertained, but also inspired as Sarah's Choice reveals that no matter the circumstances, God does work everything for our good. Having traveled the country to speak to thousands of young people, I think this book is especially timely for the challenges many of us are facing. I am sure this book will touch many hearts!" * Lila Rose, president of Live Action, a media-based nonprofit dedicated to building a culture of life * "The Merciful Scar is a tender, beautiful, and insightful book about a difficult subject. Nancy Rue and Rebecca St. James have crafted a heart touching story that feels more real than imaginary. While reading, you might need to remind yourself that these characters are fiction. The plotlines, twists, turns, and heart-wrenching situations will wrap around your heart in such a way that you can't help but be affected." * Lori Twichell, Fiction Addict * "My brother Joel and I speak after shows to teens and young adults across the country. Because of this, we know that the message of this book is relevant and timely! The mix of humor, insight, and drama in The Merciful Scar helps to powerfully convey needed truth. Congrats to our sister Rebecca and Nancy on a great book!" * Luke Smallbone, For King and Country * "We shouldn't be too surprised to discover that a singer-songwriter as gifted and sensitive as Rebecca St. James has produced an amazingly moving novel---one that young women will find both relevant and deeply satisfying. Beautifully crafted with co-author Nancy Rue, The Merciful Scar will not only touch your heart, it might just help heal it." * Kari Jobe, Dove Award-winning artist and speaker on the Revolve tour * "St. James and Rue show their amazing teamwork by focusing on an issue that could be a little unsettling for some readers: cutting. The authors paint a very realistic picture of a bright young woman's non-suicidal self-injury habits with a smooth and relatable writing style that's certain to pull the audience in." * Romantic Times, 4-star review * "Grammy and Dove Award-winning St. James (Wait for Me: Rediscovering the Joy of Purity in Romance) and Christy Award winner Rue (The Reluctant Prophet) tackle a tough topic with sensitivity and forthrightness in an intense novel about self-injury, self-esteem, and the numerous shades of love. Highly recommended, with crossover appeal for New Adult readers." * Library Journal, starred review *
