Mysteries of Mercy

Follow Beth through death’s mysterious valley up to God’s mountaintop of mercy

A Modern Day True Love Story

Best-selling Christian fiction author Erin Healy takes us on a fascinating journey into the stunningly rugged terrain of Southern Colorado in her latest thriller, House of Mercy (Thomas Nelson, August 2012). Confused, grieving, but determined to make amends, she embarks on a horseback journey across the harsh Rocky Mountains guided by a wild, unpredictable wolf named Mercy that may or may not be real.

“Healy has proven she has what it takes to write a fast-paced supernatural thriller guaranteed to keep you hooked right until the last page and beyond,” according to TitleTrakk.com. And New York Times top fiction authorTed Dekker says Beth’s writing is “Heart-pounding suspense and unrelenting hope that will steal your breath.”

Erin is known for creating distinctive settings that go hand in hand with the themes of her books, and House of Mercy is certainly no exception as her volatile emotional struggles match the challenging physical settings as she traipses across the rugged Rockies. At the same time, she wrestles spiritually with the notion of modern-day miracles.

Garnering accolades from numerous sources, including being named Book of the Year finalist, Healy consistently turns out highly readable, captivating and informative novels that are awaited eagerly by her huge following of readers. Her previous best-sellers include Never Let You Go, The Promises She Keeps and The Baker’s Wife. She also co-authored with Ted Dekker best-sellers Kiss and Burn, and with House of Mercy, her readers will be thrilled once again.

The story’s realism comes from Healy’s personal encounter with Colorado wolves, the Rocky Mountains and research done with Colorado ranchers. The reader will experience a “you-are-there” feeling as Beth’s adventure takes them through the craggy gorges, across tumbling rivers and finally to the mountaintop of mercy. It’s an adventure you don’t want to miss.

Erin’s in the House (interview cont)

Interview with Erin Healy

How did you find so much detailed information about ranching life in Colorado? Did you just make up the fictional “facts,” or what research did you do? 

The only detail that I consciously fictionalized was the size of the Blazing B Ranch. It’s large for the San Luis Valley and would more likely be found on the eastern plains of Colorado or in Montana. But I tried to be true to the rest of the facts. (A topographical map of the valley really does look like the profile of a wolf’s head.) I read a lot of material written by ranchers and others who live in the valley. I visited the area, and I enlisted the advice of Southern Colorado ranchers Joyce and Merrill Bond. And of course, you can’t call yourself a real Coloradan if you haven’t attending a rodeo and a stock show or two. My family likes to go to the National Western Stock Show in Denver when we can. Of course, I’ll own up to any factual errors that sharper minds than mine will surely find.

Beth, the lead character, struggles with the notion of modern-day miracles. Tell us about that struggle, both for her and for you. 

The notion of asking God for a miracle stirs up all kinds of questions: What exactly isa miracle—is it merely anything we can’t explain, or something more? Do we have to earn the miracle? Why do some people get miracles and others have to live with their suffering? Is the answer about us or about God? Beth struggles with all these questions, and so do I: I’m looking for a miracle of my own right now. I believe most people are. My issue is unresolved and involves other people, so I’m not free to talk about it publicly in this season of my life. Maybe that’s why I devoted some of House of Mercy to processing my struggles with how God works in our lives.

What do you hope House of Mercy can achieve as a Christian novel? What is your personal goal for the book?

One thing the novel can’t do is answer all those questions about miracles. Really, I don’t pretend to know. But I do hope it will elevate readers’ faith in the goodness of God even while we live with the mystery of him.

Do you have another novel brewing? What can we look forward to next?

Right now I’m working on Afloat (May 2013), a survival story about a small group of people stranded in a floating home as disaster batters them, exposes their secrets, and puts real love to the test.

For Mercy’s Sake

Follow Beth through death’s mysterious valley up to God’s mountaintop of mercy.

Beth has a gift of healing, which is why she wants to become a veterinarian and help her family run their fifth-generation cattle ranch. But it only takes one foolish decision for Beth to destroy it all. She quickly scrambles to redeem her devastating mistake, pleading with God for help, even as a disturbing mystery begins to unravel her life. But the repercussions grow even more unbearable—a lawsuit, a death, a divided family and the looming loss of everything she treasures. Can Beth ever truly be whole again?
