Myths of a Merciful God, was actually a great book. I enjoyed reading it. Cynthia Ceilan wrote an amazing book. I thought that the way it was written and the way she described everything that was happening in the book was exceptional and it showed great loss and understanding.

This is one of the books I've gotten for free from First Reads. It's probably not a book I would have picked up myself, but I enjoyed reading it. There are parts that I think would have been good if she had expanded on them more (like the shadow people she sees or the history with Liliana and Lily). Like real life, though, not every question has an answer. The writing style gives you the feel of Sarah's grief as well.
