Dr. Mercy’s compassion and personal involvement with her patients reminds me of a dear internist friend. This is obviously not the first book in the series; there are lots of references to events that must have happened in previous books. Each patient is his own storyline; a couple hint at mystery or thriller but the tone of the book is more romance. Mercy’s ex-husband has become a Christian. Does that mean she should reconcile with him even though she is in love with Lukas? This issue is consid ...more

Hannah Alexander writes exciting medical mysteries!

Hannah immediately transports readers into the middle of the action! All you can do is hang on… and keep reading!

Silent Pledge begins just a little slower than the other two books in this series. Odira Bagby is caring for her great granddaughter, who has cystic fibrosis. When Crystal begins to run a high fever with a bad cough, she does the only thing she can do under the circumstances – call Dr. Mercy!

"Silent Pledge" is Christian general fiction with a lot of suspense. This novel is the third and last in a series, but you can understand this book without having to read the others. This novel did spoil some events in the previous novels, though, and the previous novels are excellent, so I'd recommend starting with "Sacred Trust" and "Solemn Oath."

WOW! Though I didn't like this book nearly as much as the first two (I felt they were trying to recreate the first one in some ways), the ending gave a very powerful punch! On the whole marriage issue: I've read some reviews on how this was handled, but I have to agree with the authors on this one. I don't think it's God's will for a person who got out of a desperate marriage and Biblical grounds to go back to it just because the person was saved. I think that's water under the bridge, and if th ...more

The christian love and kindness shared in this series makes you want to read all of Hannah Alexanders' books. One can relate to each character because they are so realistic, especially in today's world. In Silent Pledge there is love of a grandmother, a troubled wife trying to find answers, a relocated doctor, an alcoholic father that has just been released from a rehab, the love they all have for each other, as they find and strengthen their faith in God. Don't miss this series, it's real and s ...more

I can't wait to read more from Hannah Alexander; especially after this third of this ER Trilogy, with it's ongoing drama and character development.

Excellent. I love reading Christian fiction that shows you how the character's faith impacts what is happening in their day to day lives. I also love seeing how the characters grow in their faith.

Last of the ER Trilogy. Lukas and Mercy struggle separately with loneliness, heavy workloads and politics. Shows Christians aren't exempt from problems. Clarence blooming is fun to read about.
