Wow. This book was not at all what I was expecting. It was real. It was shocking. It was moving. And hopefully, life-changing.

It was real in that there was no sugar coating the truth. Mercy told her story, and it really came alive. Jessiqua has done a fabulous job of keeping the story real. Mercy tells it like it was. She doesn't apologize for what she was feeling, or the things she did. It happened, and we see things the way she did at the time. In that regard this book is unlike any book I've
This book is intensely riveting. It was nearly impossible for me to put even though my Kindle was dying and I had to go to work the next day. In some ways, I believed I enjoyed Mercy's story even more than Love's (and that is saying a lot!!)as I felt I could relate to Mercy's story. Generally speaking I try to avoid books of a sexual nature but this was different. It was more like: let's get down to brass tacks and discuss life the way it really is and not the way it should be!! Mercy is an over ...more

Oh, my. Did I ever love this book! So many truths are woven into the pages. And so much hope.

Can't wait to read this author's next book!

My review for A Memoir of Mercy book two in the Memoirs of Life series by Jessiqua Wittman: I just finished reading a Memoir of Mercy by Jessiqua Wittman and she has asked me to write a review on what I thought of her second book. Here it is: "I think it's a wonderful piece. It's just as amazing and beautiful as her first. Again she has captured every genre in this second book as she had in her first. The characters are strong and wonderfully well described and written. The newer characters back ...more
I really enjoyed Memoir of Love, Jessiqua Wittman's first book. However, this book was even BETTER! Not that I "enjoyed" it more, but rather because I NEEDED it more. It touched my thinking in very real and applicable ways to the degree that I was able to more effectively deal with situations I was going through. Had I not had the exposure to the elements in the book which highly related to elements I was going through in life, then I may very well have reacted in the same fashion as the bad exa ...more

This book took me back to my Junior year of high school -- it thoroughly captures the confusion of trying to do the right thing in a tumultuous time. I personally connected better with the main character in Wittman's first book (Love), I would recommend this book for teenagers or those still dating. As a believer in the power of God, I always enjoy seeing good fight against evil. Like Memoir of Love, Memoir of Mercy hooks you in and keeps you up late reading, so be warned!

For me this story was not a predictable story, there were unexpected twists and turns that kept me reading and wanting to know what was going to happen next. One of the "lessons" for me was you can't '...judge a book/person by the cover...'

A Memoir of Mercy is the book I mostly identify with in this series.

At first I wasn't sure where it went. A Memoir of Love is pretty evenly spaced out when it comes to spiritual insights, the way the characters grow in their relationship with God etc.

However, A Memoir of Mercy seems like just any Christian story until about halfway into the book. It suprised me a bit since I was wondering where the whole God-thing was in the story. Not that it wasn't in there, just not nearly as intense as in th

This book was my surprise story. We were finishing up the editing of A Memoir of Love, and I was on bedrest with my second pregnancy, when the concept of this edgy, underground tale came to me. I loved it from the beginning. It was a fun adventure to write, and it gave me a platform to whisper the divine concepts I had been learning lately in story form. If I ever sit down to look at some of my work "just for the heck of it", I usually open this one. Although certain plot twists can really be a ...more
