Justice, delayed, and lots of Mercy
Guest Review by Julie Hilton
A boy rescues a dog and must find a way to feed and get vet care. Trying to find work makes him some enemies and some friends: an older man, and elderly eccentric woman and a businessman. At a critical point enemies combine to hurt the boys friends with false accusations. Trial ensues. A study of Mercy, justice, forgiveness. Tragedy of gossip and revenge, and miracle of love and friendship.
I loved the story and lessons taught. I hated the ugly gossip which led to accusations of crime.
There are some content concerns. The trial was for accusations of sodomy and improper relations with a minor child. It was handled well but still not for younger children.
