I just finished The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner, and I really enjoyed it.  It was about the Salem Witch trials, and I did not realize when I requested it that it was in the Religion & Spirituality genre.  It was a good read and I may have to look for some more of her books.  Has anyone else read anything of hers?  I love Historical Fiction and Spiritual books and this one was a great combination of the two!

Yes i have read ALL her books.  I have enjoyed every single one of them, she is one of the few Christian authors I recommend to general market readers.

She doesn't write just historical/contemporary, most are contemporary books and then some mystery/suspsense ones as well.

Yes, "The Shape of Mercy" by Susan Meissner was excellent! I love books about the Salem Witch Trials but this was my favorite!

Does she write a lot of individual stories or are most of hers books set up in series?  I so don't want to start anymore series books. :)
