Could Miss Sadie be right? As Billie uncovers the terrible truth of stolen babies and bone-chilling corruption, she will have to risk everything when powerful people are prepared to do anything to keep buried.

Editorial Reviews

"I was on vacation last week and got to catch up on some reading. One of the books I had been looking forward to absorbing was Kim Boykin's ECHOES OF MERCY. I am a big Kim Boykin fan so I knew opening the pages I was going to like this book and I was not disappointed. I was surprised - because I thought it was going to be a family tale about lowcountry people. It was that plus a mystery. Kim took me back to my South Carolina roots and kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next. If you want to have a fun and exciting visit to the lowcountry then pick up this book!"-Jackie K. Cooper, Book Critic, The Huffington Post"Every word Boykin writes will captivate her readers." --RT Book Reviews"Boykin is a new voice in Southern Women's Fiction." --Booklist"Kim Boykin serves up a story that is good enough to eat...and is guaranteed to entertain."--NYT bestselling author Karen White"Radiant and brimming with Southern charm, Kim Boykin's writing shines!"--NYT bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe
