Publishing Innovation Awards FinalistIn Small Mercies, 50-something Nancy Jo Sullivan reflects on her life to this point--which includes the death of one of her daughters and a painful divorce--and discovers with great joy that God has been, and continues to be, everywhere. From her grandmother's not-so-tasty date cookies, to a dog that seems bent on attacking her while she's out for a jog, to a kitchen-table conversation with her daughter about muscles and their functions, Sullivan gives us every reason to expect God to show up in the most unexpected ways.

Ultimately, Small Mercies is intended to help second-half-of-life women develop a deeper faith by seeking God in the imperfections of everyday life rather than "limiting" God to those rare moments when everything seems perfect. As Sullivan writes, "The most precious revelations of God's love are layered in the ordinary moments that shape our days."
