VOX: What would you say with 100 words?

The Mercy Seat by Elizabeth H. Winthrop is a brilliant historical novel which deals with heavy content through the eyes of various onlookers. I really would like to read another book about these characters, this time going more in depth about challenging perceptions. The Mercy Seat was published on 8 May, 2018 by Sceptre books....
