The Weight of Mercy

Our Pastor's Books

Our pastor has written three books inspired by her experiences with homelessness. The first is The Weight of Mercy, a memoir of her first three years at Triune. The Cantaloupe Thief and the newest release, The Cover Story, are mysteries with homelessness as a backdrop. All were published by Lion Hudson in Oxford, England, and are available at local bookstores, at Triune and on See Deb's website at for more information on ordering.

Here's what readers had to say:

The Weight of Mercy:

I started your book as we lifted off the runway in Atlanta on my way to Japan. I cried twice by the time I reached South Dakota and finished the book as we flew over Alaska. I am in awe of your work at Triune and I just wanted you to know how much your book impacted me. – Edwin McCain, Singer/Songwriter

The Cantaloupe Thief:

Deb Richardson-Moore spices her perfectly paced story with just enough detail to let us see, hear, know, and feel exactly what we need and no more. And she does it with writing that's vibrant, crisp, and real – we're treated to a master storyteller showing us how it's done. Murder may be the plot that drives Richardson-Moore's yank-you-in-from-the-first-sentence yarn, but it's her supple and admirable talent that's to die for.John Jeter, author of The Plunder Room and Rockin' a Hard Place

The Cover Story:

This was an intelligently plotted mystery with well-drawn characters and a delightful setting. Reporter Branigan Powers is one of my new favorite sleuths. Highly recommended. Susan Furlong, author of the Georgia Peach and Novel Idea Mysteries
