A Love Undone by Cindy Woodsmall Book Review



 http://images.randomhouse.com/cover/9780307730008?width=1000&alt=no_cover_b4b.gif
A husband and son abandoned to forge a path alone.
A young woman who sacrificed her dreams.
How will the God of grace and hope help them find their way?

At nineteen years old, Old Order Amish Jolene Keim was on the brink of happily-ever-after when everything changed, stealing the future she expected and burdening her with an unbearable decision. For the next ten years, Jolene throws herself into family life—and then she meets Andy Fisher. The horse trainer and father to a sweet nine year-old challenges her and holds up a mirror to issues Jolene has been unwilling to face.

Andy is cautious about his deepening friendship with Jolene, but he believes she knows the truth about him – that he is a grass widower. As a man whose wife has abandoned him six years past, he is unable to divorce or remarry according to the Amish ways. Andy has wrestled with God concerning his reality, and he had found peace with the solitary future facing him…until he met Jolene.

As Andy and Jolene find themselves confronted by difficult choices, will they trust in God's guidance—or will the allure of their deepening friendship only lead to further temptation?

My Thoughts:

Cindy Woodsmall has become one of my favorite author’s. She really knows how to make the characters stand out and feel like they could be someone you know.

The main character in this story is Andy Fisher is an honorable man who loves the Lord and is faithful to do his duty to his community. I have to say I felt a lot of emotions stirring with his situation and couldn’t help to not want him and his son to be happy.

Another main character is Jolene which was another wonderful  character.

This was a page turner for me. It spoke volumes to me about how hard life is at times but, don’t let it bring you down. We just have to trust that God will work it all out.

I would have loved if the ending had a bit more it almost felt like I was missing a few pages to do a proper closure on this wonderful, heartfelt story.  Then again I guess I wasn’t ready for this story to end. I won’t give away the story as you are going to have to read it for yourself.
