A Love Undone by Cindy Woodsmall

Don't wait. Read the first chapter here.
Goodreads | Amazon
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?

While for many years I hesitated to pick up a novel involving the Amish, I have come to realize that I can count on Cindy Woodsmall to deliver a captivating story. (See Seasons of Tomorrow.) I’m glad I had the chance to read her newest novel, A Love Undone, and experience another heartfelt Amish novel. Woodsmall weaves together the storylines of multiple realistic characters to tell a story of family, loss, sacrifice and faith. It is authentically emotional and inspirational, and yet again, I find myself eager to read more from Cindy Woodsmall in the future. I recommend A Love Undone for any fans of Amish fiction. It’s a wonderful read.

Thanks to Blogging for Books, I received a copy of A Love Undone and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
