When I first found Cindy Woodsmall's novels, I was amazed at how much I enjoyed them. Not being a huge fan of Amish stories, I was hooked from the first chapter. That love for Cindy's writing has continued throughout the series to this third book and stunning conclusion.
We first met Hannah Lapp on the most tragic evening of her young life in "When the Heart Cries". Then, we traveled with her as she left her childhood home in the Old Amish Order and went to find healing from her deep hurt in "When the Morning Comes".
Now, Hannah has found healing and hope again...only trouble in Owl's Perch comes knocking on her door. She is forced to return and re-visit the past. Is she strong enough to face those who shunned her for wrong reasons?
Can Hannah find it in herself to forgive those who've misjudged, lied...and even betrayed her heart? And who will Hannah choose...the man who represents all she's gained...or the one who holds the key to all she's lost?
With heart and hope and a wonderfully balanced glimpse into the lives of the Old Amish Order and the Mennonite community, I am in love with "When the Soul Mends". I'm in love with Cindy Woodsmall's writing!
I'm giving "When The Soul Mends" five out of five bookmarks with a kapp as a tassel (no offense intended--I have high admiration for the Amish)...and I encourage you to take a chance on the "Sisters of the Quilt" series!
P.S. My apologies for posting an incomplete review...I was rushed to the ER last night. I'm doing better now:-)
