Though My Heart is Torn
The second book in the Cadence of Grace series opens with Gideon and Lonnie O'Riley living a happy, simple life in the Blue Ridge mountains. After their marriage overcame a rocky start, they have grown to love one another and Lonnie's sweetness is slowly softening Gideon to the God she serves.
When trouble arises at home due to Gideon's past, Lonnie is left without the husband she has grown to depend on. Can Gideon make his past choices right and continue to build a life with Lonnie? Or will they be torn apart by forces beyond their control?
Written in a similar style to that of Janette Oke's (though not quite like the sweet, uncomplicated stories that Oke penned), Joanne Bischof draws reader into a time period when life moved at a slower pace, and yet was not without it's own trials.
While I didn't read the first book in this series, I feel like readers could still enjoy the book, since it explains some things that happen in the first one. It would probably have been even more enjoyable if I had read the first one though.;)
