Be Still My Soul

Be Still My Soul
Joanne Bischof

Lonnie wants out of her abusive home so badly that she's counting the days until her eighteenth birthday. But she makes the mistake of kissing ladies' man Gideon and finds herself a bride. She's jumped from the frying pan into the fire and doesn't know what to do. Her faith is the only thing keeping her sane.

Set in the beautiful Appalachian mountains and fraught with trouble from the very beginning. This is a beautiful story by first time author Bischof. Her style of writing is very visual and helps the reader to picture where the story is taking place. The characters seemed real and true to life. My only complaint would be the loose ends in the story. There were quite a few illusions to more background on Lonnie in the story and after her marriage they were not mentioned again. I'm hoping that the next book clears those up. Despite this, I enjoyed the story. I'm looking forward to checking out her next novel in the Cadence of Grace Series.

I received this book free of charge from WaterBrook in exchange for my honest review.
