A Love Undone
A Love Undone
An Amish Novel of Shattered Dreams and God's Unfailing Grace
Jolene is only days away from getting married and following her dreams of painting when everything is snatched away. She's left grieving and trying to cope with the responsibilities she never expected to have. Ten years later she's accepted her life and worked to forgive those who abandoned her. And this is when she meets Andy. Andy is a grass widower (a man who cannot get married because his wife left). Andy and Jolene must come to grips with their friendship and what it means to them and the community.
As always, this author does a great job of pulling a story together that captures your attention. The characters were authentic and likeable. The smaller stories that were woven into the main plot added depth and made it more interesting. I like the way she weaves faith and love into the story without it being preachy. There wasn't a lot of mushy romance since most of the book was about the friendship between the two main characters. But what was there was sweet and well done. Despite the fact that I'm not fond of bonnet fiction, I'll always pick up a book by this author. She definitely has the gift of storytelling.
I received this book free of charge from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
