Though My Heart is Torn by Joanne Bischof A REVIEW

by Joanne Bischof
The Cadence of Grace, Book 2

Gideon O’Riley has two wives—but he doesn’t know it.
Settling into a simple life in the majestic Blue Ridge mountains, Lonnie and Gideon O’Riley have finally found happiness after the rocky start to their marriage. The roguish bluegrass musician has fallen in love with his gentle wife and the God she serves, and Lonnie rests secure in his tenderness for her and their young son. A heartless ruse interupts their peace, bringing them back to Rocky Knob—and forces them to face the claims of Cassie Allan, a woman who says she is Gideon’s rightful wife.

As Gideon wades into the depths of his past choices, Lonnie is stunned by the revelations. She has no choice but to navigate this new path, knowing that surviving the devastating blow will take every ounce of strength  she has.

While Gideon’s guilt  and his bitterness towards Cassie threatens to burn up his fledgling faith, Lonnie wrestles to find the courage to trust the God who brought them together in the first place. Will their hard-earned love be able to conquer all?

Lonnie only wanted her husband’s love. Now that he belongs to another, can she surrender Gideon to a God with a bigger plan?

Married to her first sweetheart, Joanne Bischof lives in the mountains of Southern California where she keeps busy making messes with their home-schooled children. When she’s not weaving Appalachian romance, she’s blogging about faith, writing, and the adventures of country living that bring her stories to life. Be Still My Soul is her first novel.

   This is the first book I’ve read by Joanne Bischof and I love, love, love it. Even though it is book two in The Cadence of Grace series it still can be read as a stand alone. Book one is called Be Still My Soul and I now really want to read it.
  The characters are well described and very likable or not likable which ever is the cause. The scenery and places are very defined and easy to see yourself there.
  Reading this book I really want Gideon to do one thing, but don’t know if that is possible. I don’t want to give away the story, but I really want Gideon to be able to live with the woman he truly loves. Now I can’t wait for book three and the conclusion of this series.
  Joanne Bischof is now a new favorite author of mine. She knows how to tell a story that really grips you and keeps you wanting more. Her book Though My Heart is Torn is full of love, compassion and life.
  I highly recommend this book and anything by Joanne Bischof and will be giving this book five stars. Wish I could do more.
