My Hope is Found by Joanne Bischof A REVIEW

After finally finding love with his sweet bride Lonnie, Gideon’s heart was torn when a woman from his past claimed to be his true and rightful wife, forcing him away from his family. God’s merciful hand saw Gideon through the heartache, and with Cassie’s blessing, he is able to return home. But his journey back through the Blue Ridge Mountains will hold a trial he never anticipated.

Meanwhile, Lonnie determines to seal off her heart from Gideon, convinced he is lost to her forever. Strengthening her resolve to move on is her growing fondness for the handsome Scotsman, Toby McKee—the young reverend she has come to care for deeply. His proposal of marriage offers a bright future for her and her young son.

Yearning to allow joy back into her life, Lonnie must put aside the broken pieces of her heart that still love Gideon. When he returns to find her betrothed to another, he has to place his hope in God, trusting that the One who redeemed their love once can do it again.

   My Hope is Found by Joanne Bischof is book three in the Cadence of Grace series. I didn’t read book one, but loved book two. Book three My Hope is Found is good, but it lacked what book two had.
  I’m glad at how it ended but to get to that end it wasn’t that great. It didn’t keep my attention and was hard to finish.
  I don’t want to give the story away but I find it hard to believe that someone who loved someone would give them up and how someone could love another person when they loved that person so much in the first place.
  Some parts were rather touching and it was full of love and tenderness, but just not what I expected or hoped would happen in this third book. Lonnie, Gideon and Toby are intriguing characters but they could have been so much better. I do recommend this book, but it wasn’t a favorite of mine.
