Today I am reviewing An Unbroken Heart,the second book in the Amish of Birch Creek series by Kathleen Fuller.
Here is a brief synopsis:
An argument. A crash. In an instant, Joanna’s world is changed forever.
One minute, Joanna Schrock was arguing with her parents, and the next, her parents’ lives were claimed in a hit-and-run buggy accident.
Her body is broken, but her heart is in even deeper pain — after all, how do you cope with your parents’ deaths when your last words were spoken in anger?
After an extended stint in a physical rehabilitation center, Joanna re-enters her Amish life. But nothing is the same — not even her feelings for Andrew Beiler.
Joanna has loved Andrew since the age of twelve, and her feelings have not changed throughout the years. She is thrilled when Andrew wants to get married, but she wonders whether it’s love he’s feeling, or pity. As the couple’s wedding date approaches, Joanna isn’t overcome with the deep joy she was hoping to feel; instead, she’s wracked with anxiety and guilt.
Joanna hears God whispering to her, Be strong and courageous, but she’s afraid that courage looks a lot like walking away from her dreams and into the plan of her Heavenly Father. If Joanna takes the first step toward healing, will it cost her everything she’s ever wanted? Or could God be changing the desires of her heart?
What a romantic tale…
“An argument. A crash. In an instant, Joanna’s world is changed forever.”
I knew the moment I read that description, I would have to read this book. And I was pretty sure, if it lived up to that line, that I would enjoy it!
Oh my! I loved this story . . . when Joanna proposes to Andrew, then calls it off before the wedding, I just knew they would both be miserable, unless they could work things out. And I’d like to say more, but it’s much better for you to read it for yourself.
I just hope I haven’t already given away too much. One thing I want — is to make certain you know how much I loved the story — and how much I want to encourage you to read it.
Kathy Fuller has written an amazing story of love, courage, and forgiveness. You’ll love Joanna and her relationship with Andrew. Be sure to get a copy and read it for yourself.
God bless you!
