I really didn't think I'd like this book. Really. I grew up around the Amish, and have a vast respect for the culture. The first chapter really turned me off of it. But I kept reading, and was really glad I did.

Just what you expect from Cindy Woodsmall - Great story, Wonderful characters, deep emotions!

I do believe Cindy has another hit on her hands!

WOW!

I started reading A Love Undone and before I knew it I was 3 chapters in!

The story captured me completely, which is precisely why I love Cindy’s writing style.

I will say this… when you begin reading, you never see tragedy coming.

If you read the blurb on the back of the book, you know something is coming – you may not know what or when but you know something… is coming.

But you will never see it coming!

You start reading and you’re immediately pulled in to the story and when tragedy does strike, you are completely unprepared for it.


I’m telling you, it will hit you like a ton of bricks.

And that is only one thing that makes this such a well-written book!

You get to experience the shock with the characters – you get to feel the same pain right along with them. You can’t close yourself off to it because you are completely and totally shocked… just like they are.

The characters are the next best thing about this story.

There is always such depth to Cindy’s characters, you truly feel as if you know them each personally – even secondary characters. You will love them, you’ll feel their pain and their joy, and you’ll find yourself in their shoes – trying to live with the choices they’ve made.

I believe that is one of the things that makes Cindy Woodsmall such an excellent writer. She puts depth and detail into her stories without going on and on. She excels at using the story itself to show you who the characters are and what they’re going through.

I fell in love with Jolene and her sense of humor and her determination. The book however bogged down at times.

Jolene and Van are all set to marry when her parents drown in a flood. Van doesn't want the responsibility of a ready made family and the wedding is canceled. A year later, Van is married with children. Jolene has not married but has managed to keep her family together. She has met a man that has stolen her heart. The problem is, he is a "grass widower." His wife left him but he is bound to remain married. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 030773000X, Paperback)

A husband and son abandoned to forge a path alone.
A young woman who sacrificed her dreams.
How will the God of grace and hope help them find their way?
 
At nineteen years old, Old Order Amish Jolene Keim was on the brink of happily-ever-after when everything changed, stealing the future she expected and burdening her with an unbearable decision. For the next ten years, Jolene throws herself into family life—and then she meets Andy Fisher. The horse trainer and father to a sweet nine year-old challenges her and holds up a mirror to issues Jolene has been unwilling to face.
 
Andy is cautious about his deepening friendship with Jolene, but he believes she knows the truth about him – that he is a grass widower. As a man whose wife has abandoned him six years past, he is unable to divorce or remarry according to the Amish ways. Andy has wrestled with God concerning his reality, and he had found peace with the solitary future facing him…until he met Jolene.
 
As Andy and Jolene find themselves confronted by difficult choices, will they trust in God's guidance—or will the allure of their deepening friendship only lead to further temptation?
