A LOVE UNDONE
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?
One of the most romantic books I've ever read. It left me breathless, rocked with the same deep emotions that Andy and Jolene experience. From devastating loss to hesitant hope to crushing defeat and ultimately incredible joy. I was an emotional basket case by the end of this read.
I love Jolene -- for the sacrifices she has made, the spunk that keeps her going, the pure love for her siblings which transcends common sense and harsh reality sometimes. We should all learn to love so completely and unselfishly. I so wanted a happily ever after for her and Woodsmall does deliver but she doesn't make it easy! For Jolene or the reader!
Andy is stalwart and kind and understanding...and unattainable. Oy. The heartache. The push and pull of wills and hearts. The determination to do the right thing at any cost. About broke my heart. To say I was emotionally engaged is an understatement.
An unforgettable story that celebrates God's grace and hope and His unfailing love.
