~Book Review~ “Though My Heart is Torn” by Joanne Bischof

Cades Cove

Goodreads Synopsis:

“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?”

 

My Review:

This book took me a while to read and when I mean a while it was like 6 months. It took me so long to get into this book. It was very slow at first, but once I got more into the book it got better. I loved the story line because most romances tend to not deal with a man having another wife. This made the book more interesting. The struggles that Gideon and Lonnie went through helped to make the book move along more quickly than the first few chapters of the book. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Blogging for Books.
