A Love Undone

Book description:  "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?"

My review:  A Love Undone is another great Amish novel.  I loved the characters and enjoyed catching up a little with characters from a previous novel.  This isn't a story that you just enjoy.  This is a story that will make you feel like part of the family.  You will be pulled into the lives of the characters and will hate to see the story come to an end. There are unexpected events and deep emotions throughout the book that will keep you turning pages.  The only part of the book I didn't like was the ending.  For such a deeply emotional book, the ending was rushed.  The book wasn't so long that the ending couldn't have been a little longer.  I know I could have kept reading since I hated to see it come to an end.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
