Book Review: My Hope is Found

Image Courtesy of Amazon
"Gideon O’Riley has been given another chance at a life with Lonnie. But will the fight for her heart risk it all over again?
After finally finding love with his sweet bride Lonnie, Gideon’s heart was torn when a woman from his past claimed to be his true and rightful wife, forcing him away from his family. God’s merciful hand saw Gideon through the heartache, and with Cassie’s blessing, he is able to return home. But his journey back through the Blue Ridge Mountains will hold a trial he never anticipated.

Meanwhile, Lonnie determines to seal off her heart from Gideon, convinced he is lost to her forever. Strengthening her resolve to move on is her growing fondness for the handsome Scotsman, Toby McKee—the young reverend she has come to care for deeply. His proposal of marriage offers a bright future for her and her young son.

Yearning to allow joy back into her life, Lonnie must put aside the broken pieces of her heart that still love Gideon. When he returns to find her betrothed to another, he has to place his hope in God, trusting that the One who redeemed their love once can do it again."

Have you ever realized that you're just too wide awake to sleep so you pick up a book thinking you'll read a chapter or two and the next thing you know, it's 4am and you've finished the book? That's what happened to me last night with My Hope is Found. I started reading and the next thing I knew, I had finished the book. The story was one that pulled your heart in while at the same time was like nothing I had ever read before. Gideon's love for his former wife and child warring against Toby's love for this young lady and Lonnie caught right in the middle of it.  This book happens to be the third book in The Cadence of Grace series, but read perfectly as a stand alone. The only thing I found even slightly lacking was that I would have liked more backstory as to how this situation came about and how Lonnie and Gideon ended up with the family she was staying with.

All in all, if you like historical fiction, I would completely suggest that you find this gem and pick it up. Just start reading it earlier in the day....
