A Love Undone
by Cindy Woodsmall

book cover of 

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?

Andy is an honarable man, who fears the Lord and lives according to the Amish order. But he has a problem that is unheard of in their community. His wife had left him, and since divorce is not an option for the amish, he cannot remarry.

Jolene is a young woman, who was preparing to marry her sweetheart before a tragedy took both of her parents lives.. Now she has to make a tough choice between what she wants and what is best for her family.

But she has secrets that she's not sure how to bring to light.

What will happen to these two great characters when they get drawn to each other, but can't have a relationship other than friendship? Even their friendship is challenged by the Bishop.

There are plenty of twists and turns within the book, and I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen. This is a book that is so different from most Amish books that I found that it was hard to put down.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
