My Hope is Found, A Book Review
Gideon O’Riley only ever cared about himself.
Now that Lonnie is his wife, will he ever be worthy of her heart?
While reading Be Still My Soul and Though My Heart is Torn, I invested a lot of time and emotion (read angst) in the stories of Lonnie, Gideon, Jacob, Toby, Jebediah, and Elsie. What a great investment it turned out to be. My Hope is Found, Book 3 in Joanne Bischof's Cadence of Grace Series, delivered the payoff.
Bitter and sweet. Rough and tender. Painful and healing. Genuine. My Hope is Found followed the pattern set in Be Still My Soul and Though My Heart is Torn of devastating circumstances and layered consequences, roller-coaster emotions, and hope reborn.
Joanne does not mask or sugarcoat human nature. Her deft prose provides no easy way out of a character’s sinful choices. No sudden epiphanies. Gideon's was a heart wrenching journey, an honest one that led him deep into grace and redemption.
More, Joanne, please spin more tales of love and grace!
