Be Still My Soul is the beginning of a new series by Joanne Bischof. It’s the story of a young couple who marry under threat and then learn to love each other. Both the husband and wife have been raised in difficult families, and so they think that it’s too be expected for the husband to treat his wife badly and repeat that in this story…at least in the beginning.

This book is very well-written, which makes it enjoyable to read. It’s nice to read something that gives hope and shows God working things out to bring about a happy ending.

However, I’d be very cautious about recommending it to anyone. Often abusive marriages don’t work out just because someone keeps trusting God and believing that things will get better and God is watching over them. I agree, there are times when God calls us to stay in a bad situation, but there are also times when God calls us to leave. I would hate for anyone to read this and cite it as proof that they should stay with someone who’s physically hurting them or their children because their spouse “might change.”

I received a free copy of this book from Multnomah Books in exchange for an honest review.
