I recently has the opportunity to read Be Still My Soul by Joanne Bischof. It is a story about Lonnie and Gideon who are forced to get married after her father witnesses Gideon kiss Lonnie. Lonnie has grown up very poor and with an abusive father and has clung to her faith all her life. Gideon is a handsome ladies' man who is frustrated that he was forced into the marriage. Together they leave the only homes they have ever known to try and find work and a place in a distant town. Along the way discover an elderly couple who helps them work through some of their troubles, but Gideon's past mistakes keep coming back to haunt him and it seems their hearts might never be healed. I thought this was a really good book. Although it seems pretty predictable, there were several twists that kept it interesting. I enjoyed the fact that Lonnie stood strong in her faith and was an example of God's love to her new husband despite the way he treated her. Everything was written very descriptively and I had an easy time picturing the story in my mind. Joanne Bischof did a great job writing this historical fictional and I can't wait to read more by her, especially since this was the first in the Cadence of Grace series.

I received this book for free for review from Waterbrook Multnomah.
