Though My Heart Is Torn Review

Gideon O’Riley has two wives—but he doesn’t know it. 
Settling into a simple life in the majestic Blue Ridge mountains, Lonnie and Gideon O’Riley have finally found happiness after the rocky start to their marriage. The roguish bluegrass musician has fallen in love with his gentle wife and the God she serves, and Lonnie rests secure in his tenderness for her and their young son. A heartless ruse interupts their peace, bringing them back to Rocky Knob—and forces them to face the claims of Cassie Allan, a woman who says she is Gideon’s rightful wife.
As Gideon wades into the depths of his past choices, Lonnie is stunned by the revelations. She has no choice but to navigate this new path, knowing that surviving the devastating blow will take every ounce of strength  she has.
While Gideon’s guilt  and his bitterness towards Cassie threatens to burn up his fledgling faith, Lonnie wrestles to find the courage to trust the God who brought them together in the first place. Will their hard-earned love be able to conquer all? 
Lonnie only wanted her husband’s love. Now that he belongs to another, can she surrender Gideon to a God with a bigger plan?

 Though My Heart Is Torn by Joanne Bischof is the second book in The Cadence of Grace series. It was just simply... Amazing. Though I shouldn't be surprised because after reading the first book, Be Still My Soul, I was amazed by it too. I just didn't think it could get better. But once again an author has proved me wrong. I found myself crying throughout the book. And not just soft little sniffles, sometimes it was a full on sob, snot and all…Okay that was a little TMI. But seriously, Though My Heart Is Torn brought me to tears in a good ‘I’m living in the book’ way. I can’t wait to see what’s in store next for Lonnie and Gideon in the next book. But if it’s anything like the first two I know I’m in for a treat…And I’ll be prepared with Kleenex next time! 

5 out of 5. An Amazing Afternoon Snack! 

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
