A Love Undone Review

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?

A Love Undone is the newest release by Cindy Woodsmall. While its not my favorite of hers I still enjoyed it. The characters stand out and are easy to become attached to. The plot to A Love Undone was unlike any I have read. I used to feel like if you have read one or two Amish fiction books then you had read them all (every Amish book I picked up seemed to have the same plot). But now as I start to find new Amish authors (or new-to-me ones) I have fallen in love with this genre. Cindy is one of the authors that made that happen. I feel like when I pick up one of her book I will always get something new. That being said I really did enjoy A Love Undone. The only thing I wish was that she had spent a little more time on the end, it seemed to me that it ended a little... um quickly? I don't think that's the right word. I don't know but, I just felt like I wanted it to end in a different way or something. But all in all A Love Undone is definitely worth your time.

4 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that you will be sure to enjoy. 

I received a free copy of this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
