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?
~ My Review ~
Once again, I am in awe.
Intrigue. Suspense. Heartache. Hope. Grace.
Joanne has delivered a hauntingly beautiful sequel to Be Still My Soul. And, might I add, given it the perfect title!
Throughout the book, I felt as though my own heart was being torn. I was on the edge of my seat, breathlessly awaiting the ending. And when it came, I realized just how disappointing it is to only have two out of three books 😛 😉
This book is another favorite!
