the Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall is the third and finally book in the Sister
of the Quilt series. When Soul Mends is
about a former Old Order Amish twenty
year old names Hannah Lapp. Hanna left
her Old Order Amish home of Pennsylvania in disgrace and has made a new home for
herself in Winding Creek, Ohio. Hanna has finally found love again with Martin
Palmer, an Englisher, as they raise his niece and nephew.
Hanna’s sister calls her with the news, her friend Matthew was in a fire and is now in the hospital, Hanna decides she must see him and returns to the Amish community that shunned.
she arrives, she quickly learns her sister, Sarah is dealing with mental issues
and she must stay longer to help her sister.
The only person Hanna can ask to help her sister is her former finace,
Paul Walddell. Hanna still hold on to
the anger and resentment about what happen to her long ago and how she was shunned
by Paul, her father, and her Amish community, but Hanna soon realizes her perception
may not be reality. Hanna and Paul are
forced to revisit their past, and soon learn thing were not as they seemed. Hanna must break through the pain of the past and decide
if she will choose the Englisher world, and the man who brought her
through the pain of her past, or return to her Plain Life and her first love.
did not read the first two books of this series, but was able to follow the
story line completely due to a character list which includes the actions of each
character from the first two books of the series.
really enjoyed reading this book and spent many night reading it to the wee
hours of the morning. I have never read
a book about Amish people and it really open my eyes to their world. Sometimes I wish my life was a little more “plain”.
romantic elements of this book were done very tastefully. My heart ached for Hanna, I wanted her to end
up with Paul, but I was torn to her relationship with Martin and her niece and
nephew. This book is what I think a true
Christian romantic fiction book should be.
