Book Giveaway: When the Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall

When the Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall is the third book in the Sisters of the Quilt series. When The Soul Mends follows a young girl, who has left Amish faith and community, as she now returns to the community where she grew up to help her sister.

I felt a little lost at the beginning of the book since I had not read the first two books in the series but once I understood some of the background of the characters I began to really enjoy this story and when the last chapter came I was sad it ended.

I don’t know how true to life the lifestyle of the Amish is in her book but it was an eyeopener and I was surprised to find myself wanting to know to more about the community.

I am going to be keeping an eye out for the first two books in this series and if I find them, I will definitely be reading them.

From Amazon:
After receiving a desperate and confusing call from her sister, Hannah Lapp reluctantly returns to the Old Order Amish community of her Pennsylvania childhood.

Having fled in disgrace more than two years earlier, she finally has settled into a satisfying role in the Englischer world. She also has found love and a new family with the wealthy Martin Palmer and the children she is helping him raise. But almost immediately after her arrival in Owl’s Perch, the disapproval of those who ostracized her, including her headstrong father, reopens old wounds.
As Hannah is thrown together with former fiancĂ© Paul Waddell to work for her sister Sarah’s mental health, hidden truths surface about events during Hannah’s absence, and she faces an agonizing decision. Will she choose the Englischer world and the man who restored her hope, or will she heed the call to return to the Plain Life–and perhaps to her first love?
