Book Review- When the Soul Mends

I just finished reading my first fiction book for review. I love reading fiction books. I recieved it yesterday at 3pm and am posting the review just about 24 hours later;) Yes! I have neglected a few chores today!

When the Soul Mends is a captivating story about an old order amish young women forced to make choices: the choice to forgive, the choice to return to the older order amish life she was raise in or remain in the modern world, the choice between the man who she once thought to be her soul mate and the man who helped rescue her.

The book is captivating. It takes you on an emotional journey and helps you ponder your own issues of grappling for forgiveness. Woodsmall does an excellent job of leading you on the adventure without giving away clues to how it will all resolve. I felt just as torn as Hannah (the main character) and found myself unable to put the book down without reaching the ending. The authors description of the simplicity of the old order life in contrast to the excitement of the modern world had me wishing I could live them both myself. She took me on an emotional and romantic journey that I thoroughly enjoyed each step of the way.

I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

  1. That's a great deal -a book for a review! How were you able to arrange that?

    Your review makes me want to read it, and I don't typically read that genre. Nice job!
