I just finished the debut novel of Joanne Bischof, titled "Be Still My Soul." If you enjoy Christian fiction, particularly historical romance, you will enjoy this book.
This book is full of tragedy and hardships, but more than that it shows the main character's strength in her faith and forgiveness. It seems like one thing after another goes wrong for Lonnie Sawyer but she clings to her faith when everything else seems hopeless to her.
This book was an easy read - I finished it in two nights of reading - but it was very well written. I see that this is the first book of a series and I would be very interested to see who the focus of the next book is going to be.
I did feel that things tied up just a bit too nicely in the end, but if you're looking for a happy ending, it's definitely there. Like I said, if you enjoy Christian fiction of the historical romance variety, this is a book you will most likely enjoy.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
