Be Still my Soul - 4.5 stars

Lonnie Sawyer is young and naive. She doesn't even understand the implications involved when she allows Gideon to walk her home one night. As much as she wants to get out from under her father's roof, the only way out isn't one she wants to take.

When she is forced into a marriage she doesn't want, Lonnie's faith is tested more than she ever thought possible.

I have never read any books by Joanne Bischof before, and I found that I really enjoyed this one. One of my favorite things about this book is that is was NOT predictable. One of the most frustrating things about Christian fiction is how predictable it is. You know who is going to end up with who and what mistakes they are going to make before chapter two. In this book, that was not the case. I found myself taken off guard multiple times by the way the book went.

I was encouraged by Lonnie's faith and how she continued to trust God, even when it seemed like the world was against her.

This was a sweet read, I recommend it.

4.5 stars

I recieved a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
