I love fiction romance that is based in a time period or cultural group that I know little about. It makes it interesting. So when I got this book, I was elated to find it was blend of the contemporary world and the world of Amish. The main character, Hannah, has felt like her Amish family betrayed her and so she has lived in the “Englischer” world and has made herself a life. She has plans to marry and have a family. Then Hannah receives a confusing phone call form her sister and has to reenter a world she left behind. “When the Soul Mends” by Cindy Woodsmall is a story of hope and forgiveness. It is a beautiful tale of when things go awry and how God can put our shattered dreams back together again.
