REVIEW: When the Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall

REVIEW: When the Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall

{About the Book}

Returning to the home she fled in disgrace, will Hannah find healing for the wounds of the past?

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 fiancé 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? 

When the Soul Mends is the third and final book in the Sisters of the Quilt series.

{My Review}

Rating: 3 stars!

Requesting this novel was an opportunity for me to give Amish fiction another chance, because lately Amish fiction has been "meh" for me. Unless it's Beverly Lewis of course. And after I finished When the Soul Mends it sealed the deal that if I am to read any more Amish fiction it will be from only Beverly Lewis. I just could not get into this story and could not feel these characters.
