Oh....baby. THE LONG AWAITED FINALE of The Cadence Kodak of Grace trilogy by the illustrious, beautiful, amazing Joanne Bischof!
Isn't it everything you wanted? I don't know, is it? Gideon and Lonnie have been through more in their marriage, then not so marriage, and now ... Lonnie's heart might be moving on to a more stable, faith based man and Gideon prays to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and piece them back together with his name as the glue.
If you aren't familiar with this trilogy, you'll journey in book 1 through a marriage forced upon two young people who are anything but lovers. Gideon and Lonnie's rocky start isn't the foundation of true love. When book 2 winds its way to your bookshelf you'll wonder what will happen when Gideon is faced with a wife he didn't know he had...and it's not Lonnie. Broken love, broken souls all in the setting of the Appalachians.
The character depth is so layered it is impossible to do a thorough review. You'll ache with them, cry with them, hate with them, and want to crawl under your covers and never come out again. You'll fall in love right along with Lonnie as she learns to love, loses, then finds love again in a man who embodies what her heart has longed for. And yet--he's not Gideon. You'll learn to despise Gideon in his selfish need, love Gideon for his lost childhood, hurt with Gideon as he learns how God can be Redeemer, and groan with him as hope is ripped from his grasp.
Ugh. There is nothing more I can adequately say without giving away spoiler after spoiler after spoiler.
