Though My Heart is Torn by Joanne Bischof

"Though My Heart is Torn" by Joanne Bischof is the second book in the Cadence of Grace series.

This heart-wrenching story is about Gideon O'Riley and his wife Lonnie... and his other wife Cassie.

Gideon thought Cassie had taken the papers they both signed to have their secret marriage annulled.  But she didn't.  When Cassie's father and brothers found out about the marriage and that her reputation was ruined, they were determined that Gideon make it right.

One problem, though.  Gideon is married Lonnie.  And to make it even more interesting, they have a son, Jacob.  Neither wants to split their family apart, but unfortunately the law is not on their side.

I have not read the first book in the series, "Be Still My Soul", and I think it would have been easier for me to get into the story if I had.  That said, once I was engaged, I found the story to be riveting, maddening, and hard to put down.  As I read, I couldn't help but feel for the loss of Gideon's and Lonnie's family all while being challenged by the selfishness of Cassie and her family to not care about the future of little Jacob.  Interestingly, in telling my husband about the story, he agreed with the law...

I really enjoyed the story and plan to read the first book as well as the last one.  I have to know what happens to Lonnie and Gideon!  On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate this book a solid 4.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest opinion.
