Imagine having your whole life planned out and a wedding a week away to the most fantastic person you have ever met and then one single tragic element leaves your happily ever after shattered and you wondering what is going to happen next. In the novel, A Love Undone by Cindy Woodsmall, we meet Jolene, an Amish girl who was living on cloud nine until tragedy strikes living her siblings in her care and her young groom questioning if he really wants to marry her because of the responsibility that comes along raising several children from toddlers to teenagers. Jolene is heartbroken and torn on what her next move should be.
Flash forward 10 years and some healing later, Jolene has settled into her life as the sister/mother of her siblings and has almost resigned to the fact that she may never meet the man of her dreams and settle down with a family since she is nearing 30 years old and well past the age that most single girls in the Amish community get married. Her life is content and she has accepted the fact of her situation, until an abused horse rescue throws her life a curve ball.
Andy is a grass widower and father to a young boy. Since his wife has left him, he realizes according to the Amish faith, he is unable to marry again unless a divorce or death occurs, and after 9 years, he is beginning to doubt that will happen. His world is shaken when he goes to help with the horse rescue and meets Jolene and woman who gives him hope and makes him long for love again, but how can he when he is still legally married.
A Love Undone will have you quickly turning pages to see what happens next. Can two individuals love again and if so, how will it be possible given the situation? A book that shows that tragedies can lead to good and that sometimes love comes when we least expect it. Tenderly written and cleverly crafted, this book is a read that you are going to want to check out.
