Operation Read Your Shelves: A Love Undone

One of my favorite things about reading is that I get to learn about different cultures and people.  One of my favorite cultures that I have grown up reading about in fictional books is the Amish culture.  I have been reading books about the Amish for as long as I can remember and it has probably been the one my favorite topics ever.

So when I came across A Love Undone by Cindy Woodsmall, I knew I would devour the book.  And that I did.  This is the first book I have read by Cindy Woodsmall and she took a different take on the Amish culture than I had read before.  I loved her writing style and that I was able to learn about a different part of the culture presented.

In this novel you explore love, loss, and God's unfailing grace.  Throughout the whole book you are rooting for the main characters, but have no idea how they will make their love work.  I loved the trust they had in the Lord, even through the many tragedies they faced.  It was a great encouragement to me to see even through fictional characters how trust in the Lord always turns out better than trust in ourselves or others. 

If you love reading about different cultures, especially the Amish, then this is a great book to read.  It will warm your heart and make you cry all at the same time!

Last month through this link-up I discovered Blogging for Books.  Bringing together my two most favorite hobbies?? Hello this is a must for me!  I received this book for free in exchange for a review.  All opinions here are my own.

I've never read Amish fiction before but I think I might have to! I've been wondering about it for a while, but haven't been brave enough to give it a try.

You totally should! This book was absolutely great! My favorite author for Amish fiction thought is Beverly Lewis. I grew up reading her books and loved them!
