Though My Heart is Torn - Joanne Bischof

About the book, from the publisher...

Gideon O’Riley has two wives—but he doesn’t know it.
Settling into a simple life in the majestic Blue Ridge mountains, Lonnie and Gideon O’Riley have finally found happiness after the rocky start to their marriage. The roguish bluegrass musician has fallen in love with his gentle wife and the God she serves, and Lonnie rests secure in his tenderness for her and their young son. A heartless ruse interupts their peace, bringing them back to Rocky Knob—and forces them to face the claims of Cassie Allan, a woman who says she is Gideon’s rightful wife.

As Gideon wades into the depths of his past choices, Lonnie is stunned by the revelations. She has no choice but to navigate this new path, knowing that surviving the devastating blow will take every ounce of strength  she has.

While Gideon’s guilt  and his bitterness towards Cassie threatens to burn up his fledgling faith, Lonnie wrestles to find the courage to trust the God who brought them together in the first place. Will their hard-earned love be able to conquer all?

Lonnie only wanted her husband’s love. Now that he belongs to another, can she surrender Gideon to a God with a bigger plan? 
My thoughts...

Oh...my...goodness!  I can only imagine what I would think if another women showed up claiming to be married to my husband!  What a topic for a novel though!  

While I don't remember reading the first book in this series, I must have at some point because parts of the back cover sounded familiar to me.  With that being said, I don't think I ended up being too lost or confused without knowledge of book one.

Bischof is an excellent author that writes in such an easy flowing manner, and that means a lot to this reviewer!  If I'm spending too much time stumbling over sentences, or not following the dialogue, you can be sure I am contemplating abandoning the ship!  But so not the case with Though My Heart is Torn!  

If you're looking for a super fast read, and would love to hear how Gideon get out of this mess, then this 4 Star book just may be for you!

**I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion**
