Gideon O’Riley has been given another chance at a life with Lonnie.
But will the fight for her heart risk it all over again?
I was so glad when this much-anticipated conclusion to Joanne Bischof’s debut series came in the mail.
I dropped the books I was reading (yes, I read multiple at a time) and read this one. But I read this one alone (as in, I didn’t flip flop back and forth between other books). I loved it that much.
A niggle of worry bothered me as I began. After months anticipating the finale to this love story, I wondered if it wouldn’t go my way, if all would turn toward a happily-ever-after at last. Well, I won’t give the ending away, but…
I wasn’t disappointed in the least. This is a beautiful finish to a series that’s touched my heart. Rarely does a heroine become a friend like Lonnie, but her story inspires too much for readers not to fall in love with it.
I admit, I read it slowly, though, sometimes to savor, and sometimes because pain was on the pages and I thought I’d cry if I went on. Hearts are hurting and lives will never be the same, yet God is good and His love never lets us go. That’s the story of the Cadence of Grace series and especially of My Hope is Found.
And really, even though I didn’t like having to put it down sometimes, I think that means it’s heart-piercing in a good way.
Readers of historical fiction who, like me, love plunging into another century where simpler times but just-as-complex lives abound should scoop up this final installment of the Cadence of Grace series. A story that will echo in your soul, Lonnie and Gideon’s love will inspire because even when souls are restless and hearts are torn, hope really can be found.
