Описание

One minute, Joanna Schrock was arguing with her parents, and the next, her parents' lives were claimed in a hit-and-run buggy accident. Her body is broken, but her heart is in even deeper pain-after all, how do you cope with your parents' deaths when your last words were spoken in anger?



After an extended stint in a physical rehabilitation center, she re-enters her Amish life. But nothing is the same-not even her feelings for Andrew Beiler. Joanna has loved Andrew since the age of twelve. She is thrilled when Andrew wants to get married, but she wonders whether it's love he's feeling, or pity. As the couple's wedding date approaches, Joanna isn't overcome with the deep joy she was hoping to find; instead, she's wracked with anxiety and guilt.



Joanna hears God whispering to her, Be strong and courageous, but she's afraid that courage looks a lot like walking away from her dreams and into the plan of her Heavenly Father. If Joanna takes the first step toward healing, will it cost her everything she's ever wanted? Or could God be changing the desires of her heart?

    Everytime I read a book from this author, I know it is going to be an unforgettable story that is filled with love, forgiveness and a story that is mesmerizing. I love how the author develops the characters with a soft and gentle spirit about them. Joanna is in the buggy with her parents discussing her desire to marry Andrew. The feelings were a bit strained between her and her parents over the marriage. Her mother was explaining why she thought Joanna was not ready for marriage when suddenly a car hits their buggy. Joanna's life is suddenly turned upside down. She finds herself with a broken pelvis and cuts on her face . She is in for a long recovery and as she also has to deal with the loss of her parents. As she recovers in the rehabilitation center she feels hopeless, empty inside and alone in the world. Her self worth became very low the longer her recovery took. Andrew is very upset with all Joanna is going through. He doesn't want to lose her and knows that she is the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with. He proposes to her and she accepts it with a bit of uncertainty. She knew she should be overjoyed, but the feelings are mixed . As her wedding day arrives , will she follow through and marry Andrew? Is Joanna struggling with her parents death? Can she find hope in God to show her how precious she is? The author does a great job of showing the emotions, and struggles that Joanna goes through. I'm sure we have all felt unhappy with ourselves at one time. Joanna must learn that God sees her as a beautiful young woman with no scars. In her journey with God, she will learn to be strong and find courage to overcome her emotional feelings. It is hard to deal with losing someone when the last words exchanged were in anger. Can Joanna forgive herself for the angry words she said just before the accident? The book is an emotional journey that will keep readers glued to the story. It is another great story by a very gifted author. I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild for an honest review.

    As this story opens we find an impetuous Joanna Shrock as she proposes to the young fellow she has had a crush on since she was a student in Amish school.While she is telling her parents as they travel by their buggy, her mother tries to persuade her that she is not yet ready for marriage, when the unthinkable happens. When Joanna wakes from her nightmare, only to find she wasn’t dreaming, she suffers from the accident, but most of all from the loss of her parents.Andrew was shocked when Joanna asked him to marry him to marry her, but when he almost lost her he decides he wants go through with the marriage.Now Joanna is having a hard time, she is hurting both physically and mentally, and we wonder if she really is ready for the wedding to go on. In the last book we met sister Sadie, and followed her romance with Arden, and they are now married, will Joanna be able to find the same happiness, will she even allow herself to move on?We also meet the man responsible for the devastation that has touched these young women’s lives, and when you put a face on someone, will we still think of him as a monster? Would you be willing to forgive someone like him, and when you hear his story and hear about his life, things become even harder. Throughout all of this hardship, God is working with everyone; he is there for them to lean on and if they will listen, follow the way he wants them to go.There is one more sister in this family, and so I am hoping that there is another awesome book.I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.

    An Unbroken Heart by Kathleen Fuller is the second book in An Amish of Birch Creek series. Joanna Schrock was in a buggy accident with her parents. Her parents did not make it and Joanna has a long recovery ahead of her. Joanna is especially upset because she was arguing with her parents at the time of the accident (about wanting to marry Andrew Beiler). Joanna broke her pelvis and has a severe laceration on her cheek. It will be a long recovery. Andrew was so upset when he heard about the accident. When he visits Joanna in the rehabilitation center, he proposes. Andrew could not imagine his life without Joanna. Joanna accepts and it is full speed ahead to the wedding. Joanna has doubts, but she does not voice them aloud to anyone. Then when she starts to walk down the aisle, Joanna collapses. She tells Andrew that she cannot marry him. Joanna realizes that she was not ready and this helps her recovery. However, Joanna still loves Andrew. Will she be able to convince him of her love and get his forgiveness? What lessons will Joanna learn on her journey?An Unbroken Heart was not as good as the first book in An Amish of Birch Creek. I was not fond of Joanna (her attitude got on my nerves after a short time). I found her to be extremely immature, full of self-doubts, and she had trouble communicating her thoughts and feelings (which leads to confusion and conflict). An Unbroken Heart can be read as a stand-alone novel (but the first novel is really good). An Unbroken Heart is an easy to read book (the author has a nice writing style) that can be finished in just a few hours (it contains 299 pages). An Unbroken Heart is a Christian novel, but it is not over-the-top (or in your face). The book does contain a good message about forgiveness. I give An Unbroken Heart 3.5 out of 5 stars. It was a middling novel (satisfactory or okay). I am, though, looking forward to the next book in An Amish of Birch Creek series which will tell Abigail’s story (the last sister). I received a complimentary copy of An Unbroken Heart from NetGalley and BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
