“A moving debut! More than just a love story, Be Still My Soul takes compelling characters on a journey of redemption in the dangerous beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Joanne Bischof’s masterful and compassionate insight into human nature won me over. I can’t wait for the second book in the Cadence of Grace series!”
—Sarah Sundin award-winning author of the Wings of Glory series
Shy and quiet, Lonnie Sawyer has never kissed any boy, let alone the one who has mother’s whispering warnings in their daughter’s ears and father’s loading shotguns. When that one kiss seals her fate, she finds herself wedded to a man who does not love her. Yet God promises that His eye is on the Sparrow and clinging to that hope, Lonnie takes one brave step in front of the other and the Lord’s blessings unfold in her life.
Handsome ladies man and bluegrass musician Gideon O’Riley has always wanted one thing–his own satisfaction. But as his heart softens towards his young bride with the strong, quiet, faith, he begins to yearn for more; longing to become the man she deserves and to better understand the God who can save him from a life of destruction.
