Book Review: "An Unbroken Heart" by Kathleen Fuller
Joanna has loved Andrew since she was 12. She thinks he loves her, too, but doesn't seem to be making a move. She gets into an argument with her parents over it and it is the last thing they talk about as a car crashes into them and injures Joanna and kills her parents.
Andrew loves Joanna, but he doesn't want to rush her, but when she is almost taken away from him, he proposes. She agrees, but seems to be holding back.
Joanna should be glad she is finally getting what she wants, but she isn't sure Andrew didn't propose out of pity. How will they find their way through the chaos with an unbroken heart?
"An Unbroken Heart" is the 2nd book in the "An Amish of Birch Creek Novel" series. I sort of felt like I was coming into the story partway through. If I had read the first book I am sure I would know more of what was going on. I felt Joanna's confusion over her sister's "secret" about her marriage since I didn't know what it was either (It was in book 1). This book follows Joanna Schrock and Andrew Beiler, who are the main characters in the story. It also follows Naomi and Irene Beiler (Andrew's mom and sister) and Cameron Crawford who caused the accident that killed Joanna's parents. I think that the parts with Irene may carry over into later books in the series, otherwise, I'm not really sure what they were for. Characters grew and learned about themselves and God through the book.
"An Unbroken Heart" is available in paperback:
