"Be Still My Soul "is set in the Appalachian hills of Virginia. . Having been raised by an abusive father Lonnie Sawyer is looking forward to her 18th birthday, when she plans to move in with her Aunt Sarah. Lonnie is very shy and is made to marry Gideon O'Riley after her father thinks she has been compromised. Gideon has a lot of growing up to do and finds himself in situations that could have been avoided. Can he learn from these life lessons?
"Be Still My Soul" is a coming of age look into the lives of Lonnie and Gideon. They meet Elsie and Jebediah, an elderly couple who find the time and patience to take them in. Lonnie holds tight to her faith throughout the book. There are many lessons to be learned in their story. I would love to have my grand daughters read this book and plan to buy them a copy.
Lonnie was comforted by God's word many times. Examples of these are: "Fear not for I have redeemed thee, I have called they by thy name; thou art mine." "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers; they shall not overflow thee. When thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned."
I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 and look forward to Joanne's next book in The Candace Of Grace Series. I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 14.
Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers provided me with a complimentary e-book for review purposes. I was not paid to review this book and give my honest opinion for each book I read.
