Wow. That is the main thought that I am left with after finishing this magnificent book. Cindy Woodsmall has done an amazing job with her debut series and I cannot wait to read more from this fabulous author. I enjoyed the first book and really was full of emotion for the characters. I cannot tell you how many times throughout the series I was brought to tears or screaming in anger when the characters would not for themselves.
When the Soul Mends is an incredible book about such depth with a vast amount of heart wrenching drama that is so real and so needed to be read. You could read this book alone, but I strongly suggest you start from the beginning, because only after going through When the Heart Cries to the When the Morning Comes can you really appreciate the beauty and fully healing affects of When the Soul Mends. Can you see how perfect these titles are?
I'm practically speechless, but I want to ramble about how great this book is. The characters are so real, as are their troubles and joys. Cindy really brings you into an Amish/Plain/Englisher world and shows the good, as well as the bad in all cases. After falling into their world in the first two novels and screaming for answers with the cliff hangers those two left me in, Cindy has answered everything in more depth and better than I ever could have imagined. I'm completely satisfied with this series and you can bet it is on my keeper shelf.
I really liked this book although I felt the beginning was slow and hard to get into to. I have really enjoyed this series and wish they were continuing it with other people in the book like Sarah but this was the least favorite for me of the series. I felt the ending was good and the writer honestly changed my mind during the book about what I wanted for Hannah.
I loved this final book of the "Sisters of the Quilt" series. Cindy Woodsmall tied up all the loose ends very neatly from the first two books along with this one. If you have read Wanda Brunstetter and Beverly Lewis, you would find Cindy's novels very similar. This was a quick read for me, and I was so sorry to be done with it. I will definitely keep this author on my "must read" list.
Hands down, this one is my favorite of the entire series! Cindy Woodsmall is definitely a new favorite author!
A great story of an amish girl who deals with bad experience. Gives a insightful look of the amish society. A great read.
