When the Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall
Back to the home she fled in shame, will Hannah heal the wounds of the past? Check out this third book of the Sisters of the Quilt series.
Following the income of a desperate and confusing call from her sister, Hannah Lapp reluctantly returns to the Old Amish community of her Pennsylvania youth.
Having left in disgrace more than two years earlier, she finally has settled into a satisfying position in the Englischer world. She also found affection and a new family with the wealthy Martin Palmer and his children.
However, almost immediately after her arrival in Owl’s Perch, the disapproval of those who ostracized her, including her headstrong father, reopens past wounds.
As she meets again ex-fiancé Paul Waddell to work for her sister Sarah’s mental health, buried truths surface about events during Hannah’s absence. Moreover, she faces an agonizing decision.
Will she pick the Englischer life and the man who restored her hope, or will she accept the call to return to the Plain Life, and, maybe, her first love?
