Publisher's Description

Gideon O’Riley has been given another chance at a life with Lonnie. But will the fight for her heart risk it all over again?
  
After finally finding love with his sweet bride Lonnie, Gideon’s heart was torn when a woman from his past claimed to be his true and rightful wife, forcing him away from his family. God’s merciful hand saw Gideon through the heartache, and with Cassie’s blessing, he is able to return home. But his journey back through the Blue Ridge Mountains will hold a trial he never anticipated.
 
Meanwhile, Lonnie determines to seal off her heart from Gideon, convinced he is lost to her forever. Strengthening her resolve to move on is her growing fondness for the handsome Scotsman, Toby McKee—the young reverend she has come to care for deeply. His proposal of marriage offers a bright future for her and her young son.
 
Yearning to allow joy back into her life, Lonnie must put aside the broken pieces of her heart that still love Gideon. When he returns to find her betrothed to another, he has to place his hope in God, trusting that the One who redeemed their love once can do it again.

"Joanne has hit a home run with her Cadence of Grace series… With memorable characters and struggles aplenty, this is the kind of story that will have readers telling their friends, ’You’ve got to read these books.’"
—Lauraine Snelling, best-selling author of the Red River of the North series and Wild West Wind series

    There are times when we consume novels like potato chips. We gobble them down and go looking for more. This is especially true of series fiction.

    Then there are novels that within the first few paragraphs, you realize you've discovered something special, like a fine dark chocolate. You slow down and savor the words, the emotion, and the depth of the story. My Hope Is Found, the third and final novel in Joanne Bischof's Cadence of Grace series, is that sort of treasure. A tender historical romance set in Appalachia, these characters will steal your heart.

    The current trend is for authors and publishers to produce series in which each book focuses on a new main character, so readers can jump into the story stream with any of the novels. I had to admire Bischof for bravely (and skillfully) tackling a 3-book romance that continues the saga of the same two individuals as they struggle through love and life. Lonnie and Gideon's story deserved three books. All three novels have satisfying conclusions, so you could read them individually, but taken together--they will knock your socks off.

    I savored this last installment of the Cadence of Grace series, knowing how much I'd miss these characters when I reached "The End." I forced myself to read only a chapter or two at each sitting. A few times I found myself reading a line out loud. (Am I the only odd person who does that?) And a few times I found myself whispering a prayer for the characters. Yes, I know...

    I don't tire of Joanne Bischof's writing style. She gives you a pair of sturdy shoes and sends you out into the hills with her characters. For those who have been looking forward to book three in the series, this will not disappoint.

    I found it impossible not to be drawn into the lives of Lonnie Sawyer and Gideon O'Riley in "Be Still My Soul." Joanne Bischof continued to tug on my heart strings in "Though My Heart is Torn" and the conclusion, "My Hope Is Found." The titles themselves are lyrical; and when combined, they capture the essence of this emotional series. After reading the first two stories of love discovered and lost, hope and promise are definitely needed for a satisfying conclusion. Fortunately, Bischof delivers satisfaction and more in an emotionally engaging novel. "My Hope Is Found" avoids redundancy and presents new conflicts and character growth.

    Lonnie and Gideon face challenging choices of the heart, and there are multiple potential paths the plot can take. Their journey to a happy ending mirrors the path they travel between Fancy Gap and Rocky Knob: rocky with peaks, valleys, and moments of beauty. A four-sided love story is bound to be complicated for everyone involved, especially when broken hearts are unavoidable. Bischof creates four characters who are each deserving of happiness. Lonnie and Toby develop a sweet relationship and Toby continuously proves that he is a man of faith, patience, and integrity. Despite her debut as a petulant young woman, Cassie matures into a likable young woman. Although my ultimate hope was that Lonnie and Gideon would reunite, it was a bittersweet hope, knowing that Toby and Cassie were destined for heartache. There seems to be potential for their two stories to continue and intersect, which would be a fitting spin-off from the "Cadence of Grace."

    Throughout the series Gideon undergoes a significant transformation, finally becoming a man of greater faith and character. Lonnie and Gideon have the chance to fall in love a second time in "My Hope is Found." Because Gideon has changed a great deal from the impetuous young man he was when he and Lonnie first married, their second love story is new and fresh. Even sweeter too, considering their history and the pain experienced along the way.

    Joanne Bischof gives readers a compelling series told with realism and a melody of hope and strength that creates a harmony throughout each novel. "Be Still My Soul" and "My Hope Is Found" were my favorites of the series, but I highly recommend each novel and the love story that unfolds.

    My Hope Is Found is a story that will keep you spellbound to the end. Gideon fights his way back to Lonnie only to find she is perhaps lost to another.

    Lonnie knew that Gideon was out of her life forever. She had to move on. When a young Reverend named Toby entered her life they became fast friends. Would they become more than friends?

    With the twist and turns of all the obstacles that Gideon faced and his pent up anger, he lashed out at Toby. He wanted Toby out of Lonnie’s life but Gideon’s hands were tied he wasn’t a free man and had no right to demand Lonnie wait for him.

    Through all that transpires in this story we see God’s hand. Can God take a broken man and restore him with the peace that he has been searching? Will Gideon open his life and allow God in?

    My heart ached for Lonnie, Gideon and Toby. Such a wonderful story of forgiveness, trust, faith, and last but not least God’s redeeming love shining through. Through my tears my heart remembered when I once was lost and surrendered my life to Christ.

    If you are reading this review, please pick up this series by Joanne Bischof. I highly recommend that you do. Gideon and Lonnie’s story will always hold a special place in my heart.

    I won this book on LibraryThing to read and review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.
