Publisher's Description

When Hannah dares to love across the boundaries of tradition, will she lose everything?

Despite being raised in a traditional Old Order Amish family, seventeen-year-old Hannah Lapp desires to break with custom, forgo baptism into the faith, and marry outside the cloistered community. She’s been in love with Mennonite Paul Waddell for three years, and before returning to college for his senior year, Paul asks Hannah to be his wife. Hannah accepts, aware that her marriage will change her relationship with her family forever.

On the evening of their engagement, tragedy strikes and in one unwelcome encounter, all that Hannah has known and believed is destroyed. As she finds herself entangled in questions that the Old Ways of her people cannot answer, Hannah faces the possibility of losing her place in her family, in her community– and in the heart of the man she loves.

When the Heart Cries is book one in the Sisters of the Quilt series.

Author Bio

Cindy Woodsmall and her husband of twenty-eight years have three sons, whom Cindy homeschooled for a number of years. During that time, she was an active member of Gwinnett Christian Home Educators and enjoyed working, laughing, and growing older with women of true character. After attending public high school, her two oldest sons are now in college and her youngest entered public school a few years ago. With two children grown and the youngest settled in a good routine, Cindy began pursuing her desire to write. The first chapter of When the Heart Cries won second place in the Noble Theme Contest–a contest for unpublished authors sponsored by the American Christian Fiction Writers. Cindy and her family live in Georgia.
