When the Morning Comes by Cindy Woodsmall - Review

When the Morning Comes by Cindy Woodsmall
softcover, 2007, WaterBrook Press
ISBN 140007293X
336 pages

Cindy Woodsmall once again carries us into the Amish world in her book When the Morning Comes, Book 2 in her series Sisters of the Quilt.

We are brought once again into Hannah Lapp’s life as she flees her Old Order Amish community to find peace and healing in the home of her aunt who was long ago shunned. Plunged into an unknown world Hannah struggles to find her way through the difficulties of education, job hunting, and understanding the Englischer world.

Paul Waddell remains back in Owl Perch eaten away by guilt over his reaction to Hannah’s secret. He tries fruitlessly to find Hannah through the help of her friends and brother. But the Amish life is strict and Hannah’s father refuses to bend causing more anguish to Hannah’s already mentally unstable sister, Sarah.

Hannah begins to find purpose and fulfillment in her new life and friendship with Martin Palmer, but when the past finds her will she face her past and return home?

Ms. Woodsmall once again makes it hard to leave Hannah’s story and leaves us waiting impatiently for the next chapter of her life.
