Be Still My Soul ~ The Cadence of Grace Series

Joanne Bischof wrote a fascinating story about people of the Blue Ridge mountains, with historical accuracy and in depth characters.


Lonnie Sawyer and Gideon O’Riley are the main characters, although each person in this book is well-thought out, and integral to the entirety of the plot.


Gideon was a self-centered young man, who cared little about anything but his music and his desires.

Lonnie was a shy Appalachian teen, who lived in poverty, with her mother, siblings, and abusive father.

She was kind hearted, and obedient, with a lot of wisdom for her age.  She grew up in the Blue Ridge mountains, and was a devoted daughter and a hard worker.


This book was hard to put down, and I enjoyed it from start to finish. It’s a clean, Christian historical fiction book, with a lot to offer the reader.

I’m looking forward to reading more of Mrs. Bischof’s books.  You can contact her on her website, or on her facebook page: https://joannebischof.com/
