Publisher's Summary

One minute Joanna Schrock was arguing with her parents, and the next her parents' lives were claimed in a hit-and-run buggy accident. Her body is broken, but her heart is in even deeper pain - after all, how do you cope with your parents' deaths when your last words were spoken in anger?

After an extended stint in a physical rehabilitation center, she re-nters her Amish life. But nothing is the same - not even her feelings for Andrew Beiler. Joanna has loved Andrew since the age of 12. She is thrilled when Andrew wants to get married, but she wonders whether it's love he's feeling or pity. As the couple's wedding date approaches, Joanna isn't overcome with the deep joy she was hoping to find; instead she's wracked with anxiety and guilt.

Joanna hears God whispering to her, "Be strong and courageous," but she's afraid that courage looks a lot like walking away from her dreams and into the plan of her Heavenly Father. If Joanna takes the first step toward healing, will it cost her everything she's ever wanted? Or could God be changing the desires of her heart?

Excellent Story

I loved the first book in this series and I loved this one as well. I would say to listen to them in order. The stories are raw and genuine, tackling tough issues. The narrator did a great job as well! looking forward to the next book in the series!

2nd book in the series did not disappoint!

Oh I couldn't wait to listen to this second book and I was enthralled. My husband was so aggravated because I barely listened to him and all I could do was listen to the book! :) Just finished this one and on to the next! Great author with well-developed characters and storylines.

Absolutely beautiful romantic literary fiction well worth reading.

This was a great story that I very much enjoyed reading. I think my favorite part was when Andrew and Joanna went to visit Cameron, the man that played a part in Joanna‘s parents death. It is a beautiful story of forgiveness and yes, I would have to say redemption as well. I also really like the part where the sisters are talking amongst themselves regarding pressing charges on Cameron. This whole novel will have you pondering things in your own life and also crying. It is a real tearjerker but it is a masterpiece of a story.

a story about maturity understanding and love

I really enjoyed this Second this second book. I am now going to listen to the 3rd. I love the love story of dealing with blaming herself and dealing with being in love and becoming more mature in the relationship. And having a forgiving heart and worshiping God and putting him first.

My 2nd Kathleen Fuller, I hope to read many more!

What made the experience of listening to An Unbroken Heart the most enjoyable?

Real world problems, suspense, good follow up to the first in the trilogy, characters challenged by living out their faith.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Andrew was my favorite character. I enjoyed the author's working out his inner dialogue, how he tried to come to terms with wanting to be a good husband having grown up without a father.

Have you listened to any of Angela Brazil’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I thought that the narration perfectly matched Amish intonation, superb performance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!
