Review of Though My Heart is Torn

Gideon O’Riley must learn to live with the aftermath of someone else’s choices in Joanne Bischofs novel Though My Heart is Torn. I found the book to be pretty powerful. I have not read the first book in the series, so I only know about the history of Gideon, Lonnie, and Cassie through details provided in this book.
Gideon is enjoying his life with wife Lonnie and their infant son Jacob when they are summoned back to their family’s houses. Gideon is informed that he is still married to his first wife, although he had been assured that the marriage had been annulled. He and Lonnie follow the law and separate. What a difficult thing to have to endure. The difference between love and commitment is slight at times. This is an issue that Cassie realizes is troubling. She can have Gideon stay, based on her mistake, or she can let him go back to his love.
I am awed by Gideon’s level of commitment to Cassie even though his heart is not involved. In a culture that has television shows like The Bachelor/Bachelorette, it seems that we see love as instant gratification.
I received an advance reading copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for writing a review and am under no obligation to give a favorable review.
