Be Still My Soul is Joanne Bischof's first book and she has made an instant fan out of me. I love her writing style and she had me interested from the get go! Her descriptive way of storytelling makes it easy to picture in your mind the events that transpire. I can't wait to read more of her work. This is book one from the Cadence of Grace Series and I am so excited to see what the next book is like!
