A Promise Kept
A heartwarming WWII historical from award-winning author Cara Putman:
Can new love endure heartbreak?
Josie Wilson’s newlywed life is perfect—until her hopes and dreams are shattered by a miscarriage. She’s not sure her wounded heart will ever heal. Then Art asks her to open their home to a distant cousin who’s been evacuated from England. Will the child open her heart? Or will she remain closed off to the prospect of future pain?
Art Wilson adores his bride, but he never anticipated how challenging marriage could be. When grief over the baby they’ve lost forms a chasm between him and his new wife, he wonders if he has made a horrible mistake. Why can’t Josie support him and understand his long hours are necessary as the industry is reeling in the early days of World War II?
Will the ravages of war and personal grief tear Josie and Art apart, or will they keep the promises made to each other on their wedding day?
My thoughts: A PROMISE KEPT is the story of Katherine's (Kat in a Promise Forged) big sister. A PROMISE KEPT is more women's fiction than it is romance, as Josie and Art are married throughout the book and the story is more about how she adjusts to married life and how she wants children and how she supports or not her husband in a new job, a new home, a new city, away from family.
I liked the way Josie kept in contact with her family. I wish Art would've done the same for his. As a mother of a married son I know how much it hurts when they go the extra mile for her family but you don't have a clue what is happening in your son's life. So I felt really sorry for Art's mom. His grandfather, however, seemed to be very sharp and kept his eye on his family and I love the way this book ended with grandfather's magic touch.
This isn't a romance nor romantic suspense, but it is women's fiction.
I received a copy free and have no obligation to review. Stay tuned for review on A Promise Born.
