The Promise Box

Tricia Goyer The Promise Box Amish Baking Box Giveaway

Author: Tricia Goyer
Publisher: Zondervan Books
May 2013
ISBN: 978-0310335122
Genre: Amish/romance

Every year, young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive 'resident' status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides!

Lydia Wyse, a book editor from Seattle who grew up Amish, returns to the small community of West Kootenai to give comfort to her father after her mother's 
death. She is drawn back to the familiar Amish ways after finding her mother's
most precious possession, a Promise Box of prayers and scripture. What her 
publisher sees, though, is an opportunity for a sensational 'tell-all' book 
about the Amish.

Lydia soon finds herself falling in love with Amish bachelor Gideon Hooley. 
She wants nothing more than to forget her past and look forward to a future 
as an Amish bride. But will the pain of her childhood---and her potential 
betrayal of her community---keep her from committing her whole heart?

THE PROMISE BOX is the second book of Tricia Goyer's Seven Brides for 
Seven Bachelors series, but it easily stands alone. The main characters 
in the first book The Memory Jar are present, but not a main part of the story.

I enjoyed getting to know Lydia and Gideon. He is a strong, confident 
horse-whisperer, and she is a confident editor with a terrible heartbreak.
My heart broke for her. Gideon had secrets too.  The romance is rather flat, 
but the story is so much more than romance. It’s about two people finding 
the truth of God’s love for them. Fans of Amis fiction will enjoy reading 
about this hurting ex-Amish girl as she meets the Amish man of her dreams. 
One of them must make a life altering decision. I had to keep reading to 
find out what happened and how it happened.   $14.99. 336 pages.
