Author: Tricia Goyer
Publisher: Zondervan Books
Every year, young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of
Lydia Wyse, a book editor from
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.
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
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.
