Fremont’s Promise Kick-Off Package and #giveaway!!!

 


About the Book

Book:  Fremont’s Promise

Author: Kathryn Spurgeon

Genre: Historical

Release date: March 16, 2021



Every time Sibyl visits her mother, she’s criticized, shamed, and leaves in tears. The only thing that can calm her is Fremont’s assurance to move them to a place they can share their faith more freely. While her emotions bounce from frustration to despair, she holds on to the belief that God can help her family.

Fremont, a former hobo, promises to find  a better paying job and spirit his wife away from this unstable family. But only God can work that miracle.

If you love family sagas and drama based on true stories, you will love this book. The 1930s and 40s were a time of difficulty but hope carried them through.

 

Marilyn's thoughts:  This historical fiction is based on the true story of family members the author had contact with. Sybil Trimble Pope and Fremont Pope endured a lot of hardships during their life but discovered their place and calling. The vivid accounts had my emotions going different directions and applauding with Sybil and Fremont when they overcame the struggles. A journey of wanting to please family but also seeking a new beginning for their own lives gave way to hurt feelings and desperation to find a new beginning. The historical times and what families were enduring during the late 1939’s shine throughout this tale. The author penned this historical fiction with creativity and the  heartfelt lives of the characters.

 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit without any obligation to write a positive review. I have expressed my own opinion.
