Book Review: A Promise Kept

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book: 

God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. But neither her husband nor her marriage had been saved.

What had become of His promise?

Tony Kavanagh had been Allison's dream-come-true. They were in love within days, engaged within weeks, married and pregnant within a year. Her cup bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy had been extinguished by unexpected trials.

The day Allison issued her husband an ultimatum, she thought it might save him. She never expected he would actually leave. She was certain God had promised to heal; it was clear that she'd misunderstood.

Now, living in the quiet mountain cabin she inherited from her single, self-reliant Great Aunt Emma, Allison must come to terms with her grief and figure out how to adapt to small town life. But when she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emma's attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman surprisingly like herself.

As Allison reads the incredible story of Emma's life in the 1920s and 1930s, she is forced to ask a difficult question: Does she really surrender every piece of her life to the Lord?

Drawing from her own heart-wrenching story of redemption, A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher's emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers---in His own time and His own ways.

Meet the author: 

Robin is the author of 65+ novels and novellas. Her home is in Idaho, where she spends her time writing stories of faith, courage, and love; pondering the things of God; and loving her family and friends.

My Opinion
This is a modern day fiction with a little historical fiction mixed in and I absolutely LOVE that! Both stories are both well written and together they make one GREAT Book!

I loved watching Allison grow after pain and hurt after her marriage ends and become a strong, independent woman with a renewed and stronger faith. Her great-aunt's diary is a great helper along the way and I loved watching both women's stories unfold!

I also love that you can really tell that this story is told from the heart and from personal experiences that Robin Lee Hatcher has felt and gone through in her own life. It makes this book very personal, emotional. and well written and it may be the best book I have ever read by her!

But most of all, I LOVE the ending....BUT I can't ruin will just have to read it! :)
