Litfuse Publicity Book Tours Presents: Promise Kept by Robin Lee Hatcher

A Promise Kept
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.

 About 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 Review:
A story of love and romance, marriage, divorce, heartbreak, and some healing. Above all listening to what God is telling you, not what you want.
The book opens with Allison try to go on with her life after her divorce. She has moved to Aunt Emma's cabin located in the mountains of Idaho. You will feel like you are walking the wilderness trails, taking in the beauty. We also search the attic, and are there to find the pictures, and the journals....what a gift.
With the journals we open another love story, well hidden in the family, and most don't seem to know about it. There is also a bridal gown..whose?? It does have significance, and we will see it again. Allison's daughter, Meridith has come to accept the divorce and loves both parents. Through her there seems to be a healing.
Through all of the stories, and there are more than one, we find God's hands leading, all they have to do is listen. The author's note at the end of the book, really moved me. Thank you Robin.

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
