Light Shines on Promise Lodge (Promise Lodge #5) by Charlotte Hubbard






With autumn in full brilliant color, the Amish of Promise Lodge celebrate a successful harvest—and a community rooted in deep friendship. But as cold winds of judgment cast doubt and fear, residents will need each other more than ever to weather the storm . . .

For abandoned wife Annabelle Beachey, Promise Lodge is a refuge where she's gained confidence and self-sufficiency. But she and others are dismayed when newly arrived Bishop Clayton King claims the  community is too progressive and sets out to change its ways. Worse, her husband, Phineas returns,  expecting her to give up her faith as he has. And he won't leave Promise Lodge without her . . .

But little by little, Annabelle's determination and new forthrightness make Phineas realize his  mistakes—and truly hear his wife for the first time. Meanwhile, Annabelle finds herself feeling  compassion—and even renewed love—for her newly humble, more caring husband. And as Bishop Clayton's attempt to control Promise Lodge threatens everything its residents have built, Phineas and Annabelle must work together with unshakeable courage to save their new home—and their opportunity for forever happiness.

About The Author





Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard (a.k.a. Naomi King) writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle in her new Seasons of the Heart series. Like her heroine, Miriam Lantz, Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people—to share hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle, and the foundation of her earlier Angels of Mercy series. She’s a deacon, a dedicated church musician and choir member, and when she’s not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie.

My Review




This book has been in my kindle for a week or so, and not that I didn't want to read it, I knew I would love it, and loved the anticipation.
This story did not disappoint, and loved being back at the Lodge, and reuniting with old friends, and there is a bonus of meeting some of the folks we haven't been with for quite awhile [previous books]!
Trouble is brewing here with the arrival of a mysterious Bishop, how will these people respond? Then there is a character that I previous did not like, that is now refreshing, and might just find a guy that is really interested in her.
The worse part of this book is having it end, I loved this peaceful community, and the author does a great job of bringing it alive, and I enjoy looking around and just being here!

I received this book through the Publisher Kengsington, and was not required to give a positive review.
