The Promise (The Amish of Cedar Grove #3) by Patricia Davids

Sometimes love is where you least expect it…

Sarah Yoder has always dreamed of having a family of her own. But with no eligible prospects, she’s beginning to worry—until the Rabor brothers return to Cedar Grove. Sarah and Isaac Rabor walked out together the summer they were sixteen, so perhaps he’s the answer to her prayers. The only trouble is that she can’t seem to catch his eye. If only she had a little help…

Levi Rabor has no interest in marriage. When his mother reveals her plans to deed the family farm to the first son who marries, Levi has a plan to ensure that it isn’t him: a pretend courtship with Sarah to nudge his competitive brother in her direction. Once Isaac is married, Levi can leave town to train racehorses—just as he wanted. So why does Sarah—with her vision of a peaceful, happy life on the land—make his heart gallop? Perhaps the answer lies in how sweetly surprising love can be.


About The Author

I was born and raised in Northcentral Kansas. I'm a farmer's daughter, but I now make my home in the city of Wichita. I'm an RN. Neonatal nursing has been the main focus of my career. What can I say? I love babies. I was invited to the highschool graduation of a baby I took care of. Talk about making me feel old!

In June of 2011 I became a widow after my husband of 36 years and 11 months died from multiple brain tumors. It was a very sad time, but thanks to the three f's, my faith, my family and my friends, life is moving forward. I have four brothers, one daughter and two grandchildren who all work at making me feel loved.


My Review

Can what you have been dreaming about and wishing for since you were 16 really be your hearts desire, or when it becomes reality, maybe it isn't what you really want? The author has given us this premise with Sarah Yoder, a young Amish woman who suddenly is granted her wish, but now sees something she likes better, a brother of the man she thought was her answer or maybe he is?
We get to walk with these people as they go about their everyday lives, whether they are canning beans, training horses, or fishing, we are there. There is also romance in the air, and surprises are also here and your are going to be page turning to find them.
We are also reunited with characters from past reads, but you will not be lost, this can be read alone, but you will want to pick up the past two books!
This read will warm your heart, there is a lot of caring and compassion here, and the love of God!

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