A Promise Kept
- United States
More informationGod was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. 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 expecting a baby within a year. Her cup had bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy was 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 their marriage. Now it was clear that she'd misunderstood.
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. 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 heart broken woman a lot 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? For a woman accustomed to being someone else's savior, that will be even harder than it sounds.
Alluding to a personal history never before revealed, A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher's most intimate work yet and an emotionally-charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers - in His own time and His own ways.
