The Promise Box
by Tricia Goyer
Every year, young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive “resident” status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides!
In The Promise Box, the second book of bestselling author Tricia Goyer’s Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, Lydia Wyse, a book editor from Seattle who grew up Amish, returns to the small community of West Kootenai, Montana to give comfort to her father after her mother’s death. She is drawn back to the familiar Amish ways after finding her mother’s most precious possession, a Promise Box of prayers and scripture. What her publisher sees, though, is an opportunity for a sensational “tell-all” book about the Amish.
Lydia soon finds herself falling in love with Amish bachelor Gideon Hooley. She wants nothing more than to forget her past and look forward to a future as an Amish bride. Will the pain of her childhood— and her potential betrayal of her community—keep her from committing her whole heart?
My Thoughts………………I like Amish fiction and Tricia Goyer is one of my favorite authors because she writes Amish fiction so well. I enjoyed Lydia’s story, and I felt for her because she was struggling between her Amish upbringing and the publishing company she has worked for all these years. And what is she do to with Gideon? With a story full of characters that I have grown to love, The Promise Box was one I didn’t want to put down because I just loved everything about it! The characters were realistic, the plot was interesting and the twists and turns throughout the story keeps you reading on, I really like Gideon too, and the attraction between Gideon and Lydia is adorable!
Try this book out, I think you will like it.
