A Promise Kept by Robin Lee Hatcher

A Promise Kept by Robin Lee Hatcher reminds me of when I fell in love with this author, and why. A touching story that's reminiscent of events in her own life, it's one that is sure to keep the reader remembering it for some time. A reminder that marriage vows are sacred and that God can work miracles of all kinds.
I liked that this story took place over three different time periods, it was written well and didn't confuse me with the back and forth as books sometimes do.
This book has the ability to provide hope for those who may think their situation is hopeless.

This book was provided for review by BookSneeze.

About the book:

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.
