A Promise Kept

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.

My Thoughts On The Book:   I am a big fan of Robin Hatcher and love reading her books. This particular book really touched a heartstring and made it very special.  I loved the interwoven story of Allison's great aunt, Emma. Both stories illustrate how God works in His own way and His own time. There are no such things as unanswered prayers, they are just not always answered the way we thought they should be, as Allison finds out.  The stories lesson is to keep praying for those you love and be grateful for those who prayed for you and yours. Prayers make a difference. God hears your prayers. This book is a definite addition to my library for a future re-read and a group book study.  I cannot wait to share and discuss this book with my book lover friends.
