The Promise Box by Tricia Goyer

The-Promise-Box

“The Promise Box” by Tricia Goyer was a sweet book.  I instantly like Lydia and I had to wonder where the book was going to take her.  Her is returning to the Amish town that her parents live in to attend the funeral of her mother.  It was hard for her to go back because she left the Amish lifestyle years before.  Once she gets there she decides to stay a few weeks in order to help her father adjust to the loss of her mother.  The author does a great job of making the book come alive and make you feel like you are right there with the characters.  She is a great writer and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

About The Book

With her heart – and her loyalty – on the line, can she let true love in her life?
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! 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?
