Overview

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 hadbeen 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 hadpromised 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 Keptis Robin Lee Hatcher s emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers in His own time and His own ways.

"Hatcher s latest is an uplifting and heartwarming story about the power of faith to set people free from the pain of their pasts. Recommended where Tracie Peterson s books (All Things Hidden;The Miner s Lady) are popular." Library Journal, STARRED Review

Hatcher (Where the Heart Lives series) departs from her more recent historical novels for this contemporary exploration of the conundrum faced by believers when they accept God’s word but can’t see it being manifested in their lives. Seeking refuge from the pain of her recent divorce, Allison Kavanagh moves to the remote mountain cabin in Idaho, bequeathed to her by beloved Aunt Emma, a successful nature photographer. Smarting from the conviction that she precipitated the divorce by acting on spiritual guidance to issue a tough-love ultimatum, Allison takes strength in the 2010s from a surprisingly parallel and secret side of Emma’s life in the 1920s, pieced together through old photos and journal entries. With the help of family and newfound church community, Allison reconsiders the trajectory of her marriage, and gradually works through her spiritual and emotional turmoil. The mountain setting is as appealing an aspect of this upbeat, well-paced novel as Allison, Emma, and their family and friends. Agent: Natasha Kern, Natasha Kern Literary Agency. (Jan.)
