The Promise Box (Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors #2) by Tricia Goyer & Giveaway

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 best-selling 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 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. But will the pain of her childhood---and her potential betrayal of her community---keep her from committing her whole heart?

After reading the first book in the series, The Memory Jar, and thoroughly enjoying it, I knew I was going to love this book before I even had my hands on it.

Goyer has a knack for storytelling, building realistic characters who just want to be loved and to love God.  Although Lydia wants to go back to her Amish roots, the publishing industry she's been a part of for so long has taken root too.   Not to mention that Gideon is sweet, handsome and a real fine catch.  But can she have them both? When her secrets and his begin to reveal themselves, it will be matters of the heart that take center stage.  

This town is so quaint and memorable, I can't wait to revisit it again in a new installment.  The secondary characters are just as realistic and really add depth to the storyline. Definitely pick this one up.  Tricia Goyer is a master at her craft and The Promise Box will stay with you long after you finish!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
