The Promise Box by Tricia Goyer #sponsored

Disclosure:  I am a member of the Tricia Goyer Fiction Launch Team and am posting for my readers' enjoyment. I received a copy of the book for review.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

Welcome to the campaign for Tricia Goyer‘s latest novel, The Promise Box (Zondervan). Romantic Times says, “Goyer knows how to keep readers entertained, with twists and turns and surprises in her novels that readers will want to uncover. The second book in her Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series has something for everyone: romance, mystery and family secrets.”

{More about The Promise Box}
The Promise BoxWith 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?

My Review/Thoughts:

This is the second book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors Series (you can read more about The Memory Jar at the link) but the story stands on its own if you haven't read the first book.  Once again, you are taken to the town of West Kootenai, Montana to an Amish community.  But this time it's from the perspective of a woman who has left the Amish and is returning home to her family for her mother's funeral.

Lydia's perspective and reason for leaving her Amish community is intriguing.  She faces a lot of challenges from her past while dealing with the impact of her decision to leave her family.  In the midst of facing these challenges, she falls in love with an Amish man who has a past of his own to deal with.  

Her mother's Promise Box holds encouraging scriptures and letters for Lydia.  These promises and her mother's last words help Lydia hang onto her faith in the midst of the dark shroud of her past haunting her.
