Book DescriptionEvery 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 bestselling 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, 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?
The Promise Box written by Tricia Goyer is a book about trust, love, and finding your way. Lydia Wise returns home because of a tragedy only to realize that it is time to decide who she is and where she belongs. Little does she know that it will be harder than she thinks and must prove herself to be trustworthy. Is her decision the right one? Through finding her strength in God, Lydia also finds truth, love, compassion, and a sense of belonging.
I completely and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this book. I look forward to reading more books written by Tricia Goyer!!!!
