God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. 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 expecting a baby within a year. Her cup had bubbled over with joy…but years later, that joy was 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 had promised to heal their marriage. Now it was clear that she'd misunderstood. 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. When she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emm's attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman a lot 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? For a woman accustomed to being someone else’s savior, that will be even harder than it sounds. Alluding to a personal history never before revealed, A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher's most intimate work yet and an emotionally-charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers - in His own time and His own ways.

I am a glass artist and while I create, I listen to books. each creation has memory of one listened to. I love Jesus and my family.
I don't often comment on books but this one requires. I found the story to me and to be inspired. After the stories such as this I realized how it mimicked real life in profound ways. The biblical truths were spot on. This story is close to my heart as it is quite similar to mine... Both with a miraculous answer that often would be ignored by people today.... Yet the gifts portrayed here are God given in real life now...... Thank you for this amazing story!
I found it a bit difficult to jump between Emma and Allison, but apart from that it was a lovely story. The narrator was fantastic. It's amazing what God does when we pray to Him, even if we never see it. The most important being the salvation of loved ones!
