One of the best!

I've loved all the books in the series that I've heard so far, but this is definitely one of my favorites. Love is a prominent theme throughout all the books, but this one was especially touching. I love it!

The only complaint I have is that Joss is described as a very large, strong man, but the narrator uses a whiny, almost childlike voice when speaking as him. Other than that, it's perfect!

Promise of the heart

It's always sad to lose your best friend. But to lose them and be left with the promise of continuing with"Their life and making it Your own". That is what Tarsi is faced with. I can imagine adopting children, but I don't know if I could ever imagine stepping into the role of being wife to a man who just lost his most beloved wife, by honoring a promise. Guts is what it took, determination and a best friend's love.

I would recommend this book if you need a book to bring to you down to earth and remember what life is really "All" about. Tarsi wanted a good life and a family. She just hadn't expected it to come neatly wrapped up and handed to her. Yet, family values, honor, friendship, spiritual values. These are the things you see as Tarsi moves on to a better life, "just not the way she expected" to get it.

The author has a very nice way of turning the story around and including not only freedom of slaves (yet different status), showing what families go thru in life, no matter what their status or color...the same trials and they look for the same things...bringing up their children with good values; and prohibition and the changes it brought about.
