Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Amy Clipston compellingly unfolds the tensions, loves, and faith of the inhabitants of an Amish community and the family bakery that serves as an anchor point for the series in this unabridged audio of A Promise of Hope, the second installment in the Kauffman Amish Bakery series.

When Sarah Troyer tragically loses her husband, Peter, she is left to raise infant twins alone. Overwhelmed and grieving, she lives with her parents in the Amish community of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. Sarah is taken completely by surprise when a stranger arrives claiming connections to Peter’s past—Peter had told her he was an orphan with no family. From Luke, she learns her husband hid a secret life, one with ramifications that will change her own.

Sarah's family, concerned for her and the future of her twins, encourages her to marry again. It should make sense - but Sarah’s heart says no. She feels trapped. Should she marry a man she doesn't love? Or discover if her growing interest in Luke can be trusted?

A Promise of Hope is filled with surprising twists that will grip you to the very last words.

Savor another Kauffman Amish Bakery title.

Good book, bad narrator.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was a good story. The author does a good job. But the narrator was terrible. No change in voices and way too much emphasis on EVERY sentence!

How could the performance have been better?

A narrator who is able to voice different characters so that you can tell who is speaking and also does not read every sentence as if it has an exclamation mark at the end of it!

Tragic Romantic Love Story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes.

If you’ve listened to books by Amy Clipston before, how does this one compare?

Very Good.

Which scene was your favorite?

Hard to say the story was so sorrowful.

Do you think A Promise of Hope needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I believe there are several more books already in print.

Any additional comments?

I couldn't give the book a 5 star rating but nevertheless I will most likely read/listen to the rest of the series out of curiosity.

  • Overall

a book in the slow lane

The plot is elementary and predictable, very simplistic with no depth or intrique. The fist book in the series was much more interesting which made this one disappointing. Too bad the author did not involve more of the characters we met in the first book.

A Promise of Hope
