Publisher's Summary

In Promise, Texas, people know what it is to depend on a friend, and how to be that friend. They know that family, home, and community are the things that really count. They know that love gives meaning to every single day of their lives.

Some of the people in Promise are from old ranching families, like the Westons and the Pattersons, who first came to hill country more than a century ago. And there are newcomers like Annie Applegate, who's looking for peace and finds a great deal more. She agrees to marry a widowed veterinarian for the sake of his children...and discovers that marriage can lead to love.

In Promise, everyone's life is a story! The people here, like people everywhere, experience tragedies as well as triumphs, sorrow as well as joy. This town, like towns everywhere, has its share of secrets. But, whether times are good or bad, you're never alone in a place like Promise. And that makes all the difference.

Good story... but

Good story, but wish the unabridged was available. This abridged version just doesn't flow. The series deserves better!

Abridged was a bad idea

story was way too choppy. it jumped around and moved way too quickly. I enjoyed the great few books in this series, but listening to this over abridged was not even with the time. I wish audible had the unabridged version. I am very disappointed.

Very good read!!

Excellent book! Even though it is part of a series the author gave a background so everything was clear and easy to follow! As usual, Ms Macomber has written a wonderful story!!
