About the book: God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. But neither her husband nor her marriage had been saved.
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 pregnant within a year. Her cup bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy had been 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; it was clear that she'd misunderstood.
Now, 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. But when she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emma's attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman surprisingly 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?
Drawing from her own heart-wrenching story of redemption,A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher's emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers---in His own time and His own ways.

My Thoughts:
What a beautiful of lost dreams, heartache, love and second chances. Hatcher provides an excellent backdrop for the sustaining mercy and redemptive grace of God to shine brightly in her characters and their circumstances.  A Promise Kept actually contains two stories...the story of Allison and Tony as well as the story of Allison's Great Aunt Emma.  And in both, Hatcher weaves a plot of grace that spans generations and shines a spotlight on the Sovereignty of God and how He uses our circumstances to mold us and shape us for His glory and our good.
It is evident that Hatcher is sharing her heart in this novel...the emotion is so real in both Allison's and Emma's stories.  I enjoyed having an inside look at the journey of both these women.  Hatcher's inclusion of Emma's story fit fluently as she told Allison's.  You don't want to miss this one!  I've become a huge fan of Hatcher's writing and this may be her best novel to date!
