A Promise Kept

A Promise Kept, written by Robin Lee Hatcher, tells two stories of love lost.  First, you are introduced to Allison Kavanagh.  She is moving to set up residence in the cabin her great-aunt Emma had left to her upon her death.  Allison is trying to put her life back together following her recent divorce.  After a twenty-plus year marriage, she has finally decided to stop enabling her former husband, Tony, in his alcoholic ways!

As Allison slowly settles into her new environment, she begins to meet people in the small town of Kings Meadow.  As she is making new friends in this new place, it also seems like she is getting to know her great-aunt Emma in a whole new way.  When Allison finds all the journals that tell the story of Emma's life, she gets a glimpse at all the joys as well as the sorrows that Emma experienced throughout her ninety years of life!

As you learn about how God held Emma fast through the loss of her husband's place in her life, you wonder where God is leading Allison in this new place she is in!
