Product Description

Every year, young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive "resident" status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides!

In The Promise Box, the second book of bestselling author Tricia Goyer's Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, Lydia Wyse, a book editor from Seattle who grew up Amish, returns to the small community of West Kootenai, Montana to give comfort to her father after her mother's death. She is drawn back to the familiar Amish ways after finding her mother's most precious possession, a Promise Box of prayers and scripture. What her publisher sees, though, is an opportunity for a sensational "tell-all" book about the Amish.

Lydia soon finds herself falling in love with Amish bachelor Gideon Hooley. She wants nothing more than to forget her past and look forward to a future as an Amish bride. Will the pain of her childhood---and her potential betrayal of her community---keep her from committing her whole heart?

    Debs Dozen: Lost Amish Boy, Lost Englisch Girl Guilt Can Hurt; Love Can Heal

    Lydia Wyse, an editor for a publishing company in Seattle, comes home to West Kootenai, Montana, to attend her mothers funeral and care for her father. Driving into the community, she is struck by the beauty and gets out of her car to photograph a lovely Amish farm. Gideon Hooley, working with Blue, a skittish stallion, in the field next to the house comes over to scold her for driving up fast, pulling over suddenly, and scaring his horse.

    Lydia apologizes, although seething inside at his rudeness, then asks for directions to the Wyse farm. Answering Gideon in Pennsylvania Dutch, she reveals that she is the daughter of the Wyses come home to bury her mem. Gideon realizes that hes been abrupt and inhospitable and returns the lens cap to her camera to the farm later that afternoon. He is interested in Lydia, but she is Englisch and verboten.

    Lydia is drawn back to the Amish ways after her dad gives her Mems most prized possession, a Promise box of prayers and scriptures and letters to Lydia never sent. She wonders whether her call home is a true one or whether shes just intrigued by her publishers view that Lydia should write a book about her Amish upbringing and way of life.

    Lydia had left the Amish after her truth about her birth was told to her when she turned sixteen. Gideon had returned to West Kootenai to find the truth of when he had gotten lost in the woods as a child. Both have a journey to take both have difficulties and misunderstandings to overcome.

    Tricia Goyers "The Promise Box" is a lovely tale of redemption and love. You will enjoy reading and learning about the Amish culture and their lives with Lydia and Gideon. One of the books in the "Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors" series, "The Promise Box" is a great book to curl up and read with a cup of tea beside your chair. Four stars.

    Zondervan Publishing gave me a copy of this book in exchange for my candid review.

    This book was so much more than a sweet Amish romance. The powerful themes of grief, remorse, faith, adoption, unconditional love of a parent, and community brought a depth of emotion to the story. As one who doesn't enjoy being brought down by heavy themes, I'm appreciative that there was an underlying message of hope and promise throughout.

    I realize that Amish books are all the rage, but as I was telling my mother, Tricia Goyer is one of the originals. Anyone can write an Amish book, but I believe it takes someone special to weave a memorable, emotionally involving Amish story that will stick with its readers for long after the book is shut. And Tricia Goyer is the author that does it again and again. I lost count of how many of her books I have read, and I believe I rated each one of them as a solid five. She has the formula for writing an amazing story, and I hope to be reading her stories for years to come.

    This book is one that has the perfect amount of humor, faith, sorrow, and even a bit of mystery. I have to admit that although I could basically guess how the end would go, I was not one hundred percent certain. There was still just enough uncertainty to keep me guessing along the way. This book never comes across as "preachy," but I so appreciate the way she paints this wonderful community. It is clear that these Amish communities care more about a relationship with God than rules and regulations.

    This book is entirely clean--no profanity and no sex. In addition to this, you can count on reading fairly quickly. The author's style is quite enjoyable to read, and you may just find putting down the book is next to impossible. I marveled at the devotion of the Amish people, and it was further intriguing that Lydia came back from Seattle (from the native Washingtonian).

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    Lydia Wyse is an Amish girl from Seattle who became a book editor for the English. She has returned to West Kootenai, Montana, to be there for her grieving father as they mourn a wonderful wife and mother. She is irrevocably drawn to a box that belonged to her mother, filled with prayers and scriptures. The familiarity of her upbringing brings many precious memories of a much different life to the surface. But then her publisher sees the opportunity to make a sensational 'tell-all' about the Amish through the eyes of Lydia.

    Every year, young, Amish bachelors come to West Kootenai during the spring, live there for six months, and receive resident status to get a hunting license in the fall. They come single, and leave hitched. Gideon Hooley is one such Amish man, and he has every intention of leaving with a bride. Lydia seems like the one, except she seems to be struggling with the circumstances of her birth. Gideon has some secrets to hide. Will they be able to resolve the hurts of the past to enter a brighter future? Or will the secrets that should never have been hidden threaten to destroy them all?

    While I loved this novel, the switch between "your" and yer" was a bit much. But other than that little disappointment, this was wonderful story! While there is so much Amish fiction out there (yes, it makes my head spin sometimes!) Goyer presents us with a thrilling installment in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series. While the story line is not the most unique, there was plenty of tension between characters and all the quandaries they find themselves in. All in all, a great novel for fans of Amish fiction (die-hard, or otherwise) and anyone looking for a great summer read.

    This book was provided by the publisher fore free in exchange for an honest review.

    Tricia Goyer has created an incredible, suspenseful romance that will lift the hearts of readers. As I read and waited with baited breath to find out the answer to the big question, another conflict was added and I did not want to put the book down. My heart went out to Lydia and Gideon. Lydia and Gideon both fear that they will never belong anywhere. I have certainly experienced the sting of rejection and abandonment so I could relate to the characters. I have read each of Tricia's books in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors' series and I personally felt that this book was the best in the entire series. I also am hoping that there is a book to follow this one as I am anxious to know what comes next for Gideon and Lydia. It would be nice to see her connect in a deeper way with her birth family.

    I received a free kindle version of this book from booksneeze in exchange for my honest review.
