Publisher's Description

Take a trip to Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, where you’ll meet the women of the Kauffman Amish Bakery in Lancaster County. As each woman’s story unfolds, you will share in her heartaches, trials, joys, dreams … and secrets. You’ll discover how the simplicity of the Amish lifestyle can clash with the “English” way of life—and the decisions and consequences that follow. Most importantly, you will be encouraged by the hope and faith of these women, and the importance they place on their families. In A Promise of Hope, the second installment in the Kauffman Amish Bakery series, bestselling author Amy Clipston continues to unfold the tensions, loves, and faith of the inhabitants of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, and the family bakery that serves as an anchor point for the 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.

    I was not even close to being prepared for what was revealed in the first few pages of A Promise of Hope!

    Imagine finding out that someone who was known for his heroism is hiding deep, dark secrets

    Now, Im not completely gullible enough to believe that the Amish do not make mistakes. I know better; theyre human beings just like the rest of us. But shouldnt their vows cause them to try harder (than most of us) to do the right thing ?

    Amy Clipston is such an amazing writer that she knows better than to make her characters perfect, or nearly perfect. Instead, she dwells on how they try to do the right thing at least most of them most of the time.

    A Promise of Hope is exactly that

    People who make mistakes, but try harder to do whats right. Thats the sort of characters Amy writes about characters easy to like, yet some with a past just waiting to catch up with them.

    And it was very easy to get caught up in this story even from the very beginning when an English woman from his past shows up asking Luke questions about his brother. After she divulges where Peter is living, Luke decides to pay him a visit.

    The first novel in the series centered around Jessica and Lindsay, two young girls whose parents had passed away. When Luke arrives in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, he meets Lindsay, who is adapting well to Amish life.

    But what does he do when Peter isnt there and no one seems to know just who Peter really was!

    I love this series. Even though I now own every novel and novella about the Kauffman family, Im still sad when I get to the end of a book.

    I enjoyed this second installment of the Kauffman Amish Bakery series for the most part. Sarah is a young widow pregnant with twins, and grieving her husband's death. A relative of her husband, Luke, comes to town to check on him, except Sarah was told her husband was an orphan. The misunderstandings piled on from there. I get that Sarah was grieving, but the whining was overdone. I found several distracting repetitive phrases sprinkled throughout the book. I hope the third book is better, because I like the storyline of the series and will continue reading for that reason.

    I want the Kauffman family to adopt me. I could learn to bake well enough to work in the bakery. The author paints such a lovely portrait of the family businesses, family connections and family ties in this brilliant series of hers. I read the book several months ago and still have the vivid imagery alive and well with me. The characters are well developed and the story is chock full of originality. Don't miss this one. It would be a shame. I don't think it is unreasonable to wish this series would never end.
