Publisher's Description

World War II Marine Joe Garrison returns home from war longing to be a father to his deaf daughter, Daisy, only to find that she is attached to Esther Detweiler, the Amish woman who has raised her since his wife’s death in this touching historical romance.

Orphaned as a child, Esther Detweiler is used to caring for herself and her ailing grandmother. They made the best out of a hard life and poverty without asking for help. They even take in her shunned cousin’s deaf daughter, Daisy, when her mother dies and her father goes off to war. When Esther’s grandmother dies, Daisy is all she has.

When war veteran Joe Garrison returns, all he can think about is recovering from the horrors of war and building a relationship with his seven-year-old daughter. Daisy, however, is unwilling to leave Esther, whom she loves. Joe and Daisy get to know each other again, but Joe struggles with nightmares and fatherhood is proving to be more difficult than he imagined. Esther loves Daisy and despite her Amish ways, Joe finds himself drawn to her as a woman and not just a caregiver.

As their love blossoms, Joe decides to send Daisy away to a school for the deaf which propels their lives into turmoil and a battle for love and family.

Editorial Reviews

“Wielding her authentic Amish voice, Younts has once again created a storm in a quiet world. A master in the restoration of characters who’ve been broken by loss and war, Younts has also brilliantly taken on the strain of dealing with disabilities. Promise to Keep is a beautiful, heart-tugging read that will dare you to seek love beyond preconceived boundaries.”
“Readers of Amish fiction will love Elizabeth Byler Younts’ latest book, Promise to Keep. A tender tale, it is filled with heart-touching moments and characters who come alive on the page. A true gem of a story.”
