Publisher's Description

In the first novel in the Keepers of the Promise trilogy, three cousins sort through the treasures of their Amish family and discover stories from the past that provide inspiration for their own lives...
 
Central Pennsylvania, current day. Rebecca Fisher gladly accepted her husband Paul’s dreams as her own, but now that he has passed away, she’s struggling to raise two children and keep her home. Renting her stable to carpenter Matthew Byler offers a partial solution—even though Matthew has a troubled history, having sometimes failed to embrace Amish beliefs. As Matthew seeks to prove himself, Rebecca realizes how dependent she has become on others. Where can she find the courage to grow and change?
 
Lancaster County, 1941. As war threatens, Anna Esch pours her experiences into her diary. Her world seems to crumble as neighbors turn against the Amish and her love, Jacob, is sent to a camp far away for refusing to fight. She can’t know, as she grows from a girl into a woman during a time of trouble and grief, that one day another Amish woman will gain strength from the words she writes and will learn that she, too, can become a keeper of the promise.

Author Bio

A lifetime spent in rural Pennsylvania and her own Pennsylvania Dutch roots led Marta Perry to write about the Plain People who add to the rich heritage of her home state. She is the author of more than fifty inspirational romance novels, including the Pleasant Valley series and the Keepers of the Promise trilogy. She lives with her husband in a century-old farmhouse.

    What a WONDERFUL story! A page in and I was HOOKED! WOW!

    Thank goodness we have every book of her Pleasant Valley novels! I wont have to hunt them down to read them all. Of course we dont have every book of hers but Im going to be on the lookout!

    And so should you!

    Marta Perry is a masterful storyteller and she will pull you right in!

    Wonderful story! Intriguing history! Excellent characters!

    Just an all-around GREAT book!

    Now Im chomping at the bit to get my hands on the next one! LOL!

    Susan Meissner nailed it when she said Skillfully weaves the past and the present in a heart-stirring tale.

    DO NOT miss this book and do not miss any of her others! As delightful an author as Marta Perry is, I can not imagine even one of her books not being just as fantastic a read!

    And its not just the writing I love. The very idea of someone storing up memories from the familys past to share well, not enough of us do that. And even among the ones who do, not enough of them get around to bringing the rest of the family in on their history.

    And making the focus of the story an Amish family perfect! Who better to show holding on to their precious family history!

    READ IT!

    The Forgiven by Marta Perry will keep you going as it did me from the beginning to the end. Rebecca Fisher sorting out family treasures comes across a diary of Anna Esch written in 1941. While struggling to keep her home going after her husband passes she is drawn into reading Anna's diary. You will want to read this book to see both generations come together nicely to bring strength and courage to grow and change.

    This is the first book of a series "Keepers of the Promise". Will "The Forgiven" be a keeper on your shelf! You bet! and will want more. I absolutely loved this book and can't wait to continue on with the series. Awesome read and truly a 5 star.

    This ARC copy was given to me for my honest opinion. Thank you Marta for the chance to read your book. You rock!
