Wiseman delivers a realistic storyline in this Daughter of the Promise novel. While the characters are likable, readers may find that some of the outcomes are rather predictable.
At 17, Josie Dronberger was forced to give her newborn daughter away. A young Amish couple were thrilled to receive baby Linda. Now, 17 years later, Josie wants to connect with Linda -- who does not know that she is adopted. Linda Huyard is enjoying her rumspringa before her 18th birthday and anticipating a proposal from the bishop's grandson. Will meeting Josie entice Linda from the only life she has ever known?
