THE PROMISE BOX
Goyer knows how to keep readers entertained, with twists and turns and surprises in her novels that readers will want to uncover. The second book in her Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series has something for everyone: romance, mystery and family secrets.
Lydia Wyse was raised Amish, but left that way of life to find herself. She returns to West Kootenal, Mont., to be with her father after the passing of her mother. Her boss asks her to write stories about growing up Amish and what it’s like to come back after living English. But she ruffles feathers and people try to convince her to drop her writing and to move on. When she meets Gideon Hooley, she wants to move forward and become Amish, but she struggles with what she will need to give up. Will the answers she seeks be the ones her heart longs for or will they break her heart totally in two? (Zondervan, May, 336 pp., $14.99)
