PROMISED TO ME
Karola Breit waits for over a decade before her betrothed writes to bid she leave Germany and join him in America. After nearly giving up hope, she leaps at the chance to escape the pity of her neighbors for her stubborn loyalty to Jakob Hirsch. Full of renewed dreams, Karola arrives in American Falls, ID, in 1908. She is stunned to find Jakob waiting for her at the train station with three small children from a wife who died only a year ago. How can he expect her to be second-choice wife and mother? Karola must learn to wait on God's timing for love, and Jakob must lay aside bitterness and learn to love again. PROMISED TO ME (3) is an engaging, sweet romance by veteran author Robin Lee Hatcher. The characters' motives and desires are straightforward; the plot is unsophisticated but neatly crafted. (May, 288 pp., $10.99)
