God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. But neither her husband nor her marriage had been saved.

What had become of His promise?

Tony Kavanagh had been Allison’s dream-come-true. They were in love within days, engaged within weeks, married and pregnant within a year. Her cup bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy had been extinguished by unexpected trials.

The day Allison issued her husband an ultimatum, she thought it might save him. She never expected he would actually leave. She was certain God had promised to heal; it was clear that she’d misunderstood.

Now, living in the quiet mountain cabin she inherited from her single, self-reliant Great Aunt Emma, Allison must come to terms with her grief and figure out how to adapt to small town life. But when she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emma’s attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman surprisingly like herself.

As Allison reads the incredible story of Emma’s life in the 1920s and 1930s, she is forced to ask a difficult question: Does she really surrender every piece of her life to the Lord?
Drawing from her own heart-wrenching story of redemption, A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher’s emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers—in His own time and His own ways.

This is a beautiful novel in its own right but the fact that it has its roots in the author's own personal testimony makes it even more touching. Robin Lee Hatcher weaves a poignant tale that explores the all-too-common circumstance of a marriage ripped apart by addiction in spite of every effort made by the committed Christian spouse to protect the union. Allison Kavanagh's situation touches the heart as she moves to a remote cabin--inherited from her great-aunt Emma--in the mountains north of Boise, Idaho following her divorce, and her pain is palpable as she wrestles with her faith with gut-wrenching honesty. Entwined among this contemporary story is a historical tale, that of Aunt Emma, as revealed in her journals which Allison discovers in the house--and which open Allison's eyes to a new perspective of God's timing and His redemptive plan. This is a novel to be savored, pondered, and then shared with a friend. Don't miss it!
