Litfuse Review: A Promise Kept by:Robin Lee Hatcher

A Promise Kept
About the Book:
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? For a woman accustomed to being someone else’s savior, that will be even harder than it sounds.

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.

My Review:
 Allison thought her life would go perfectly after she got married but she thought the total opposite. Within months of being married, she was expecting her first child. Her life with her husband was everything she pictured but then it took at turn for the worst. Now years later, she is moving in to a cabin in the mountains that she inherited from her dear aunt. While unpacking and cleaning up she comes across a few things that belonged to her aunt. She is surprised to find a wedding dress and a few sets of journals, of which she soon starts to read. Finding out what her aunt went through all those years ago, soon makes Allison realize that maybe her problems aren't so bad.

 Emma has never thought she was pretty, that is compared to her sister. Her sister was the one to receive the affection of a boy, the one that all boys looked at and watched. Not a one of them ever noticed her and what was special about her. But when the boy of the dreams seems to show some interest in her, she could do back-flips. He was the one all the girls fell for, he was handsome and charming. He was everything Emma wanted that is until he sees her sister and asks her for help in getting her to notice him. How nice, what now?
