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 was my first book to read by Robin Lee Hatcher. I thought the writing was fabulous. Her story drew me in, captured my attention and made me love her characters. I could feel the anguish and turmoil that the main character, Allison, was facing as she tried to trust what she thought God wanted her to do. The inclusion of Allison's great aunt's story, Aunt Emma, was fun to read and a great addition to the main story. This story is a great reminder that God doesn't work according to our timetable and that His ways are far above ours.
Something interesting about this story is that it is actually inspired by the author's own story. Robin was married to an alcoholic. She and her husband ended up separating and then finally got divorced. Five years later, God did something wonderful and brought them back together.
