A Promise Kept by Robin Lee Hatcher

A Promise Kept

A Promise Kept – Book Review

Today I’d like to share a very special book with you. The book is called A Promise Kept by Robin Lee Hatcher and – although it’s a work of fiction – it’s particularly poignant because the story is based upon the author’s personal life experiences.

A Promise Kept is the story of Allison Kavanagh, who we meet during a time of transition. Allison is in the process of moving into her new home – a cabin she inherited from her Aunt Emma – due to Allison’s divorce from her alcoholic husband, Tony.

Under different circumstances Allison might have viewed this cabin in the woods as a gift – a blessing – a sanctuary. At this juncture in her life, however, Allison’s new life means only one thing to her: failure.

Failure in her marriage… failure as a wife… failure as a believer.

As a result of the dissolution of her marriage, and the way in which things transpired, Allison’s relationship with God has faltered. Allison believes that God has broken His promise to restore her marriage and now, she doesn’t even know how to speak to Him. But – during her exploration of her new home, Allison comes across journals that her Aunt Emma has written of her life, dating back to 1917.

As Allison reads through these journals, she soon learns that the life her Aunt Emma led was very different from the life she believed Aunt Emma lived – and, she is surprised to discover that the two of them have more in common than she realized.

Drawing wisdom from the pages of the past – and moving forward to build a new life as she works through her anger, grief, and loss – A Promise Kept is the powerful story of how God restores us and keeps His promises, even in the midst of what we perceive to be unrecoverable losses.

I loved A Promise Kept and found myself drawn to the story and the characters from the start. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t stop…

I highly recommend this story and rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
