Amy Moss was disowned by her parents when she married David Simms, a
mere commoner. Although Amy is devastated by her parents actions, she is
happy to start her new life with a loving husband. They leave Virginia
for a railroad job in Montana. To soon she finds herself a widow and in
survival mode but she also gains some wonderful friends who help her
through. Then she receives news, from her sister, of her fathers death
so she returns to Virginia. Finding only more heartache and hardship,
she decides to accept an offer to go live with her Aunt Catherine in
Maryland, leaving her spoiled sister behind. Amy is so happy to be with
Catherine, whose a wonderful Christian woman but whose heart aches to
find her husband, Ivan, whom she thought died in the war. Amy promises
her dying aunt that she'll find Ivan, just as they planned. She boards
the Queen Mary and is headed for England when she finds herself involved
with a handsome Captain, Derek Williams, and his sweet little daughter,
Sarah. Derek brings her home to Ireland to meet his family and promises
to take her to London to find Ivan. While in the beautiful countryside
surrounding her, she finds herself falling in love again and so very
thankful to God for His guiding hand and His many blessings. But will
Amy's faith be strong enough to sustain her through all that lies ahead?
tragedy and triumph, Amy's promise is one of those stories that grabs
you right from the start and doesn't let you go until the last page is
turned. Set in 1937, you experience the post depression era as well as
the uncertainty of an impending world war. The characters are vibrant
and very well drawn. You get to know them so well, that you'll find
yourself thinking about them long after you close the book. I loved how
the author weaved in the message of God's love, forgiveness and His many
blessings toward us. There were lots of twist and turns and so many
things happening that it kept me wondering how it would all turn out. It
would make a fantastic movie! If you enjoy a story you can't put down,
that's full of emotion and a journey you won't soon forget, I would
highly recommend Amy's Promise! Great job, Doris!
I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
