Isaac Liddle is determined to win Emmie Croftner’s heart. Emmie’s drawn to Isaac but she’s not sure how he’ll feel about her when he finds out the truth surrounding her pregnancy. She also has a hard time trusting a man after Monroe. Then a woman shows up at the fort and sets her sights on Isaac. Emmie is not sure what to do as this woman is a formidable foe. Then a friend asks her for a promise that could change everything. A promise, that if anything happened to her in childbirth, she would marry her husband and raise the child as her own. When the birth becomes difficult, Emmie fears she just might have to keep her promise. And then what would happen with Isaac?
This is the fifth installment in the Journey of the Heart Series and we once again find ourselves at the fort. The pages are full of emotion as Emmie struggles with the idea of love, a good friend asks Emmie for a big promise, two women from the past show up and Isaac is trying his best to get past Emmie’s protective wall. None of these issues are easy. I appreciated the genuine faith these folks displayed though. You again get an idea of how tough life was at the fort and what courage and stamina it took to live there. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and by this installment I’ve really come to care about these folks. This story is part of a serial series so you really need to read them in order as each story picks up where the previous one left off.
