Book Reviews - Promises, Promises by Amber Miller

Another "new" and exciting thing here at Though No One Join Me will be book reviews! I am a reader. Since I was a child, I have always LOVED a good book! My favorites ( and really the only ones I will read ) are Christian fiction, Christian biographies, and Christian life books.

The book I will be reviewing today is "Promises, Promises" by Amber Miller. This is a Christian Fiction book from Heartsong Presents. Description of book is as follows:

Raelene Strattford knows God has promised never to leave or forsake her. But after the catastrophic deaths of her parents, she doesn t believe it. What kind of God would take a girl's family and leave her alone in a wild land where women have no voice? Gustaf Hanssen has admired Raelene from afar for a while, but his poor attempt at courting her in the past has made him unwelcome in her life. When Gustaf promises Raelene's dying father that he will take care of her, he finds himself bound to her happiness, her success, and her well-being in ways he never imagined. To keep his word must Gustaf really oversee all of Raelene's affairs, find her a husband, and maintain her farm, while she does nothing but scorn him? Can God reach through Raelene's pain and self-centeredness and give her the love that awaits, if only she will accept His will?

This was a fantastic fiction book! Very good, Godly message included. And a sweet love story was thrown in as well.

Set in the 1700-1800 time frame, the story follows characters living a decidedly different existance than we do today. I personally love books written in an older time period.

If you would like to read this book, check out the link here to Amazon. This book is a great read, I guarantee it! :)
