Rebecca Keim has just declared her love to John Miller and agreed to become his wife. But she’s haunted by her schoolgirl memories of a long ago love—and a promise made and a ring given. Is that memory just a fantasy come back to destroy the beautiful present…or was it real?
When Rebecca’s mother sends her back to the old home community in Milroy to be with her aunt during and after her childbirth, Rebecca determines to find answers that will resolve her conflicted feelings.
Faith, love, and tradition all play a part in Rebecca’s divine destiny

My Reivew: I’m sure you’ve seen from some of my past reviews, my love for Amish novels. Well, this is another great one to add to that mix!
When I think of an Amish novel being written, I think of a female author writing them. But that’s not the case with this amazing story. It is written by a male author with a fabulous knack for writing Amish stories.
The first in a trilogy, Rebecca’s Promise is full of page turning, riveting scenes. I found myself completely captured by the Amish characters. They quickly became a part of me, which is what I love to have happen when I read a great Amish novel!
It’s plot is twisty;full of secrets, promises, confusion and inspiration. One that I didn’t want to end, but knew it had to and can’t wait for part 2 to Rebecca’s riveting, hopeful story!
I give this 5 stars (more if I could!), two thumbs up and definite recommendation to all!
