Once again Amy Clipston shows us her wonderful story telling talents.  A Promise of Hope is a book you will not put down from start to finish.
Sarah Troyer has experienced tragedy as no one should ever have to experience it.  Her husband died in a horrible fire that destroyed her father's Amish furniture business.  They had just found out a boppli was expected and were so happy their little family was growing, when Peter was snatched away in death.  Her heart is broken and she feels like she will never recover and be happy again.  Even learning that she is expecting twins, she still is sad that they will never know their Dat.
Luke Troyer is shocked to find out that his family member is dead, and that he was still Amish, and that he had a family.  Even more dismaying to Luke is the jealousy he feels because Peter had this wonderful family.  He finds himself very attracted to Peter's widow, and is sure that is not a good thing, but he just cannot deny that attraction.
A wonderful story of how good can come from the ashes of sorrow and pain.  Each book in this series just has you longing for the next one.  Amy Clipston truly is a very talented author. DON'T miss this book.  300 pages  US $12.99 5 stars
