I have to say this book was my favorite book by this author. She hit a homerun with this story. There was a personal touch to the story that you could sense and it is explained at the end of the book. (read it to see what I mean :-)) My only disappointment was that Aunt Emma's story still needs to be finished. There was conclusion to a point, but my thought is we still need to learn the rest of her story. I loved reading about Aunt Emma. I also loved the fact that for Allison the box she tried to put God in, was not the way He had planned to answer her prayers. A great reminder for us all, that God's ways are not always the way we plan them to be. Great book 4.5 stars.

About the book: God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. But neither her husband nor her marriage had been saved.
What had become of His promise?
Tony Kavanagh had been Allison's dream-come-true. They were in love within days, engaged within weeks, married and pregnant within a year. Her cup bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy had been extinguished by unexpected trials.
The day Allison issued her husband an ultimatum, she thought it might save him. She never expected he would actually leave. She was certain God had promised to heal; it was clear that she'd misunderstood.
Now, living in the quiet mountain cabin she inherited from her single, self-reliant Great Aunt Emma, Allison must come to terms with her grief and figure out how to adapt to small town life. But when she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emma's attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman surprisingly like herself.
As Allison reads the incredible story of Emma's life in the 1920s and 1930s, she is forced to ask a difficult question: Does she really surrender every piece of her life to the Lord?
Drawing from her own heart-wrenching story of redemption,A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher's emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers---in His own time and His own ways.
