“The Promise Box, by Tricia Goyer, book review
Lydia returns to the Amish community in West Kootenia, Montana after the death of her mother. While she was raised Amish, she left the community after learning the details of her birth and subsequent adoption. She pursued a successful book editing career in Seattle, WA.
Gideon is one of the many Amish bachelors who come to West Kootenia each year to establish residency for the hunting season. Many of them return home with brides. But Gideon has another reason for coming to the mountain town. As a young child his family vacationed in the area, and one night he ventured out to “hunt for bears” but became lost. He was found some hours later after a massive search for the young boy. He has always felt there was something else that happened that night, but his parents never told him.
Lydia and Gideon become friends and learn to heal in their own ways in the 2nd book of the “Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors” series.
I enjoyed the book. I did read the first book in the series, but this one will stand alone. The plot is easy to follow, and the characters are developed well. I will look forward to the next book.
