“Hubbard writes Amish stories with style and grace.” —RT Book Reviews
It’s a better life, a fresh start–and a heaven-sent second chance. Founded by three Amish sisters determined to put misfortune behind them, Promise Lodge is a colony where faith’s abiding promise can be fulfilled–and love can make all things new…
Energetic widow Mattie Bender Schwartz is working day and night to get Promise Lodge going. She’s also hoping the change will help her son Noah’s heart, to heal, after his broken engagement. But his former fiancée, Deborah, is looking for a fresh start too. Filled with regret, and cast out by her dat for a reason she can’t yet reveal, Deborah can only pray Noah will forgive her foolishness.
Deborah is the last person Noah expected to show up at Promise Lodge. But with her cruel words still ringing in his head, he’s reluctant to accept her apology–even if the Old Order ways demand he try. If only he could obey Christ’s most important commandment: love one another. But one thing is certain–his mother, aunts, and their beloved Preacher Amos will do their best to help him get there.
Rating: 5 stars
Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard is perfect, sweet, and inspirational. I love reading this title. The story was everything I look for in a good Christian romance setting. The Amish are a great community to learn from, laugh with, and fall in love. They are also, the most hard working individuals too. The Amish characters are strong and courageous. Noah is the by far my favorite male character. He’s been hurt, yet he still strives hard to be successful in life and he’s irresistible…then there’s Deborah. She harshly turned Noah away…and now, life has somehow brought them both together again. But will it work?
Promise Lodge holds promise yet for two Amish young people. Time will only tell if they can learn to heal, forgive, and move forward. Charlotte Hubbard’s talent is one to keep a watch for…her writing takes you places. Dreamy, sweet, lighthearted places that will take readers deep into a plot that will forever hold their hearts. Inspiring how obstacles arise and characters rise to meet them. No matter how hard the situations nor how confusing they may be…the good always succeed. I loved this romance novel. Overall, I highly recommend this beautifully told story, to readers everywhere.
