The Promise Box by Tricia Goyer (Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors #2)

Title: The Promise Box
Author: Tricia Goyer
ISBN: 9780310335122
Genre: Christian Fiction (Amish)
Type: Trade Paperback
Synopsis: Every year, young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive “resident” status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides!
In The Promise Box, the second book of best-selling author Tricia Goyer’s Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, Lydia Wyse, a book editor from Seattle who grew up Amish, returns to the small community of West Kootenai to give comfort to her father after her mother’s death. She is drawn back to the familiar Amish ways after finding her mother’s most precious possession, a Promise Box of prayers and scripture. What her publisher sees, though, is an opportunity for a sensational “tell-all” book about the Amish.
Lydia soon finds herself falling in love with Amish bachelor Gideon Hooley. She wants nothing more than to forget her past and look forward to a future as an Amish bride. But will the pain of her childhood---and her potential betrayal of her community---keep her from committing her whole heart?
My Review: I enjoyed this book just as much as the first book. Lydia is Englisch (after leaving the Amish earlier in her life) and Gideon is Amish but they still find themselves attracted to each other through their past. I like how Tricia can make each of the characters seem so real and make you fall in love with each o them. I found this to be an emotional book which is a good thing as I did not want to put the book down. Each of these books take us on a journey and they affect each of different but there is a good message in each of them that will come out as you read on.  Another thing I liked about this series is the prized possessions that also teach us something, first we had the memory jar and now the promise box, what shall we have next. I highly recommend this book to everyone. 5 Stars
