Robin Lee Hatcher in her new book, “A Promise Kept book coverA Promise Kept” Book One in the Kings Meadow series published by Thomas Nelson  brings us into the lives of Allison Kavanagh and Emma Carter.

From the Back Cover:   God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. 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.

There comes a point, I think, in everyone’s lives where what we believe God has said He would do and the actual events do not seem to agree.   When this occurs it can be devastating, emotionally, physically and spiritually.  I think God allows this to happen to see if we will then draw closer to Him or draw away from Him in our pain.  All of this happens within the pages of “A Promise Kept”.  Ms. Hatcher has reached into her own life story and given us an emotionally charged drama that shows this test of faith.  I believe she has done a remarkable job of showing the intensity of feeling each character goes through especially Allison and Emma.  Ms. Hatcher has given us characters that are marvelous, meticulously crafted, and each one literally breathes on the pages.  Robin Lee Hatcher has written a well done novel that I liked a lot.
