I like to read the different stories about the Amish. This one had just a slight different spin to it. I thought it was very well written and it kept my interest. I found some parts very sad, but Tricia did not leave you there. I love the way she brought out some great life lessons in her telling of their story. ( )

I don't really read a lot of romance, but I do enjoy my Christian fic so I was happy to request this book to read for free in exchange for an honest review from booksneeze.

This is the second book in the series, but you can really read this one as a standalone. I know, every author says that about their books, but I hate reading books in a series without reading all the earlier ones, but this one you can really read alone.

The premise of the series is simple:

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!

I can't imagine living in a world like that!

Lydia is a book editor, who goes back home after her mother's death and finds her "promise" box. The book goes from there with twists and turns and every time you think you figure out where the book is going, Goyer twists the story just a little bit more. The characters are very relatable and as such, became very real to me on the page. ( )

This story seemed to jump. One minute Lydia is living in the Englisch world and the next she comes home (after her mother's death) and decides to become Amish again. A week later she is baptized. Some things just didn't fit. Lydia supposedly belongs to and Old Order Amish group but the author mentions buttons on one of the men's shirt. The women have Bible study with the Englisch women. Lydia kept and used her cell phone, even after she had been baptized. When she went yo Pennsylvania, the Bishop gave Gideon permission to fly to PA. to bring her home. The storyline was good, but I had a hard time getting past some things in the book. ( )

The Promise Box is the 2nd book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series by Tricia Goyer. The book takes place in Montana in a town that is popular among Amish men who come to the area in the spring to establish residency so that they will be eligible to hunt in the fall. Most arrive as bachelors but end up leaving with wives. That is how we meet Gideon Hooley who returns to the area not only to hunt but in search of answers from his past. Lydia Wyse was adopted by an Amish couple as a baby, but when she was told this on her 16th birthday, she makes up her mind that she will leave the community to return to life among the Englisch. She is currently working in Seattle for a publishing company when she gets a call from her Amish father telling her that her mother has passed away. She returns to Montana to attend her mother's funeral with mixed emotions, and while there her father gives her a box that belonged to her mother which she called a promise box. It contained handwritten notes and scripture verses that brought comfort to her mother, as well as notes written to Lydia from her mother as well. Through this box Lydia feels the connection between her Amish ways and starts to reconnect her relationship with God. When she relates this find to her boss though, all he sees is an opportunity to publish a "tell-all" book about the Amish way of life. Lydia is torn between what she should do and must decide what is more important to her.

In the meantime, Lydia meets Gideon while she is out taking pictures one day. Gideon shows his displeasure at an Englischer taking pictures in the Amish community, but after she explains why she is there they soon discover that they both share a mutual attraction to each other.

The story is about the struggles that both Lydia and Gideon must face as they search for answers about their past. It is a story about finding one's path in life and deciding what is important. It is the journey towards faith that both of them must make before they can move on.

I think that anyone who reads inspirational fiction will find this series to be enjoyable. I will probably check out the rest of the books in the series as well, since I usually don't like reading books out of sequence if I can help it , even though many of them can be stand-alone stories.
I received this ebook from NetGalley in return for my honest review. I would like to thank the publisher for the opportunity to review this title. ( )

“The Promise Box” by Tricia Goyer was a sweet book. I instantly like Lydia and I had to wonder where the book was going to take her. Her is returning to the Amish town that her parents live in to attend the funeral of her mother. It was hard for her to go back because she left the Amish lifestyle years before. Once she gets there she decides to stay a few weeks in order to help her father adjust to the loss of her mother. The author does a great job of making the book come alive and make you feel like you are right there with the characters. She is a great writer and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

God puts books in my hands at times he feels I need right then. While reading this I was struggling with my own faith. So I could relate to Lydia and her struggles to return to faith. Not just to the Amish way but to find faith of her Mother.
Lydia had left the Amish community because she felt she just did not fit in. She knew she was adoped and that her birth mother had been raped.
Lydia returned to be with her Dat after her Mem's passing. She was given hand written promises her Mother had put in a Promise Box for her. These promises drew her back to the faith and the simple Amish way.
Gideon had come to Montana to find answers to his past. He was never allowed to forget about getting lost in woods when he was 4 years old. His parents never told him the whole story.
I liked the way the English and Amish interacted in this community. I live in a rural area and find it hard to be part of the community here. I always feel like an outsider. So I know some of the feelings of not fitting in.
Lydia's Dad sends her to visit her real birth Mother and get to know her. There was so much different in this book about Amish than others I have read.
I won't say the book has completely got me through my struggle with my faith after 55 years. But I am very glad I read it.
