Book Review: Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard

 Promise Lodge

Promise Lodge 



From Amazon:

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 fiancĂ©e, 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 and aunts, and their beloved Preacher Amos, will do their best to help him get there. 


My thoughts:

Charlotte Hubbard drew me in as she describes not only the surroundings of Promise Lodge in perfect detail but the personalities of all the characters.  I became so involved I felt as though I knew and cared about each one.  

The woman of Promise Lodge were so impressive with their courage, strength, and love for others. Starting over is always hard but these women are determined to make it work.  

I could probably show you on paper the layout I have in my head of Promise Lodge. I would be highly disappointed if it turned out to be different! With such great detail, I could hear the wolves in the distance, imagine fishing at the pond, and then curling up under the beautiful quilts in one of the rooms. I would love to be able to send an inquiry to Amos Troyer myself!  

This book was reminded me that God wants us to forgive and love each other.

Wonderful, Wonderful read!
