Light Shines on Promise Lodge
by Charlotte Hubbard
With autumn in full brilliant color, the Amish of Promise Lodge celebrate a successful harvest—and a community rooted in deep friendship. But as cold winds of judgment cast doubt and fear, residents will need each other more than ever to weather the storm . . .
For abandoned wife Annabelle Beachey, Promise Lodge is a refuge where she's gained confidence and self-sufficiency. But she and others are dismayed when newly arrived Bishop Clayton King claims the community is too progressive and sets out to change its ways. Worse, her husband, Phineas returns, expecting her to give up her faith as he has. And he won't leave Promise Lodge without her . . .
But little by little, Annabelle's determination and new forthrightness make Phineas realize his mistakes—and truly hear his wife for the first time. Meanwhile, Annabelle finds herself feeling compassion—and even renewed love—for her newly humble, more caring husband. And as Bishop Clayton's attempt to control Promise Lodge threatens everything its residents have built, Phineas and Annabelle must work together with unshakeable courage to save their new home—and their opportunity for forever happiness.
Mystery, romance, and faith in God were what drew me in to Charlotte Hubbard's new book, Light Shines on Promise Lodge. Everything is described so perfect from the wedding to the church meetings, at times I felt I was right there beside them, listening in.
However, it was the mystery in this book that really had me turning pages. I never would have guessed how it all turned out. Perfect!
Gloria was my favorite character in this book. Her character has grown to be a more self reliant, loving, and caring person. Her future looks so much brighter.
Promise Lodge is a series of books, but I if you wanted to read just this one, everything is explained very well. They all end perfect but they do leave you wondering about what will happen next at Promise Lodge.
What a great read!
This book was given to me by the author. This is my honest opinion.
