Book Review: Family Gatherings at Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard

 

Family Gatherings at Promise Lodge


 
In the year since he lost his wife in a tragic accident, Lester Lehman has found healing and purpose—helping construct Dale Kraybill’s new bulk store, enjoying the Kuhn sisters’ hearty meals, and settling into a tiny, built-for-one lakeside house. Falling in love again is surely not on Lester’s mind. Yet despite his firm “no,” two available ladies have set their kapps on the handsome widower—in a boisterous rivalry that weaves mayhem among the wedding festivities . . .
 
A welcome escape comes from a fresh-faced newcomer. Marlene Fisher disarms Lester with her witty quips on his romantic predicament, while her sparkling eyes inspire surprising thoughts of a shared future. But the heartbreak that brought Marlene to Promise Lodge runs deep, and the pretty maidel believes she’s not meant to marry. In a season of vows to love and honor, scripture holds the key to building their happiness together: love is kind, and above all . . . patient.

My Review:

Family Gatherings at Promise Lodge was a great relaxing book to read.   I loved the modern language that was used and the descriptions of where everyone lives made me feel like I was right there with them.  

Some of the characters were out of this world and I was a bit surprised by their audacity.  Yet, I totally believe there are people out there like this and Charlotte Hubbard described them perfectly.  

Reading about the older twins, Mose and Marlene's past helps you understand why they came to Promise Lodge.   Life can be complicated and we start to figure this was how it was meant to be.  It's not over yet.

This book will capture your attention with the romance, suspense, and wholesomeness.  What a great, great read!

This book was given to me but this is my honest review.
