A Promise for Miriam by Vannetta Chapman
Amish schoolteacher Miriam King loves her students. At 26, most women her age are married with children of their own, but she hasn’t yet met anyone who can convince her to give up the Plain school that sits along the banks of Pebble Creek. Then newcomer Gabriel Miller steps into her life, bringing his daughter, an air of mystery, and challenges Miriam has never faced before.
Will Gabe be able to let go of the past that haunts him? He thinks he just wants to be left alone, but the loving and warm community he and his daughter have moved to has other plans for him. After a near tragedy is averted, he hesitantly returns offers of help and friendship, and he discovers he can make a difference to the people of Pebble Creek—and maybe find love again.
This book is the first book in the Pebble Creek Amish Series by Vannetta Chapman. I love Vannetta’s books and if you like her as well as I do, you will not be disappointed.
This book is about Miriam King and Gabriel Miller. Gabe is from Indiana and has just lost his wife. He has a little girl, Grace and she will warm your heart as she did mine. He decides to leave Indiana and move to Wisconsin with his daughter. In the meantime, Miriam is 26 and she thinks she is too old to marry until she meets Gabe. Sparks fly and Miriam is confused along with Gabe. Also, his daughter, Grace hasn’t talked since losing her mother.
I won’t say anything else, I don’t want to spoil the book for you. I really would suggest this book to read, it is a GREAT one. I couldn’t’ hardly put it down. I would definitely suggest this book to my family and friends. Thank you Vannetta for giving us this story.
Thank you Harvest House, for giving me the opportunity to read this book and give this review.
