Item description for Promised To Me (Coming To America V4) by Robin Lee Hatcher...

Shortly after Karola and Jakob were betrothed, Jakob emigrated from Germany to America, promising to send for Karola as soon as he had a home for her. "Promised to Me" is a story of love renewed as Karola and Jakob build a life together out of the rubble of broken promises and shattered dreams.

Publishers Description
Dear Mother and Father, After all those years, I was certain Jakob Hirsch had forgotten me. Then came his proposal of marriage. With more impulse than wisdom, I crossed the ocean to begin a new life with him in Shadow Creek, Idaho. Little did I dream of the changes eleven years had brought to the man I once loved---which included three small children waiting with him at the station. I will not marry a stranger who no longer loves me, but I have agreed to look after Jakob s children until the harvest is in. A cabin on his property provides me with respectable living quarters. If only it were as easy to separate my heart from this family It will be difficult to leave when the time comes, for I am falling in love with these little ones---and, truth be told, with Jakob. Your loving daughter, Karola Breit In Idaho, the land is good but life is hard for a German emigre whose dreams have turned to dust. Love found and lost can shatter a man s faith. But it is about to strengthen that of the woman to whom he turns---and in the drought of summer, a withered promise springs to life. Promised to Me is book four in the Coming to America series about women who come to America to start new lives. Set in the late 1800s and early 1900s, these novels by best-selling author Robin Lee Hatcher craft intense chemistry and conflict between the characters, lit by a glowing faith and humanity that will win your heart. Look for other books in the series at your favorite Christian bookstore."

Reviews - What do customers think about Promised To Me (Coming To America V4)?

Promised to Me  Mar 16, 2006
Another winner by Robin Lee Hatcher. We need more exciting Christian novels. Many people might think because it is a Christian novel that it is devoid of action and suspense but this is not so at all.
Promises to Keep You Up All Night  Dec 19, 2005
I read a lot of books. Rarely does a book keep me up all night, but this one did. Karola Breit grows in the Lord and in maturity, as she cares for the children of a man who broke his promise to bring her to America and marry her 10 years earlier. While she refuses to marry him her first day in Shadow Creek, Idaho, she cannot refuse to care for his three motherless children, while he gathers his harvest. I can't wait to read the rest of the series--I love prairie romance and immigration in the late 1800s stories, and this fits that bill beautifully.
Learned something new  Mar 8, 2004
I love the message Karola Breit recognizes within herself, that she is making strong, healthy choices that will guide her life. Karola grows from an immature girl to the woman who knows her own heart. And when she makes mistakes along the way, she is able to look around and realize that everyone makes those same mistakes. It is this humanity and genunine human spirit I love in Robin Lee Hatcher's books. Her characters do not so much change overnight as they realize their mistakes and are able to grow, and hey - it's a book! "Promised to Me" is my favorite of the Coming to America far.
Promised to Me  Jul 28, 2003
This book was okay, but isn't one of my favorites. Jakob seemed so harsh. He always seemed to be upset. And I felt sorry for Lance. He was in love with such a loser. Charlotte is a character hard to understand. In one chapter she's all mean and spoiled. And in the next, she's feeeling bad for eavesdropping. The children were not realistic. They seemed too perfect. And it was hard to read because she kept throwing in all these German words. Some characters seemed to be crying every other page. Overall, this book wasn't bad. But I've definitly read better books. No offense.
Warm & Tender  Apr 22, 2003
Ms. Hatcher has a wonderful way of telling slice-of-life stories set in small town America. Promised to Me is another fine example. I felt like I was one of Jakob and Karola's neighbors, I knew them so well. I came to love each of the children and longed for this couple to discover their love for one another anew. I'll bet this is another award winner for Ms. Hatcher. It's that good. And since I was born and raised in Idaho, I loved seeing the state so lovingly and accurately portrayed in this historical setting. If you want a feel-good read, you can't go wrong with Promised to Me.
