Publishers Description Kathleen Morgan's books for the general market have earned rave reviews and hooked thousands of romance fans. Her first inspirational series, Brides of Culdee Creek, has proven successful as well. "Woman of Grace "and "Lady of Light "each climbed the CBA Marketplace best-selling fiction list. This new release, "Child of Promise, "is the final book in the series. Beth MacKay, the daughter of Culdee Creek's owner, returns home after completing medical school to take over the aging Doc Childress's practice. Reluctantly, her life and heart become entwined with that of Grand View's Episcopalian priest, Noah Starr. But Noah struggles with his faith and calling since his wife died and his daughter, Emily, was disabled with cerebral palsy due to the difficult birth. When Beth becomes embroiled in a spousal abuse case between two of Noah's parishioners, she encourages the battered woman to leave her husband for her own safety. Noah cautions the woman to try to work things out, and when the abuse ends in tragedy, it's the last straw for the already-doubtful priest. Despondent and shaken, he announces his resignation to the church. Only with Beth's faith and love, and a little help from the community, can Noah find his way back to the life and calling God has always intended for him.

Reviews - What do customers think about Child of Promise (Brides of Culdee Creek, Book 4)?
"...To do the will of God and receive what He has promised." Mar 25, 2002
FIRST: Although this book is 4th in a series, the story can be appreciated without first reading the other three. (However, the others are excellent also.)
INTRO: Each chapter of "Child of Promise" opens with a scripture, then weaves the story to illustrate the depth of the words that appear simple. In the first chapters, Beth has two great desires - to practice medicine and to become the wife of Noah Starr, the pastor of the local Episcopal church. When Noah marries another, Beth pursues a degree in medicine. Her time studying to be a doctor leaves her bitter, hardened and emotionally scarred. Upon her return home, circumstances put Noah, now widowed, and his disabled daughter in constant contact with Beth.
ANYONE WHO READS THIS BOOK IS IN FOR A SPECIAL BLESSING! While the story line appears to be the typical romance genre, the story is far from shallow, typical, or traditional. Kathleen Morgan, the author, goes past "happy ever after" to the reality of human nature and the relationship of each of us to God, as well as each other.
THEMES: This amazing historical novel addresses "hot topics" such as women in non-traditional careers, dual career families, domestic abuse, disabilities, etc. At the same time, it deals with ageless themes such as love, loss, and anger with God.
This book could be read as a study of church relations for everyone who is a member of the clergy, married to a member of the clergy, a leader in the church, a lay person, avoids church due to the hypocrites who attend or knows someone who goes to church. In other words, this is a must read for all.
Thanks again, Kathleen Morgan, for allowing yourself to be used by God for my benefit.
