Every little secret is a chain to the past…

For Amish widow Naomi Ropp, moving back to her parents’ Bliss Valley home—with her boisterous twin toddler boys—is a chance to start over and bury the painful secrets of her marriage forever. But her life is turned upside down once again when she learns she’s not the only one hiding things. The parents she believed were always open and honest have been keeping a secret her whole life. And now her only confidant is her father’s new employee—a handsome Amish man who was once her childhood tormentor.

Samuel King knows more than anyone should about mistakes—and the way he treated Naomi is at the top of his list. But the shock of seeing her pretty face again is quickly overshadowed when they find a slumbering boppli abandoned on his porch. Caring for the sweet newborn together is finally bringing some peace to their troubled pasts. But when a spark leads to growing feelings as they start to look toward the future, Samuel must find a way to convince Naomi to trust the man he's become…and the promise of new love.

My Thoughts

A Promise of Forgiveness is written by JoAnn Brown. This is part of the Love Inspired Trade series. This is the second book in the Bliss Valley series. I have read book one. Like all Love Inspired they can be read as a stand alone. In this story we will see Amish widow, Naomi and her twin boys back at her parent's home in Bliss Valley. Oh, how my heart hurt for her. She clearly has some healing to do. The one thing that I love about this author is the fact that she creates real, unique characters. You can feel their emotions as you read. Naomi has a hard time letting go of the past.

We also see Samuel, who did not always treat Naomi the right away. He is shocked to see her back in town, with her children. He knows he needs to make things right, but since she has such a hard time letting go of the past, can he show her the man he has become?

I love the Love Inspired Trade series! It gives you more of a chance to know the characters. You see more of their story. In this one, it is well written, engaging and unique. I received a copy of this book through JustRead and the author, all thoughts are my own.
