A Heart's Promise by Colleen Coble


Book review of A Heart's Promise by Colleen Coble


A rival threatens Emmie's budding romance with Isaac.

At Fort Laramie, soldier Isaac Liddle determines he will court and win Emmie Croftner's hand. Though courting seems improbable for a woman in her condition, Emmie begins to care deeply for Isaac and chafes as Jessica Dubois sets her bonnet for him.

When Jessica learns of Emmie's secret pregnancy, she blackmails her. With the Sioux Wars raging outside the safety of Fort Laramie, Emmie knows she cannot lose Isaac. But will he reject her--and her child--if he learns the truth?

Leona's Review:

This is another quick and easy read by Colleen Coble in the Journey of the Heart series.
It is a Christian love story and about friendship and caring. This book will touch your heart.

This story is of Emmie and Isaac and their love.  Isaac wants to marry Emmie but Emmie is afraid he will learn her secret; she is pregnant and a widow. We also see how hard a life was in these days and a hope for the future. This book begins October 1866, Fort Phil Kearny, Wyoming Territory.

The readers are back at Fort Laramie with uncertainty about the Sioux. There is friendship among the women, three are pregnant.

We are introduced to Maggie, the  lady who does the laundry to make money. Morning Song, a pupil of Sarah is reintroduced.

Colleen Coble does a great job of bringing the past characters of her books into each book.  Each book is a stand alone read.
I can see so many books from the characters.

The books of A  Journey of the heart are:

A Heart's  Disguise
A Heart's Obsession
A Heart's Danger
A Heart's Betrayal
A Heart's Promise
A Heart's Home
The book is dedicated to: In memory of my brother Randy Rhoads, who taught me to love the mountains of Wyoming and my grandparents Everett and Eileen Everroad, who loved me unconditionally. May you walk those heavenly mountains with joy.
