Kat transformed in front of Jack. Her chin came up, her fingers stopped twitching with the fabric of her gown, and a real sparkle bubbled in her eyes. It was like watching Snow White come to life when the prince kissed her.

A heartwarming WWII historical from award-winning author Cara Putman:

Kat Miller has dreamed of playing baseball her entire life. When she earns a spot on a team in the All-American Girls Professional Softball League, she finds that things aren’t as glamorous as she imagined. She struggles with long road trips, grueling practices, and older teammates who are jealous of her success. And to top it all off, an irritating reporter is constantly getting under Kat’s skin.

Events in Jack Raymond’s career have left him cynical and distanced from God. He never wanted to write at a small paper, and he certainly didn’t want to be assigned to something as inconsequential as a women’s softball team. Then Kat walks into his life. The fiery, young softball player somehow climbs the walls around his heart and makes him want to hope again.

When lies fly and the league appears to fail, will Kat and Jack’s new love survive?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Baseball and War The author had me thinking about just how different life was during WWII, and she brought my attention to how things changed, but stayed the same. While the men were away at war a woman’s major league was established, and thus the basis of this book. We put faces to one of the teams, and in particular one of the players, a seventeen-year-old high school girl, Kat Miller. While I liked this main character, and the guy who turns her head, a reporter with the local paper, but there is an age difference here that concerned me. Now if the girl was 20 and he 27, not so bad, maybe things were different during the war. I did enjoy how these women played their hearts out, and think how much people must have enjoyed having a bit of normalcy in their lives. I loved being back in this time period. I received this book through Celebrate Lit, and was not required to give a positive review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A sweet baseball romance A Promise Forged by Cara Putman is the third book in the Buckeye Promises series formerly known as the Ohio Brides series. Kat Miller is chosen to play for the All-American Girls Professional Softball League. A league started by Mr. Wrigley to try to bring in some money since a lot of the male players had been called to join the war. Kat struggles with fitting in with the other jealous players, the long road trips and constant practices. Then there’s the reporter who wants to make a name for himself at all costs. While Kat struggles to keep her faith from faltering can she also help Jack to see his need for a renewal of his faith. This story wasn’t so much about a war-time trial baseball league as it was the story of a young girl turning into a woman. Learning to handle the hard life-lessons thrown at her along with learning to believe in herself. You felt all these struggles right along with Kat. Who hasn’t struggled with keeping God first when all around you life keeps galloping along. Mix in the thrill of getting to play America’s favorite pastime and you have the makings of a truly intriguing story. I received this book from the Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review.
