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 émigré 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprise! The fourth in the Coming to America series, this one follows a German girl, Karola, who arrives in Idaho at the request of her first love, Jakob, who had promised to send for her when he left Germany 12 years earlier. She had given up hope of hearing from him. When she arrives, she is surprised to find he is a widower, with three children. She agrees to help him care for the children until harvest, but refuses to marry him. Slowly she comes to love his children, and the love between Jakob and Karola is new and stronger than before. A good story, but not as good as the first and third book.
