Every year, young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive "resident" status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides!

In The Promise Box, the second book of best-selling author Tricia Goyer's Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, Lydia Wyse, a book editor from Seattle who grew up Amish, returns to the small community of West Kootenai to give comfort to her father after her mother's death. She is drawn back to the familiar Amish ways after finding her mother's most precious possession, a Promise Box of prayers and scripture. What her publisher sees, though, is an opportunity for a sensational "tell-all" book about the Amish.

Lydia soon finds herself falling in love with Amish bachelor Gideon Hooley. She wants nothing more than to forget her past and look forward to a future as an Amish bride. But will the pain of her childhood-and her potential betrayal of her community-keep her from committing her whole heart?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Goyer fans will be thrilled to find some familiar faces within the pages of her latest book. That's a bonus to an already winning read. I just love the concept of a promise box and found it a great catalyst for Lydia's faith journey. This is a sweet romance that develops between two hesitant people who are struggling with childhood hurts. I thought Goyer did a realistic job of portraying the way both Lydia and Gideon held onto unrealistic feelings of responsibility because of their past. Even though it appears irrational to an observer, it is very real to them and does colour their actions as adults which creates an interesting tension as their romance develops. The Promise Box is an inspirational romance that will inspire and encourage readers even as it entertains.
