Today I am reviewing Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard.
Here is a brief synopsis:
“Hubbard writes Amish stories with style and grace.” —RT Book Reviews
It’s a better life, a fresh start — and a heaven-sent second chance. Founded by three Amish sisters determined to put misfortune behind them, Promise Lodge is a colony where faith’s abiding promise can be fulfilled — and love can make all things new…
Energetic widow Mattie Bender Schwartz is working day and night to get Promise Lodge going. She’s also hoping the change will help her son Noah’s heart to heal after his broken engagement.
But his former fiancée, Deborah, is looking for a fresh start too. Filled with regret, and cast out by her dat for a reason she can’t yet reveal, Deborah can only pray Noah will forgive her foolishness.
Deborah is the last person Noah expected to show up at Promise Lodge. But with her cruel words still ringing in his head, he’s reluctant to accept her apology–even if the Old Order ways demand he try.
If only he could obey Christ’s most important commandment: love one another. But one thing is certain–his mother and aunts, and their beloved Preacher Amos, will do their best to help him get there.

I was thrilled when I received an advance copy of Promise Lodge in the mail…
Charlotte Hubbard is definitely one of my favorite Amish fiction authors! From the moment I begin reading, I’m pulled into the story — and whenever possible, I don’t stop reading until I’m done.
This story was no different. My heart went out to Mattie, Rosetta, Christine, and Deborah — as well as the others who moved to Promise Lodge.
Mattie, Rosetta, and Christine are the Bender sisters — sisters who are determined to have a fresh start in a new community. And they’re expecting more families to relocate with them. Will they meet the right sort of families — or will trouble follow them?
Well, I have to admit, there are some moments when I caught myself holding my breath! But never for a moment, did I stop reading — until I reached the end.
Charlotte has created a wonderful new community in Promise Lodge, with fascinating characters and intriguing possibilities in this new series.
Don’t wait another minute. Order your copy today… you’re gonna love it!!!
God Bless You!
