    1. If you had stopped by my house this weekend, you would have found me crying over the fictional characters from Tricia Goyer’s latest Amish novel, The Promise Box. This book moved me because the heart of the story is the damaged relationship between a mother and daughter. The mother doesn’t understand her daughter’s choices. The daughter doesn’t appreciate her mother’s sacrifices.And the healing they need almost comes too late.I lost my mom in February. Though our circumstances differ f [...]


    2. I cannot begin to explain how much I love this story, but I'll give it a try. It is what I do after all.This is the kind of story that pulls on your heartstrings and in so many ways. You have sad moments that bring happiness with them, once you learn the whole meaning. For me, there seemed to be a few little stories going on that all surrounded these two main characters. In the end, it is all brought about together nicely.I often had to set the book down, specifically after a deep lesson was lea [...]


    3. Lydia Wyse left her Ohio Amish community when she discovered a traumatic secret about her birth. Her adoptive parents have never stopped loving her, and even moved to the small community of West Kootenai, Montana to be closer to Lydia. Now working for a publisher in Seattle, Lydia tries not to think about the faith she left behind, despite her boss’s persistent suggestions to write a book about her experiences. But when her mother dies suddenly, Lydia is thrust back into the faith of her child [...]


    4. Each of Trish Goyer’s latest novels I read is better than the last, and I marvel at how she can do that! The Promise Box is no exception – it is my favorite so far of her series “Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors.”Lydia and Gideon’s story has a sad beginning. Lydia Wyse, adopted by Amish parents at birth, left that upbringing to enter the English world and became a book editor in Seattle. She returned home to West Kootenai, Montana upon the death of her mother to care for her dat during [...]


    5. Lydia Wyse returns to West Kootenai, Montana for her "mem's" funeral. As a teenager she left her Amish family to discover her true identity. Her "mem" had left her a promise box containing small pieces of paper upon which she had written meaningful verses of scripture, special prayers and promises from God, as well as letters to Lydia. An adoptee, she had numerous unanswered questions about her biological family. Are the answers to her past included in the promise box?Gideon Hooley traveled to W [...]


    6. Tricia Goyer has done it again. In The Promise Box, the second book of her Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, the author is able to take two main characters with self doubts and flaws and endear them to the hearts of readers.Both Lydia and Gideon must deal with very painful realities from their pasts. Both realities are events they feel enormous guilt over. They must learn to trust that God has their past, present and future in His hands.The characters feel like real people, living real li [...]


    7.

Title: THE PROMISE BOXAuthor: Tricia GoyerPublisher: Zondervan BooksMay 2013ISBN: 978-0310335122Genre: Amish/romanceEvery 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.

    9. The Promise Box is an amazing story of faith and yet different from most other Amish books out there. Lydia doubts her own value in God's eyes after learning that her conception was the result of rape - and it changes her entire life. While she questions her place as an Amish woman, her larger question of why a good God allows bad things to happen is one asked by nearly everyone at some point in their lives. Lydia's journey to find the answer to that question makes up the bulk of this book - whi [...]


    10. FIRST, I have to say that, The Memory Jar and The Promise Box are my favorite among Tricia Goyer's Amish books, and I can not wait for the third book in the series to be released. Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors is a must read series; we need the reminder that everyone has their own person, with their own faults, and that is okay.I enjoyed following Lydia Wyse as she deals with death and her not so strong faith. She is a book editor from Seattle and is returning to the tiny town of West Kootena [...]


    11. After reading the first book in the series, The Memory Jar, and thoroughly enjoying it, I knew I was going to love this book before I even had my hands on it.Goyer has a knack for storytelling, building realistic characters who just want to be loved and to love God. Although Lydia wants to go back to her Amish roots, the publishing industry she's been a part of for so long has taken root too. Not to mention that Gideon is sweet, handsome and a real fine catch. But can she have them both? When he [...]


    12. I received the book for free through First Reads.The story in the Promise Box made me feel good and optimistic about myself. I think that Trisha Goyer's writing style flowed smoothly with just the right amount of drama, mystery, romance and conflict.The reminders of Jesus's love for us encouraged me to be hopeful for the future. Life can have a way of dragging us down, but a story like this one reminds us that we are "worth dying for". That quote was an ah-ha moment in the book and really stood [...]


    13. Having been provided this wonderful title from netgalley, I would first like to thank the Author and Netgalley for allowing me to read this book. Ah, I throughly enjoy amish tales, and this story was no different. It had a new age feeling to it and you have a great storyline to go with it. The twists and turns kept me interested, I just wish I had read the first book before this one! I think I will go buy some books from the great Author Tricia Goyer!


    14. A netgalley choice. This was a pretty good Christian fiction. Interesting characters and a plot with enought twists to make it interesting. I may check out more by this author.


    15. Of all the novels I've read in my life, I have to say that this one probably impacted me more than any other. Because this is the second novel in a trilogy, I didn't even read the synopsis of the story. I just dove right in after finishing book one. However, I had to make a decision in the first chapter - do I continue reading or stop? The main character, Lydia, is returning to her Amish home (after living in "the world") to bury her mother. I lost my mother unexpectedly a little over a year ago [...]


    16. This is book two in the Seven Brides For Seven Bachelors Series, The Promise Box by Tricia Goyer. After moving away from her Amish community to escape the pain of her birth Lydia is drawn back after her mother passes and she wants to be there for her father, but she soon realizes she misses her community and wonders if they will except her back, she also meets the handsome Amish Bachelor Gideon Holley, but will her painful past keep her from committing to a future as an Amish Bride? Lydia is giv [...]


    17. THE PROMISE BOX by Tracia Goyer book 2 "Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors".She always knew she was adopted, why then did Lydia later think it was a curse first. Running from Amish ways, and love of parents, didn't change anything about her birth. Coming home, seeing the grief of her father, and the memories of him, sitting by her bed as she slept. Her dad giving her a treasure box of her mother, will that change things. Meeting Gideon, whose past of when he was 4 haunt him, wanting answers, yet h [...]


    18. I was not a big fan of this book. First off, it felt like a second book. There's a fine balance between having a second book stand alone and re-capping what happened in previous books. This did not tread that line. I felt like I wasn't quite sure what was going on at first.My main gripe with this story was that nothing happened. Maybe it's because I'd just finished a book where a lot of stuff happens, but this book just seemed bland. Lydia's decision to stay Amish was no surprise except for how [...]


    19. I've decided that all Amish books end with the main characters getting married. But I guess it's the journey they take to that point that makes them all a bit interesting. I like that Amish people live such simple lives and their faith in God is amazing in the things they do to honor him and how they view him in their lives. Also like these books because it's good, clean romance and the Christian theme.


    20. I like to read the different stories about the Amish. This one had just a slight different spin to it. I thought it was very well written and it kept my interest. I found some parts very sad, but Tricia did not leave you there. I love the way she brought out some great life lessons in her telling of their story.


    21. Thursday, June 6, 2013The Promise Box by Tricia Goyer, ©2013 The story of her life filled notebook pages, as if she wrote about another. Words for the next sentence, next paragraph, trailed through her mind throughout the day. It was almost as if God was walking beside her, pointing out the beauty of everyday life, and breathing inspiration into her heart. It was new and different. She was new and different. If someone else would have declared such sudden changes she would have scoffed. Yet may [...]


    22. I absolutely loved this book. It touched me in so many ways and gave me many ideas. There aren't many books that have touched my heart the way this one did. Wow!


    23. Another masterpiece of a book by Tricia Goyer! She never fails to deliver when she writes about the Amish! So you think living the Amish life could/would be boring? Think again! Tricia Goyer makes writing about Amish living "very life-like and very real" in all of her books she writes. You can almost forget it's a book about the Amish you are reading until something that is Amish pops up.Tricia Goyer makes the characters human, facing everyday life, just like you and I live it. Even though this [...]


    24. Lydia Wyse left home at 16 and never looked back. She couldn't bear the thought that she wasn't wanted and was simply given up. It was something she had difficulty coming to terms with. Growing up Amish but learning that she was adopted. Her birth mother gave her up since she was a product of rape and didn't want the reminder to face every day after she was born. To her Amish mother who remained unable to have children, Lydia was a blessing from God. Feeling like she would never have the opportu [...]


    25. I LOVED this book, there are just no other words to describe how much I enjoyed this book.Filled with a certain suspense, a great amount of love for others, and God, what more can you ask for in a book?  The Memory Jar has all that and more.Tricia has a way with spilling words on the page, that make you look inside yourself and think about what would you do, what could you or what should you do. (Although I don't like the word should and it's a negative word) in this aspect, she's bang on.Not [...]


    26.

    27. REVIEWThe book is written from the view of a woman who left the Amish. It is the second book in a series. The first being THE MEMORY JAR. I'd recommend the first book but if you haven't read it, don't worry, THE PROMISE BOX stands on its own. Gideon Hooley is the center of the story, He has recently returned to his Amish community.The setting is a town in Montana, called West Kootenai. This is an Amish community. Lydia Wyse is returning home to her family to comfort her father. Her mother, her A [...]


    28. The Promise Box is the 2nd book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series by Tricia Goyer. The book takes place in Montana in a town that is popular among Amish men who come to the area in the spring to establish residency so that they will be eligible to hunt in the fall. Most arrive as bachelors but end up leaving with wives. That is how we meet Gideon Hooley who returns to the area not only to hunt but in search of answers from his past. Lydia Wyse was adopted by an Amish couple as a bab [...]


    29. Another great Amish read!This is the story of Lydia Wyse. She was raised Amish but has chosen to lead an "Englisch" life in Seattle, WA. The book starts off with the passing of her mom, so she returns home to West Kootenai, Montana.Enter Gideon Hooley, one of the "bachelors" that come at least 6 months before hunting season so they can gain residency for the hunt. We also see the mention of many characters from The Memory Jar. Just a note that you do not need to have read The Memory Jar to read [...]


    30. Lydia is returning to her Amish home in West Kootenai, Montana to mourn the passing of her mother. Lydia left the Amish way of life years before and has seldom returned. When she stops to take a picture of her family home she meets Gideon Hooley, a young bachelor there in the Kootenai for the hunting season.
