Promised to Another
by Laura V. Hilton (Whitaker House)
Like an Amish quilt, Laura Hilton’s Pennsylvania Dutch heritage is woven throughout the third book in her Amish of Seymour series. Promised to Another is the familiar story of pride and prejudice. Spirited school teacher Annie Beiler has fallen for newcomer Joshua Esh, but his flirtatious ways make her more defensive and guarded, especially when it seems his attention is directed at everyone other than her. But Joshua was attracted to Annie the moment he laid eyes on her. The only problem is she is promised to another, or so he thinks. And when Luke Schwartz, Annie’s ex-beau returns, things get complicated even for the simple life.
How this brings more to life: Honesty is the best policy. Promised to Another illustrates the need for honest communication and the warning that your sins will find you out.
