Sometimes the hardest choice is the one our heart wants to make but our mind convinces us that it simply isn't for us. Emmie Croftner, knows all about bad choices. It wasn't enough to be born into a family where her older brothers pretty much dictated the way life would be lived and that she would spend her time serving their needs. To call them ruthless would be an understatement, and that is why she probably fell so hard for Monroe. Not only did she need the kind of attention and perceived love he was offering, but in a way it was an escape from her brothers. Perhaps if she had listened to her head more than her heart, her life would be different.
Instead, she learns that her marriage to Monroe was real. He was previously married to another woman and he had a child with her. So when Monroe died, Emmie was left with nothing, except being a child thanks to Monroe. Her only hope would be heading to Fort Laramie and staying with her sister in law Sarah to escape the looks and rumors she was now at the center of.
She just never expected to meet a man just as sweet as Monroe had appeared, but this time instead of listening to her heart, she is listening to her common sense. One that reminds her that all men are alike, that no matter how smooth talking they might be, how kind, they only have one thing in mind, and as much as she would love to give in, she isn't about to take that chance with Isaac. She'd rather be alone for the right reasons, than with someone for all the wrong reasons.
I received A Heart's Promise by Colleen Coble compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. Aside from a free copy of this book, I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. This is the 5th book in the Journey of the Heart Series, and I can't wait to see how it will all end up. Emmie is struggling to find her way among the women at the Fort and believes that she will find herself facing similar circumstances once the women find out about her past. One woman in particular will go to great lengths to ensure Emmie stays away from Isaac, a man she intends on marrying. Such a beautiful story of hope, renewal and forgiveness that has been the theme of this series from beginning to end. I'd rate this one a 4 out of 5 stars.
