  • Love, greed, and more made a good story

    Another visit to the Promise Lodge, worth the read. Love continues to grow throughout the community despite a new threat to the leadership. I loved how Annabelle grew as she realized what she was truly missing. This story included a few life events, life lessons, and life-long loves. It was a detailed look at the Amish life with some excitement to be had and things to celebrate. I enjoyed it. I received a copy of this story through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

  • A heartwarming Amish romance!

    This is the fifth book in Charlotte Hubbard's Promise Lodge series. Set in a unique Amish community in Missouri, it follows Annabelle Beachey, whose husband abandoned her to become English. Now he wants her back and has traveled to Promise Lodge to reconcile with her. And he won't leave without her. There's the mystery of Bishop Clayton King, who arrives in Promise Lodge, claiming that the community is too progressive and is determined to change its ways, much to the dismay of everyone. And two brothers who make a five hundred dollars bet on which one can be engaged by Thanksgiving. This is a beautifully written and heartwarming Amish story about love, hope, faith, forgiveness, and second chances. The plot moves at a steady pace, and the unexpected twists and turns kept me engaged until the end. I really liked the peaceful setting of Promise Lodge, and the cast of characters was wonderful and so realistically described that they pulled you into their lives from the very start. The ladies of Promise Lodge were a caring and supportive bunch. I found it very refreshing that they were independent and owned businesses. This is a lovely and inspirational read, with plenty of romance, wonderful friendships, an intriguing mystery, and mouthwatering recipes. I will definitely be reading more by this author. I received an ARC from Kensington Books through NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  • A delightful story!

    Light Shines on Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard is the fifth novel in the Promise Lodge Series. I do recommend reading the series in order. It is the best way to understand the people and the community. I enjoyed reading Light Shines on Promise Lodge, and I did not want this delightful story to end. I thought it was well-written with steady pacing and a good flow. The characters are developed as well as endearing and continue to grow as individuals. All our favorites are back (Bishop Monroe, Christine, Preacher Amos Troyer, Gloria, Allen, Laura, etc.) plus we have the addition of Annabelle and Phineas Beachey. Annabelle’s husband left her to become English. She only knew he left because she caught him searching for her egg money. After her brother-in-law took over the farm and made Annabelle feel like a charity case, she relocated to Promise Lodge. Annabelle develops a backbone along with loving friends who care and support her. Phineas is determined to stay, but he will need to change his ways if wants to win back his wife. Cyrus Helmuth and his older brother, Jonathan make a wager that will end up causing hurt feelings. Hopefully, the pair will do some maturing along the way and learn a life lesson or two. Bishop Clayton King shows up at Promise Lodge claiming their community is too progressive. He is intent on making changes. Trouble has come to their peaceful community. Light Shines on Promise Lodge was an interesting story with its various storylines. I like how everything played out including the appearance of some special guests (I cannot say too much, or it will spoil it for you). I especially liked the mystery surrounding Bishop King. I have enjoyed watching Gloria go from a girl chasing boys to a woman who manages the cabins and apartments at the lodge. There are recipes from the Promise Lodge kitchen at the end of the book. Light Shines on Promise Lodge is a story about forgiveness, love, friendship, family, community and second chances. Charlotte Hubbard is a storyteller of the highest caliber. She weaves a tale that will capture and hold your attention from beginning to end. I hope there will be many more stories in this charming series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I loved this book!

    Charlotte Hubbard is a new to me author. I don’t know how she never made it on my tbr shelf, but that is no longer the case. I absolutely loved Light Shines on Promise Lodge. Annabelle’s husband, Phineas, has returned to her after leaving the Old Order Amish. He tired of their bishop’s restrictive ways. Promise Lodge is a community of Old Order Amish, but they are far more progressive. Another newcomer has come to Promise Lodge, a bishop who says they are too progressive and will lose God’s favor. I could not put this book down. Even though this is apparently the conclusion to the Promise Lodge series, I was not confused at all and really got to know the characters. I will go back, however, and read the books in order. I am now eagerly awaiting the author’s new series. Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington for the copy. All opinions expressed are my own.
