"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.

    Lovely, heartwarming novel!

    Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard is set in Promise, Missouri. Mattie Schwartz, Christine Hershberger, and Rosetta Bender needed to get away from their town (Coldstream) and Bishop Obadiah (who tolerates violence against wives and turns a blind eye to his son’s activities). They bought tan old abandoned church camp and have started the Promise Lodge Colony (a place for a fresh start). They are advertising for other Mennonite and Amish people to come and join them. Everyone is working hard to the buildings and grounds up to date (as well as put in a vegetable garden and plant crops). Noah Schwartz (Mattie’s son) is glad to get away because his fiancé, Deborah Peterscheim broke off their engagement. Then Deborah shows up at Promise. Her father threw her out and she regrets her decision to break off her engagement to Noah. Will Deborah be able to show Noah that she has changed and regrets her actions? Can Noah ever trust Deborah again? Read Promise Lodge to see who wants a fresh start at Promise! I enjoyed reading Promise Lodge. It is a nice, easy to read novel that is heartwarming. The setting sounded just lovely, and I liked all the characters (especially the elderly sisters that come to lodge at the house). It is a little too preachy (a lot of scripture quotes), but I liked the theme of forgiveness and God’s will. I give Promise Lodge 4 out of 5 stars (which means I liked it). It is the first book of a new series by Charlotte Hubbard and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. I received a complimentary copy of Promise Lodge from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
