God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. But neither her husband nor her marriage had been saved. What had become of His promise? Tony Kavanagh had been Allison’s dream-come-true. They were in love within days, engaged within weeks, married and pregnant within a year. Her cup bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy had been extinguished by unexpected trials. The day Allison issued her husband an ultimatum, she thought it might save him. She never expected he would actually leave. She was certain God had promised to heal; it was clear that she'd misunderstood. Now, living in the quiet mountain cabin she inherited from her single, self-reliant Great Aunt Emma, Allison must come to terms with her grief and figure out how to adapt to small town life. But when she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emma’s attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman surprisingly like herself. As Allison reads the incredible story of Emma’s life in the 1920s and 1930s, she is forced to ask a difficult question: Does she really surrender every piece of her life to the Lord? Drawing from her own heart-wrenching story of redemption, A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher’s emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers—in His own time and His own ways. "Hatcher’s latest is an uplifting and heartwarming story about the power of faith to set people free from the pain of their pasts. Recommended where ­Tracie Peterson’s books (All Things Hidden; The Miner’s Lady) are popular." —Library Journal, STARRED Review

Lucy's Treasure is a book that explores women's rights and issues at the turn of the 20th century. It explores the limitations of primitive lifestyles of the backwoods culture of the area in that day. It exhibits tact, yet insight, into what's idealistic, when compared with what exists. It's about child abuse and neglect. It shows the horror of the experience and the insecurities of those that want to help. It's a book of love. In giving of oneself that provides the very ingredient that keeps a heart alive and believing in a hope of tomorrow. In the midst of total darkness, a ray of light shines from this helping hand that changed a child's destiny forever. It's of historical perspective from the early 20th century and its primitive culture that dominates this rural society that surrounds the child, Lucy Pierce. It's a book about religious controversy exploring the pain and suffering due to limited educational facilitation in medical fields and religious training of its clergy. It presents those that stay with stubborn beliefs even when life proves them to be wrong, yet uses them to hide ulterior motives that endanger the very life of the child at risk.
