Book Review: A Heart's Promise by Colleen Coble

Book Description

A rival threatens Emmie's budding romance with Isaac.

At Fort Laramie, soldier Isaac Liddle determines he will court and win Emmie Croftner's hand. Though courting seems improbable for a woman in her condition, Emmie begins to care deeply for Issac and chafes as Jessica Dubois sets her bonnet for him.

When Jessica learns of Emmie's secret pregnancy, she blackmails her. With the Sioux Wars raging outside the safety of Fort Laramie, Emmie knows she cannot lose Isaac. But will he reject her-and her child-if he learns the truth? 

My Review 

A Heart's Promise is Book 5 in A Journey of the Heart Series.   It is short, quick read that really moves the characters forward.

I really enjoyed Emmie's story.  She is a warm, sympathetic character, and readers will get to know her better in this novella.  Emmie has had struggles in her life that make her wary of men, but she is a strong person and inspired by her faith and her feelings for Isaac.

I loved the Western setting (the Wyoming Territory) and the historical details.   I recommend this novel, and the Journey of the Heart series, for anyone who enjoys inspirational historical fiction.  I am already looking forward to continuing with Book 6!
