In A Promise for Spring by ACF Book of the Year novelist Kim Vogel Sawyer, Geoffrey Garrett leaves his seventeen-year-old fiancée in England while he establishes his Kansas ranch and builds her a proper house. But when he sends for her five years later in 1874, it’s clear her feelings have changed far more than his. Despite his desire to marry and her wish to leave, they forge a compromise. If she remains as the ranch’s housekeeper until spring, he will pay for her trip back home. Download and start listening now!

    " The whole story moved way too slow and the bantering between the characters was predictable and a little boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam Duval | 1/10/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debdunk | 1/3/2014

    " Pretty good. The book as a whole was great until the end. It got a little too preachy and towards "Christian Lit" at the end for my taste. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maam | 11/26/2013

    " The story was okay but predictable and a little bit preachy at the end. Typical formula Christian novel. The accents on the CD drove me nuts...didn't sound at all English. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy Spicer | 11/4/2013

    " B; An easy listen Christian story based in the frontier days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 6/24/2013

    " I thought it was okay. I didn't necessarily like the initial plot of the book, but the secondary characters sort of grew on me. I loved the support of good friends that the heroine had; she needed them. I always like to read stories where a person's faith is rekindled. All in all, it was okay. "

    " I read this book in one day while traveling from TN to NJ by car. Once I started, it was hard to put down. I enjoy good Christian fiction and though I have only read one other book by this author, just before I read this one, I will definitely read more of Kim Vogel Sawyer's books. "

    " Finished by listening to audio. Don't think I would have gotten through it otherwise. Tells a good story and tries to throw in hardships and trials to offset the ridiculous good fortune that is seen by the end, but still very unrealistic. "
