Well it was over, but they were parents of a daughter who had graduated from college, and she came home on vacation from her new job, and had to share her time with two parents who lived a couple hours apart. Tony begins anew at AA, and starts passing milestones. He is already up to 6 months, but not only that, his attitude was changing. He began apologizing, taking responsibility for his actions, claiming it was his fault, and at every opportunity rectifying situations and relationships. He was nice, and sweet, and loving. His old self had practically disappeared. He stopped his drinking and expecting others to meet his need first. He was nice to be with, and both his ex wife and his daughter came to a place of forgiving him and accepting him, especially during holidays and planning a family camping trip.
The part of the book that attracted me was that in moving to the log cabin, Allison found two old trunks in the attic. She had never been permitted in the attic as a child, so this discovery peaked her curiosity. She found treasure, but her best find was Aunt Emma's journals. They were written during the years from 1915 until her death in her eighties. Reading these chapters interspersed with present day happenings revealed some shocking secrets. I liked how much their lives took some of the same turns.
God worked in all of their lives, in Allison and Tony, but also in Aunt Emma.
The story is very clean Christian fiction, and I gave Robin five stars for how well she developed her characters. A great read!
I highly recommend A Promise Kept to every woman, no matter what her life experience, for encouragement and hope in your life journey.
While living there she finds journals written by her great aunt Emma. As she reads she sees a parallel with herself and her aunt. She solves the mysteries of her aunts life.
Through her daughter she finds that her ex husband has changed and finds that she can spend time with him. He has changed. She has changed also. God has changed both of them. Great book.
