Can Promises Made in Times of Struggle Endure 200 Years?
Visit historic American landmarks through the Doors to the Past series. History and today collide in stories full of mystery, intrigue, faith, and romance.
Young, spirited Josie Wilkins life is about to take a turn when faced with political turmoil and secret love in San Antonio of 1836. John Gilbert has won her heart, despite being a Protestant preacher who is forbidden to practice his faith in Texas. If he discovers the secrets of her painful past, he will never have anything to do with her. But then comes the Battle of the Alamo. Will either of them survive an epic battle for liberty to create a legacy of love?
Nearly 200 years later, Kayleigh Hewland takes breaks from her demanding job as a refugee coordinator working with Mexican migrants to attend flea markets where she has found a uniquely engraved ring that helps her discover who killed her parents. Enlisting the help of appraiser Brandon Mullins, they piece together a love story long forgotten. But will dangers linked to the ring end her own hopes for leaving a legacy built on hope, faith, and love?

    Great Dual-Time Story!

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on May 06, 2022

    This is an intriguing dual-time story revolving around the lives of two couples separated by almost 200 years. Josie Wilkins meets and falls in love with John Gilbert in 1835, but their romance is marred by Josie's secret past and the deepening conflict between Texians and Mexico. In the present time story, Kayleigh Hewland and Brandon Mullins forge a friendship as they work to uncover the history behind a unique cat's eye ring found at a flea market. Is this the same ring that was ripped from Josie's finger by the brutal Manuel Garcia? Were Josie and John able to survive the deadly Battle of the Alamo? What was the meaning of the engraving on the inside of the ring? I learned about the Texas Revolution and the Battle of the Alamo a long time ago and reading this book was like a refresher course in American history. I was totally invested in the plight of those brave people, and I couldn't wait to learn if there truly was a connection between Josie and Kayleigh. If you enjoy historical fiction and Christian romance, you will want to read A Promise Engraved. It is a fascinating addition to the Doors to the Past series. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
